arms manufacturers, Denel
The G5 was used extensively by the US Army in the Gulf War because of its massive range. It can fire a 155mm exploding projectile 30kms.
The G5 is so large, its is usually towed by a gun-tractor. However, it is such a clever killing tool that it can be self-propelled up to speeds of 16 km/h. The gun can be driven with its barrel forward in the travelling or firing position, ready to blast people and things.
The G5 can readily be transported by rail, sea or air, fitting comfortably into a freight aircraft such as the C130. A crew of five men can bring the G5 into or out of action within only 2 minutes.
