Artillery system is a heavy and long ranged military weapons. The system consist of military weapons such as howitzer, rocket, and mortar to fire for far distance target that are beyond the reach of small range munitions. Multiple countries are using artillery systems in their defense forces during war situation to fire munitions over a long distance. Technological advancement upgraded the artillery systems to lighter, self-propelled, more mobile, and enhanced the firepower for battlefield use. Artillery systems are increasingly used in defense forces owing to its precise firepower, superior accuracy and less reload time.
