M1128 Mobile Gun System In Action


The M1128 Mobile Gun System (MGS) is an eight-wheeled armored fighting vehicle mounting a 105 mm tank gun. Because the vehicle was designed without air conditioning, crews are given individual cooling vests that circulate cooled water from outside the vehicle to the garment. The MGS can store 18 rounds of main gun ammunition in the turret. It has a rate of fire of six rounds per minute
