Ukrainian M777 crew doing rapid take-down

https://files.catbox.moe/7xdg8w.MOV
Video of Ukrainian crew packing up and hitching a M777 is 80 seconds (according to the video post article on Telegram). This appears to be practice as there’s no evidence the gun was just shooting (also being out in a field). It’s good to see they’re getting better and this should reduce the number of times these guns need to be shipped out for repair.

    Looks like it might have been fired at least once due to the amount of dust that was kicked up and how the dirt was on the feet.

    Pretty fast but they’re doing a few things that could break the gun.

    Pretty good. I wonder why they don’t give Ukraine some M198s though.
    They don’t even need to use them in mobile units, just put them near Kharkiv or Mykolaiv and use as point defense

      russians still would nuke those static guns into oblivion, as russian doctrine revolves entirely around saturation barrages from heavy artillery they quite literally have more than enough howitzers to cover the entire frontline
      ukraines only chance is for everything to be highly mobile and never depend on static emplacements

      Got to stay comfy to be highly effective. I hear PzH2000 has a builtin beer keg and Caesar has a baguette maker.

      Didn't a British SPG get absolutely nuked by its own tea boiler once?

        I don't remember but if they boil dry I can potentially can see it happening if the sensors and protections failed. It's a live heating circuit after all.

      lol
      I was under the impression that Poland made these.
      This video showed me that they in fact just put this together with foreign parts.
      Will never into space.

          even if poland had the industry and technology to into space, poland doesn't have a viable orbital launch site

          if poland wants to into space you'll have to go annex mozambique or something

            i think kaliningrad would make a decent launch site

              >can't launch south, overflying poland
              >can't launch north, overflying sweden
              a good launch site is an east coast location with a couple thousand miles of sea downrange (Cape Kennedy, Boca Chica, Hainan, Kourou), and failing that the middle of nowhere with a couple thousand miles of nothing downrange (Baikonour, which is inclination limited because they have to avoid overflying China)

              Launch sites like Kodiac and Vandenburg are fine for polar orbits (launching directly north or south) and retrograde orbits (which you don't want generally because you're playing in oncoming traffic)

          Is the Krab's breech shaped like a toilet so that the crew feels right at home when it needs cleaning?

      We really should have adaptive remotely operated systems for any kind of big gun like this. I'm sure the Ukes would have really loved to strap their ancient anti-tank guns to something like this for improvised indirect fire.

        new versions of Archer are using a MAN truck instead of a Volvo hauler so who knows, Ukraine might buy some after the war cause the thing's basically supposed to just shoot, dip and repeat so fast that no radar or counterbattery will realistically hit it

      why did they go the extra way of making an automated encasement for the barrel? Better accuracy through more uniform barrel temperature when it's sitting in the sun?

    Incorrect. This is the previous video they put five rounds downrange before packing up.

      More than 5 actually. There's at least a sixth right as the video starts.

    Do they still use this vs mobile artillery just due to cost or are there other factors like mobile artillery being easier to pick up on radar?

    Can the M777 be used on a hard surface like asphalt?
