notes"The L119 Light Gun was designed to provide a lightweight field gun that could be towed by vehicle or airlifted by transport aircraft (fixed-wing and rotary types) while also being light enough to be moved into position by its crew. The L119 hails from the L118 family of guns and has been modernized in several ways, including an integrated power supply, muzzle measuring device, optics upgrade, new sights, and lightening of the carriage. The primary difference between the L119 and its L118 parent gun is a modification to fire US 105 mm M1 NATO projectiles."
