WATERVLIET-- Soldiers from the New York Army National Guard’s 1427 Transportation Company work with employees of the Watervliet Arsenal to unload an experimental cannon at the Arsenal’s museum on Wednesday, April 13. The one-of-a-kind light weight 155 millimeter howitzer had been designed by the Arsenal as part of a 1995 crash program to put a lighter-weight towed weapon in troop’s hands. The gun never went into production but the prototype has been stored in Vermont where the National Guard Soldiers picked it up for transport to the Arsenal.
