In a salute to tax day, if you have to give money to Uncle Sam, at least hope it goes towards something awesome and not a federal study of modern art as interpreted through dumpster fires.
Below, we see something awesom in the form of an M109A7 Artillery System. This particular Paladin is assigned to Delta Battery, 1st Battalion, 5th Field Artillery Regiment, 1st Armored Brigade Combat Team, out of Fort Riley, Kan. It is shown stationed in Torun, Poland during a field artillery Table-12 certification, March 13, 2019.
“Artillery certifications such as this take place on each unit level to ensure that the battalion as a whole is a lethal fighting force able to respond to any situation in support of the NATO effort in Atlantic Resolve.”
Of course, grunting those big 95-pound shells around the inside of that cramped gun house of a Paladin is another story…
