Found in the extensive photo galleries on Stryker Brigade News. It’s a graveyard of Iraqi equipment. The two elephants front and center appear to be French-built AUF-1 155mm self-propelled artillery. Yes, FRENCH-built. I spent quite a bit of time going through Russian and Chinese vehicles trying to match this up, but this isn’t one of them. It’s a frog.
I like the look of these French guns. Just like they are. Just where they are.
(And if anyone wants to send me more info on this location, don’t be shy.)
UPDATE: A reader forwards the link to the FAS page on the AUF-1. Thanks.
