An alternative method to establishing janual is to lay the degraded howitzer using conventional methods IAW FM Enter your mobile number or email address below and we’ll send you a link to download the free Kindle App.

When digital communications with the Paladin are lost for any reason, collocate degraded howitzer within meters of an operational howitzer and use the data computed by the operational howitzer.

Missions with the highest priority should be stored on the Paladins. It was designed at the same time as the M The MA5 variant is the manuzl most advanced “factory” variant of the original M production series in use by non- U. If both systems are down, the non-operational howitzer will co-locate and use the firing data from an operational howitzer which is located meters from the degraded howitzer.

Many manufacturers have fielded system improvements since the MA5 which are designed to be incorporated into the exported MA5 vehicles providing improved mobility, communications, battlefield integration and fire control.

The vehicle carried 28 rounds. Manuak gunner is not required to add or subtract mils from the referred deflection as in conventional reciprocal lay procedures. Table A-1 outlines procedures to be followed if POC operations become degraded.


Fitted with a short caliber mm M howitzer with muzzle brake and a distinctive large “lazy D”-shaped fume extractor.

FM Appendix A Degraded Operations

The chassis is longer than the original M providing greater internal volume. As applicable, those TTPs for Paladin operations which majual not differ significantly from those described in FM or FM are not repeated in this manual. Consideration must be given to FPFs and Copperhead. Most subsystem failures can be overcome by working around the faulty subsystem with alternate procedures.

A medium howitzer version, the M was introduced originally but was later canceled to minimize duplicity in the U. Ask about our Supply Management Services. Production deliveries began in April The POC is the “brain” of the Paladin platoon. The first m109z6 from standard mabual became operational in The turret configuration of the MA6 requires the howitzer being laid to be positioned to the left front of the operational howitzer.

The operational howitzer is already on the back azimuth of lay. All other missions should be recorded and deleted.

The gunner of the operational howitzer again sights on the pantel of the degraded howitzer and reports the referred deflection. We are here to help. New double-pin, double-block Introduced inmost of m109w6 global M fleet were retrofitted to the MA3 designation standard. The gunner of the operational howitzer sights on the pantel of the degraded howitzer.

Newer versions, MA6 and beyond are referred to as the Paladin and offer manua, automation and advanced capabilities including fully autonomous battlefield mobility. The MA1 weighs 53, lb 24, kg fully loaded and is 29ft 8-in 9.

The PIM vehicle has a pivot-steer function so that when targets are beyond the traverse limit, the vehicle can m109w6 to that target as fast as the original system could traverse its turret. This limitation is due to the limited traverse of the pantel ballistic shield of the Paladin. The procedures are as follows:. The procedures for reciprocal laying are somewhat different than those for reciprocal laying of previous M series howitzers.

There’s a problem loading this menu right now. Then, as with any howitzer laid by conventional means, aiming points for the degraded howitzer are established and recorded IAW FM If the AFCS or navigation system of a Paladin howitzer becomes non-operational, the easiest way to maintain fire capability is to reciprocally lay using an operational Paladin.

This gives the two gunner’s sights clear fields of view off the left sides of the respective howitzers Figure A M mount Rate of Fire: The drive sprocket is located at front with track idler at the rear and no return rollers are used.
