    Well, I guess I'm more than a little confused... seems to me, when I went through Artillery School at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, they were phasing out the 175mm Gun, for the shorter tubed 8 Inch Howitzer, whose fused projectiles weighed 200 pounds. Didn't the two artillery pieces above fire the same sized shells??

    Hi GunbunnyinaMABsal;
    The 175mm is about the 7.2 inch mark so if you put a 175mm shell into a 8 inch tube & fired, all that you would get would be flame & smoke from the charge, the shell would stay in the breech. not my idea of fun on a gun position!

    Oh well, I learn something new every day. The only problem is that I also forget something old every day as well...

    Old school artillery quiz, u.s.army style!!

    OK, it's been 5 months since the last quiz, so I feel it's time for a new quiz, U.S.Army style: Old School Style:

    1. What is the maximum effective firing range of an M16A1 rifle?
    2. What is the weight of a circa 1978 155mm Howitzer HE Round, in lbs.?
    3. What is the weight of a circa 1978 8 Inch Howitzer HE Round, in lbs.?
    4. What are the two colors of powder charges used by the U.S.Army Field Artillery in 1978, (self-propelled units only, please)?
    5. What tracked vehicle was utilized by U.S.Army self-propelled field artillery units to supplement Gun ammunition in Germany in 1978?

    I realize it's only a short quiz, but given the attention span of some of our members, I didn't want to take a chance on losing any of them...

    4. Green and White Bag. Hey, I oughtta' know, I personally loaded and unloaded hundreds of containers in the Ammo Section.

    Next time I'll post a Thread for all to see.

    HAPPY ST. PATTY'S DAY!!
