A cool short clip from a recent Greece-USA exercise here in Greece.
Just thought to share it. Not my video.

Nice video.

But geez, the US HMMWVs stick out like a sore thumb with that desert paint.

This is another video, artillery Greek units only.
Different event.
My question is, what's the "plow" doing in 0:35 ? I have never seen anything like this attached to an artillery unit before, at least not in the front. Is it even a plow?

Plough on front - probably used to dig in, could be used to clear routes when deploying off-road (e.g. of fallen trees?). Same as for the S-tank, etc. Maybe its to level off a firing platform that is too bumpy.

Only one has it - so whatever use it is specialist (leads columns and clears debris?), or maybe just for trials?.

It's most probably not a recoil buffer like tube artillery rear spades - rockets dont have recoil to abate. And these things offload them to the flank anyhow.

Thinking as Andy said... a specialized unit available if clearing an obstacle is needed

Nice video!

This looks to me to be the RM-70 MLRS which, according to wikipedia, can be provided with a snow plough SSP 1000 or a dozer blade BZ-T to arrange its own emplacement or to remove obstacles.

ok, out of pure luck, a video was suggested to me by youtube. 3rd party edit.
At 0:13 you can see the same thing, only on more than one of them. This is an older video from 2017.
