The M-108 was first fielded in 1962, as a replacement for the troubled M52 self-propelled howitzer. It was developed from the T195 self-propelled gun testbed, which itself was later further-developed into the 155-mm T196 six months later. The M-108 was intended to be the short-ranged component of a new generation of US Army self-propelled artillery, alongside (from shortest range to longest) the 155-mm M109, the 203-mm M110, and the 175-mm M107. The model was done on MAX 2013, only the tracks & lights are mapped & textured, maps included. Rendered with MentalRay.
