PICTINNY ARSENAL, N.J. -- Picatinny employees participated in an M777A2 and M119A3 howitzer live fire event with the New Jersey National Guard at Joint Base McGuire–Dix–Lakehurst, New Jersey, Aug. 26. The NJNG's  3rd Battalion, 112 Field Artillery unit received training on the upgraded, digitized howitzers. With the new, digitized howitzers, the crews will be able to fire rounds faster and with more accuracy.

Both howitzers are managed by the Project Manager Towed Artillery Systems at Picatinny.
