The M107 175 mm SPG is built on the same chassis as the M110 8" SPG. It was built as a replacement for the 155 mm M44 that utilized the M4 Sherman chassis. Used in Vietnam, the M107 was capable of firing a 175 pound projectile 20 miles at a low fast trajectory. The M107 was an inaccurate artillery piece but was utilized for preparatory bombardments.
