Picture Of The Day – 27th July 2018

I was thinking that until I finish preparing the historical articles I was planning, this kind of articles would serve well enough. Please tell us in the comments if you like them or not.

122 mm D-30 Howitzer mounted on a M113 chassis in Libya (there’s still a civil war there since 2014). The D-30 is of Soviet origin, produced since the early 60’s to this day. Judging from the photo, at least 3 were modified in this manner. Previously, only 120 mm mortars, various AT systems and AA weapons were seen mounted on the light 10-ton M113.

  1. I could be “mean” and compare this (kind of post) to something I know, but I won’t

    BTW: «Previously, only 120 mm mortars, various AT systems and AA weapons were seen mounted on the light 10-ton M113»

    that’s not true since there was a prototype using a M113 and mounting the XM103 105mm lightweight howitzer, in that configuration the gun “peeked” from the center of the chassis

    (here are photos of it)

      1. well, you mentioned mortars, AA and AT systems, there are official variants of all of them and thus I thought you were referring to all of them, both official and makeshift
