I can't read it either, but the third page shows two U.S.-designed howitzers, the M-110 and M-109.

We have a lot of the early version of the M-110s at various Veteran's Memorials in my area.

We went for a drive this afternoon and shot these pictures of two M-110s less than forty miles from home. The first two pictures are of one gun and the other two are from another location.

Most of these guns I've seen on display have the spades stowed in the raised position, but these two near us have them lowered. Each of the display machines I've seen also have the long barrel with muzzle brake.
