BIG GUN.

Soldiers conduct a fire coordination exercise with an M109A6 Paladin at the Grafenwoehr Training Area in Germany, August 21, 2017. These soldiers are assigned to Battery B, 3rd Battalion, 29th Field Artillery Regiment.

The Paladin is not a tank but a self-propelled howitzer, a field artillery piece that fires its shells at a high trajectory.

This what it looks like when it fires that big gun.
