Watch: Latvia shows off its new howitzers

Take note – story published 7 years ago

Latvia's Armed Forces have released a video about their latest acquisitions -- 47 howitzers.

As previously reported by LSM, the self-propelled guns are being purchased from the Austrian army in a 6 million euro deal that will significantly increase firepower.

The video comes complete with various statistics about the equipment's capabilities -- and a thumping cinematic soundtrack as if the sight of a massive gun going bang wasn't exciting enough on its own.

The footage is from Austria where Latvian troops are familiarizing themselves with their new vehicles.
