USAHEL conducted the Rate of Fire Study to 1 measure the effects of projectile weight on rates of fire and 2 determine realistic maximum rate of fire information for the three howitzers tested. The three howitzers were the 105mm M101A1, the 155mm M114A1, and the 122mm, D-30. The data showed no degradation in firing rate over 60 round missions fired as fast as the crews could load ammunition. This was true for all weapons tested. Author
