Participants of Northern Strike operate in a multi-domain, combined joint environment to improve their Joint All-Domain Command and control capabilities by integrating legacy and modern equipment with future innovation.
The M119A3 howitzer is an advanced version with a digital fire control system that allows soldiers to initiate firing and avoid return fire quicker. It is equipped with a GPS-aided inertial navigation unit (INU). The howitzer is also installed with guided-precision system technology which allows it to discover its own geographical location.
