Yuma Proving Ground tests M777 Howitzer
AZED-The Yuma Proving Ground is one of the largest military installations in the world.
YPG, located 25 miles northeast of Yuma conducts a wide variety of military tests from long range artillery, armored vehicles to unmanned aerial systems.
With a sunny climate, vast terrain and range facilities, it is an ideal environment for testing and training conditions year round.
The test facility is larger than the state of Rhode Island and is one of the Army’s busiest testing centers.
