Comparing K9 and Ceasar Shoot and Scoot capacity...and why the Archer is the best truck based system in the world...

The Nexter Caesar truck mounted howitzer has many fans.  They shout about its relatively small size (for a truck with a big gun!), its lightness and its mobility (especially along roads).

What they ignore is the slow rate of fire.  In high intensity combat against a technologically capable foe, being able to shoot and scoot will be important.

Now check out the vid below.

Love it or hate it but you can't deny one simple truth.  The Archer is best for not only sustained fire in low intensity combat but is the best truck based howitzer for high tech warfare too.

Note.  I said truck based howitzer, not best howitzer.
