The SCat Gun System is comprised of a 155 mm Howitzer weapon with a M199 gun tube and 540 feet of catch tubes. This is a hybrid system that uses both pressurized air and water to help slow down the projectile's momentum. This system at Picatinny Arsenal, N.J., is the only system of its kind in the world.
