The M10 Booker MPF's primary weapon is a 105mm cannon, modeled after the American M35, accompanied by a 7.62mm machine gun positioned coaxially. This 105mm cannon is capable of firing both APDS (Armour-Piercing Discarding Sabot) and HE (High Explosive) rounds. The APDS, a spin-stabilized kinetic energy projectile designed for anti-armor combat, has a maximum range of 1.8 km, while the HE rounds can reach up to 4 km. The main cannon requires manual loading. Additionally, a 12.7mm heavy machine gun is situated on the commander's hatch, and the turret's front features two sets of four smoke grenade launchers on either side.

In terms of combat capabilities, the M10 Booker is a force to be reckoned with. Designed for both offensive and defensive operations, it can engage with enemy armor, fortifications, and infantry with equal efficacy. Its advanced targeting systems guarantee high accuracy in combat scenarios, while its unmatched speed and maneuverability allow it to swiftly evade enemy fire and reposition as needed. The vehicle's modular design also provides the flexibility to adapt to various mission profiles, from direct combat engagements to reconnaissance operations.

As for its intended missions, the U.S. Army envisions the M10 Booker playing a pivotal role in future combat scenarios. Its primary mission will be to provide robust fire support to infantry units, effectively bridging the gap between light infantry and heavy armored divisions. The vehicle's versatility also positions it as a prime choice for urban warfare, counter-insurgency operations, and rapid deployment tasks.

In conclusion, the introduction of the M10 Booker Fire Support Vehicle underscores the U.S. Army's dedication to maintaining its technological edge and combat readiness. As it begins its integration into active service, military analysts anticipate that it will become a key component of U.S. ground operations in the years to come.
