The U.S. Army’s Anniston Army Depot has begun work resetting a BAE Systems-built weapons system, the Army announced Monday.
BAE built the M777 artillery system in order to replace the M198.
The Army said the M777 overhaul team learned how to weld with titanium and how to repair the Howitzer during the process.
Eric Bennett, a depot artillery repairer supervisor, said the Army is learning a lot about the M777 because of the reset program.
Tommy Morgan, from the depot’s logistics and business development office, said that the reset program is part of the Army’s move to organic support for the M777 system from BAE.
A second overhaul of the M777 will occur after two reset programs.
