The report jars your insides. Everyone knows a 105mm Howitzer is loud, but the wave of overpressure stuns mind and body. As you recover, you see the breech slam closed and the Section Chief’s sabre tip drops slowly.

230 people cheer the last shot. Together with the gun, they’re shouting, “play ball!” in a distinctly gun-friendly way.
