This Is My Rifle, This Is My Gun

General Barnicke: Where have you been soldier?
John Winger: Training, sir.
Soldiers: Training, sir.
General Barnicke: What kind of training?
John Winger: Army training, sir.
Soldiers: Army training, sir.
-- Stripes

Yes, "Army Training!" as seen in the small film @ Boots & Sabers: Artillery 101.

I was RIGHT!!!

Mom said "What kind of cannon is that?"

"Looks like a 57mm, but I'm not sure..."

And John of Arrrgh (who I'll NEVER cross on a nomenclature call) confirmed my opinion.

(It was the spindly trails and the scalloped ballistic shield that gave it away. I assembled a model kit of one many years ago.

I'd say the loader has a shattered pelvis, btw.
