notes"The M107 175mm self-propelled gun was used by the U.S. Army from the early 1960s through to the late 1970s. It was part of a family of self-propelled artillery that also included the M110. It was intended to provide long-range fire support in an air-transportable system. It was exported to several other countries including Germany, South Korea, Spain, Greece, Iran, Israel, Italy, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and Turkey. The M107's combat history in U.S. service was limited to the Vietnam War; it also saw extensive combat use in Israeli service. The M107 shared many components with, and in many cases was replaced by, later versions of the M110 8-inch howitzer. Although withdrawn from U.S. service in the late 1970s, it continues in service with some armies as of 2019."

name"Note"
value"The dominant recognition feature of the M107 is its 175 mm gun, which is thin, extremely long, and has a bull barrel. The gun sits atop a carriage in a slot that allows the tube to recoil rearward. This carriage is attached to a rotating mount at rear of the chassis, while the front of the carriage is attached to a pair of tall, narrow gun carriage cheeks by a pair of long pneumatic struts."

notes"this is basically the same chassis, mounting a 203 mm howitzer instead of a 175 mm gun. Because both the M107 and M110 are fully-modular and thier weapons are easily interchangeable, M107s frequently became M110s - and vice-versa - in armies that operated both weapons."
