The M107 is a long-ranged self-propelled gun intended to propel heavy projectiles over vast distances, with the intent of attacking strategic targets in the enemy's rear area from the frontline. Examples of such targets include fuel dumps, train stations, airbases, and command centers. The vehicle requires a crew of 13! The commander, driver and three gunners ride on the M110 and subjected to the elements as it has no cab/turret. The remaining 8 ride on the M548 Field Artillery Ammunition Support Vehicle, with the rounds, fuel and charges. The M437 High Explosive rounds have a range of up to 32.7km and former SRC developed round could reach 40km.
