Note that I don't care whether someone is getting a handgun or a howitzer , as long as they maintain it and know how to safely operate the thing.
Both pilots took turns calculating the power required to safely drop off the howitzer at Bagram.
But because the distance was too great, the howitzer shells burst high in the air and did no damage beyond frightening the fleeing people.
We crossed quickly, followed by the rifle and the howitzer and the rearguard.
For example, his five divisions had only 118 guns each - a third of the standard number; there was an almost total lack of howitzers , trench mortars, grenades and high explosive ammunition.
Coalition special forces soldiers destroyed at least five enemy howitzers during that operation.
They also offer a look into little-known innovations, such as precision artillery shells for howitzers developed for the US Army.
To replicate realistic conditions in a combat scenario, an artillery battery should set up howitzers and conduct simulated fire missions before conducting marksmanship training.
By the end of the war he had a million men, two-thirds of whom had not yet seen action, and new machine guns, artillery including howitzers , with growing numbers of shells and even wireless supplies.
All types of artillery were used in mountainous terrain, but mortars, mountain guns, and howitzers proved by far the most adapted to action on difficult, rugged terrain.
