Illustration for article titled Lifting cannons with helicopters seems like a lot of fun

It looks like Call of Duty. It's not. It looks like a movie. It's not. Instead it's an incredible photograph of a Marine Corps Super Stallion Helicopter taking off with a M777 howitzer in the California desert. In real life. What a powerful image. The helicopter is lugging the 7,500 pound 35 foot long monster of a weapon like it's nothing.


The photo was taken by Lance Cpl. Keenan Zelazoski at Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center Twentynine Palms, California. It was part of an exercise done to prepare for deployment. Fun exercise.
