This howitzer is manufactured at Rock Island Arsenal. Mandus Group and Rock Island Arsenal are handling overhaul and refurbishment of howitzers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. The M198 howitzer is being replaced by the M777 155mm howitzer which is manufactured by BAE Systems. The M777 is lighter than the M198 making it easier to transport.
