Bring Enough Gun: M110 Self-Propelled Howitzer

Spotted this in Salamanca NY:

M110 Self-Propelled Howitzer - Salmanca

M110 Self-Propelled Howitzer – Salmanca

According to Wikipedia, the M110A2 8 inch / 203 mm Self-Propelled Howitzer became obsolete when improvements in smaller guns matched its range and firepower. The double-vent muzzle brake is diagnostic for the A2 model.

It seemed an odd decoration for a town inside an Indian reservation; we didn’t stop to read the plaque.
