Pic of the day. U.S. Army M109A6 Paladin sending...

A U.S. Army M109A6 Paladin deployed in support of Combined Joint Task Force - Operation Inherent Resolve - عملية العزم الصلب fires during a training operation at Camp Manion

Hmm.  Interesting.  The M777 operated by the USMC gets most of the attention, so much attention that I didn't know the Army had M109A6's in country.  But it does raise a question.  The Army operates the M777.  It's lighter, strategically mobile etc.  Why would they send self propelled guns to Iraq for fire support?  It doesn't fit the kind of fight we're seeing.
