What is a M108?
The M108 L30 is a self-propelled howitzer used by the United States military. It was developed as part of the family of artillery systems based on the M108 chassis, including the M109 self-propelled howitzer.
Here are some critical details about the M108:
- Calibre and Barrel Length: The M108 is equipped with a 105mm calibre gun with a barrel length of 30 calibres, which means the barrel is approximately 3.15 meters (10.33 feet) long.
- Self-Propelled Platform: The M108 is mounted on a self-propelled platform, allowing it to be mobile and manoeuvrable on the battlefield. It is based on the chassis of the M108 tracked vehicle.
- Crew and Operation: The M108 is operated by a crew of five personnel, including a commander, a driver, a gunner, and two loaders. It is designed to provide indirect fire support to ground forces.
- Firepower and Ammunition: The 105mm gun on the M108 can fire various types of ammunition, including high-explosive shells, smoke rounds, and illumination rounds. It has a range of several kilometres and can engage targets at extended distances.
- Service History: The M108 was introduced into service with the U.S. Army in the 1960s and saw action during the Vietnam War. More modern artillery systems, such as the M109 series, eventually replaced it.
