    Good stuff. Looks like they have been holding off on using the towed artillery until just recently, as that vid dates from a few days ago.

My first guess was that the gun might be a M-1937 ML20 since it has the correct looking tow carriage, but there were other dissimilarities to dissuade me from calling it that one.




    130MM M46..
    Range 27kms with regular rounds, with extended 40kms..

    Could be Chinese or Russian..

    That's the ticket - thanks! I found this pic which shows the 4-wheel tow, and the hardware all looks the same on the gun:

    More Rebel artillery - I think I count 8 gun tubes but can't be sure as the cameraman has Parkinson's I think.

    ^I think thats a repost


    The Muslim fasting month of Ramadan begins at the start of August, but rebels on Libya's western front say they'll continue fighting to liberate their country from Kadhafi.
    You have to admire their faith/conviction.

    Possibly. But those markers look surprisingly uniform. Like they're less something the rebels scrounged up and more something someone is giving them to use. If I were handing out such markers, I'd treat the material so they show a specific way on night vision, make them harder to duplicate.
