The M198 155mm towed howitzer was developed (1968-1976) and produced (1978-1992) at Rock Island Arsenal. Over 1,600 howitzers were produced for the Army, Marine Corps, and allied armies. Weighing just under 16,000 pounds, it was able to be air dropped by parachute or transported by a CH-53E Super Stallion or CH-47 Chinook helicopter. During 1990 and 1991, the M198 was used by the Army and Marine Corps in Operation Desert Shield and Operation Desert Storm. Engineering support for the system was provided here at Picatinny Arsenal. It was replaced in the Army and Marine Corps by the M777 howitzer.
