    Did you check to see if there was a king pin collar on the trailer so no one could back up under it.

    I would say that dropping that load in an unsecured area could not only get a driver fired but also a cellmate in Levenworth that would rub him like a lamp and call him Genie.

    I'd hate to have to call dispatch and say "Hey Earl....you remember that BFG I pulled out of the yard yesterday???...Well you ain't gonna beleive this chit......."

    jodies takin it like hes takin yer girl

    i hope 1) nobody stole it, and
    2) someone got their ass chewed/ fired for leaving a ****ing cannon all by its lonesome.

    not only is that an expensive piece of firepower, its a god**** cannon...

    that driver shoulda called somebody to guard it or at least keep an eye on it while hes gettin his truck fixed/eating dinner/blown?!

Notice that in the "compressed configuration" the muzzle hangs beyond the lunette and would prevent towing with a duece, 5-ton, or anything else with a tailgate or box overhanging the pintle hook.

    These are just observations.... and presumptions... Any confirmation or counterpoints out there ? ? ? ?

    Judging by the information at the link Maynard83 posted, the barrel is in the storage configuration. For towing and firing, the barrel must face forward.

    To be honest, if I had driven up and saw that, I'd probably call local law enforcement. It is too easy to steel that trailer. A collar around the king pin can be broken by backing into the trailer a few times. I can't imagine the military would tolerate that gun being left unguarded.

    Maybe it was won on GL. Waiting for the owner to come pick it up. I bet the paperwork is signed for, just go get it.

    It needs an "EUC required" sticker on it.
