Union Jack lh

Sergeant Aaron Buttress is Gunline Section Commander for 16 Battery, 26 Regiment, Royal Artillery. In this video, he talks about keeping a level head, counting ammunition and working with one of the most powerful guns in the British Army's artillery arsenal. The AS90 is fitted with a 155mm, 39 or 52-calibre gun barrel. In trials, two AS90 guns were able to deliver a total payload of 261kg on to a single target in less than ten seconds.
