Canadian Artillery Direct Fires On Steel Targets

Video shows 1st Regiment Royal Canadian Horse Artillery conducting direct fire testing on various vehicle-shaped targets fabricated from mild to hardened steel with 105mm and 155mm Howitzers.

Although artillery pieces such as these are not suggested, or even practical, direct fire anti armor weapons, they can be used as such in critical circumstances. As seen in the following video, if a hit can be made, the armored vehicle is likely to be destroyed, or at least disabled. However, the likelihood of an artillery piece being able to adjust fires onto a moving vehicle and make a hit is improbable at best.
