US Artillery modernization program.

Recommended Posts

So I found some interesting informations. It seems US Army works on new howitzer XM907 ERCA. This howitzer will become armament of both M109A7 and M777A2 systems.
 
What is interesting is that development program aims not only for this new L52 howitzer, but also at development of autoloader, new propelant charges and new projectiles. It is said that XM907 ERCA maximum range will be around 70 km's.
 
 
There is already a M777A2 mockup with L52 gun, used for mobility and static tests.

I also found this document when we can see CAD model of M109A7 with XM907 ERCA installed.
 
 
It's interesting development, gonna try to dig something more about it.
