Default offensive weapon

Despite weighing in at a heafty 45 tonnes,the British army's self propelled gun can burn across the battlefield at 53km/h and fire a salvo of three shots in 10 seconds.Its big enough to live in,which is exactly what we-who have to drive,maintain and fire it-are expected to do.Gunners have to be strong enough to handle the 43kg shells,and with on-board computer systems to help the gun navigate around the battlefield and find its target,we need to use our brains aswell.lol..yeh right.

Could any American counterparts out there share any of there experience and information on there particuler roles?

Thanks.
