The M109A2 is an upgraded version of the American 155 mm self-propelled howitzer, in service since the early 1960s. Undergoing various upgrades, most recently the M109A7, the M109 is the most common Western indirect-fire support weapon of both armoured and mechanised infantry divisions.
Manned by a crew of four, the M109A2 is armed with a 155 mm gun, capable of direct fire in case needed, in addition to a turret mounted .50 cal general purpose machine gun for self defence.
Various operators still deploy the M109 self propelled howitzer in combat such as the M109A3 variant, in service with the Lebanese Armed Forces.
