The lights are on, but someone’s definitely home. And they’re inside this M109A6 Paladin self-propelled gun, firing a 155mm howitzer round during training in Jordan on August 27, 2019. It’s all part of Eager Lion, a major U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) exercise that aims to integrate forces in a multilateral environment, operate in realistic terrain and strengthen military-to-military relationships with Middle East partners.

Part tank and part artillery piece, the 78,000-pound Paladin first entered Army service in 1963. An extensive upgrade is underway.
