range cannon:

    Most state-of-the-art artillery can fire about 30 km (18.6 miles) away. With its Extended Range Cannon Artillery program, the U.S. Army can now fire 155mm rounds more than 60km (37.3 miles). Ground commanders can also shoot GPS-guided Guided Multiple Rocket Launch Systems as far as 70km (43.5 miles) and ground-fired Army Tactical Missile System missiles as far as 300 miles in some cases. Finally, the Army is exploring land-fired Tomahawk cruise missiles and developing a new ground-launched precision-strike missile capable of reaching 500km (310.7 miles). But how about 1,000 miles? Well, maybe, perhaps by 2023, should Army weapons developers stay on course with an ambitious long-range cannon science and technology program aimed at engineering a low-cost, high-rate-of-fire 1,000-mile ground cannon....

    What if an attacking U.S. Army ground force knew its ultra-long-range artillery had already decimated enemy supply lines and troop fortifications in advance of their move to take out the enemy? Moreover, what if all of that bombardment had been done from a safer standoff range? It is not hard to imagine that such a U.S. force could maneuver with more confidence and more clearly-defined objectives by virtue of having already achieved certain essential battle aims. With this kind of scenario in mind, the Army has employed engineering adjustments to increase its 155mm artillery power and literally “double” the range out to as far as 70km (43.4 miles). ARMY TO TEST AND SHOOT WEAPONS AT NEW MOBILE PROTECTED FIREPOWER PROTOTYPES The...
