On my way  home today I happened to see one of the new replacement trucks for the MLVW ( not sure of the new name) towing a trailer, a quick glance as it was going the other direction. I saw what  looked like small gun on the trailer. It was not a 105mm but looked more WW2 vintage from size of it, smaller than the 25 pounders seen at some bases as gate guards.
Anyone see this or know what I saw?

Well if it was not a 105mm then it was something that is out of service and there are hundreds of possabilites at that point. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
