China moves troops to North Korean Boarder
(April 12th 2013) Video footage has been found of China sending tanks and troops to the North Korean Border. Although China would NOT likely back North Korea in a conflict, they may have to deal with a refugee problem if a war does break out. It is also possible that China may want to take control of North Korea should the current regime collapse.
Scenes from inside the M109A6 Paladin howitzer during live-fire operation. The Paladin has 4 crew members: Commander, Driver, Gunner and Loader. It can travel at a maximum speed of 40mph, and can be fired in less than 60 seconds after it comes to a stop. The Paladin self-propelled howitzer has a firing range of 24 km using unassisted rounds or 30 km using assisted rounds. But some Paladins have been upgraded to fire the Excalibur GPS/extended-range projectile, which has a range of 40 km with an accuracy of 10 m. The Excalibur round was first deployed to Afghanistan in 2008. Film Credits: SSG Noel Gerig, SGT Linsey Williams, SGT Lawren Massey, SSG John Higgins
