The old is new again. Reports have surfaced indicating that ISIS has gotten their hands on a new weapon, a modified field artillery 155 mm howitzer most recently used by some Iraqi artillery units against allied forces during the Persian Gulf War.
The weapon, a GC-45 (Gun, Canada, 45-calibre) 155 mm howitzer, has been part of the arsenal of the Iraqi Army since the 80’s. The GHN-45 variant has a longer range than any coalition cannon systems, which if ISIS got a hold of could be a concern for neighboring villages and coalition forces.
