Howitzer training

Marine Corps Base Camp Joseph H. Pendleton is the nation's busiest military base. Troops train hard on this M198 towed howitzer that shoots as far as 30,000 meters. After dropping into an 8-foot-wide bank built on a trailer and launching out of a 6-foot-wide ramp, Pat Duffy bean-plants to fakie on the howitzer while Daniel Dhers cannonball flairs.
