More rumour gumpf from the MOD. Kings Troop are testing a 155mm pack howitzer which can be broken down and carried by a team of 4 horses/mules...Mortars - I can buy that; but a feckin 155? Thats a 96lb shell. What are they gonna use out there? Suffolk Punch? Any one in the know enlighten us?
 
4 horses would struggle towing a 155mm gun let alone carrying one. Even the German's 75mm mountain gun in WWII broke down into more than 4 mule loads.

What about these new super mules the mod are breeding? Designed to pull the as90 when the army cant afford fuel due to defence cuts
