M777 Towed Howitzers (155mm/39-calibre)
Mobile forces require quality systems that are quick and easy to transport. Through the innovative use of titanium and aluminium alloys, the M777 is rapidly deployable and consistently accurate.
Highly portable by land, sea and air, the system features a minimal logistical footprint alongside maximum reliability. This means that it can be frequently moved and re-deployed, maximising survivability, without encountering the IED risks that selfpropelled systems face. The weapon can strike over extended distances, regardless of terrain and obstacles. It is compatible with all standard ammunition types, as well as advanced rounds such as Bonus and Excalibur.
Its strengths have been proven in battle, particularly in Afghanistan where it has been in service since 2006. Over 40,000 rounds fired have proven its simple, dependable operation, even in harsh desert climates.
