Australian Military Vehicle Walkaround
Australian M198 155mm Howitzer
These photos were taken at the celebration of the Australian Army's 100th birthday on 10 March 2001 in Canberra in front of the Australian War Memorial. It was a great day with most of the equipment currently in service, on display for the public to see.
GySgt D.J Kilby (Ordnance Chief 29 Palms) of the US Marine Corps has compared these photos with SMC M198s and cannot find any differences between the US and Australian M198.
