Howitzer

Served by a crew of eight, the 105mm M102 Howitzer entered service with U.S. forces in Vietnam in 1964. Lighter than its World War II-era predecessor, the M101, the M102 Howitzer was towed behind a vehicle or transported by air. It introduced other improvements in light artillery, such as better traverse and a lower silhouette, making it less susceptible to enemy detection.
