notes"The M114 155mm howitzer, which was replaced by the M198, is a towed weapon first produced in 1942 as medium artillery. The weapon uses NATO standard 155mm ammunition, with a range of about 14,000m, and was used during World War II, in Korea, and in Viet Nam. Until recently they were in service with the National Guard. It was the U.S. Army and Marine Corps' principal 155mm howitzer until the introduction of the M198 in the early 1980s. It was exported to many other countries as well."
