M198 155mm Towed Howitzer Muzzle Brake

Question for the RedLegs here: When the M198 towed 155 was in towing configuration, was the muzzle brake removed, allowing the lunette on the trail leg to reach the prime moved tow pintle?

If so, was there a particular location the brake was stowed while being towed?

We did not remove it at Fort Sill.

This is what Iā€™m trying to resolve. Too much barrel, not enough towing lunette!

I have never actually seen it towed in that configuration. I have only seen it in that configuration for air movement.

It is usually towed with the barrel pointing to the rear.
