XM240 105-mm Howitzer
The USA was concerned in the 1970's with the development of a new lightweight construction 105mm field howitzer. Designated the XM240, this cannon never was introduced into service with American armed forces, even though the weapon was of advanced design. The XM240 rested for shooting on a turntable and did not have not a carriage in the usual sense. The cannon was supported in front by an arm with two rollers.
