The technical. Suddenly, everybody wants one. With ever increasing lethality. NO longer merely a heavy machine gun.
"This Humvee-Mounted Howitzer Is Here To 'Shoot and Scoot'"
"The Hawkeye Mobile Weapon System can fire and then move at a moment's notice."
105 mm howitzer mounted on a Hummvee! Who would have thought it! To what extent an already existing Hummvee with slight modification can act as the prime mover I am not sure.
"A new self-propelled howitzer system meets a Humvee—or a Ford F-250 pickup truck—with a 105-millimeter howitzer for an artillery system capable of rapidly moving from one firing position to another. The result is the Hawkeye,a new artillery system that can not only keep up with fast-moving friendly forces but dodge attempts by enemy forces to shut it down."
"Shoot and scoot" as described vital to battlefield survival when opposed by a sophisticated enemy.
