The M109 Family of Vehicles FOV 155-millimeter 39-caliber Self-Propelled Howitzer SPH provides the primary indirect fire support for full spectrum operations. It has the ability to support Armored Brigade Combat Teams, Infantry Brigade Combat Teams, and Stryker Brigade Combat Teams. The M109 FOV Carrier Ammunition Tracked CAT provides armored ammunition supply support to the SPH operating in support of full spectrum operations. The M109A6 Paladin and the M992A2 Field Artillery Ammunition Support Vehicle FAASV are the currently fielded versions of the Armys SPH and CAT. The Paladin Integrated Management PIM SPH and CAT will replace the M109A6 Paladin and M992A2 FAASV. The PIM program allows growth for improved force protection and technology insertion. PIM buys-back lost performance in the M109 FOV by addressing size, weight, and power issues. The program helps to ensure greater vehicle supportability, maintainability, and interoperability by leveraging fleet commonality for key components, replacing aging and obsolete components, and leveraging Bradley and Non-Line-of-Sight Cannon technology.
