    II Marine Expeditionary Force

    Marines with Charlie Battery, 1st Battalion, 10th Marine Regiment conducted a direct fire drill with M777 A2 howitzers on Camp Lejeune, N.C. Dec. 4, 2017. The M777 is an indirect fire weapon used to support troops with a myriad of fires from a long distance including high explosives, illumination to identify enemies at night and smoke to conceal friendly troop movement on the battlefield. Direct fire is used to defend an artillery position by lowering the gun tube to engage targets only hundreds of meters away. (U.S. Marine Corps video by Sgt. Matthew Callahan)
