Marines set new Artillery range record.
Golf Battery, 2nd Battalion, 11th Marines, out of Camp Pendleton, Calif., dropped the 155mm M982 Excalibur round on insurgents 36 kilometers away — more than 22 miles — in Helmand province. The strike was launched Feb. 12 from an M777 howitzer on a mountainside at Forward Operating Base Zeebrugge, in Kajaki, to neighboring Musa Qala district, Marines said.


It marks the longest operational artillery shot in history for the Marine Corps, said Capt. Joshua Kling, the battery commander.

"Vengeance is Mine" sayeth the Lord, but occasionally he lets the Marines use the "Smite" button.
