That's a light 105mm gun I wish we had in the Canadian Army.

So what are all those saplings?
I'm guessing they are used as tent poles for some kind of shelter?

More likely poles for the camouflage net, as proper cam net poles would be a pain to parachute drop. Much simpler to improvise.

Unless you're being dropped in a desert zone...? Iraq, or Afghanistan perhaps?
Surely the army could come up with some poles that break into smaller sections for the task?
After all, you are dropping a huge cannon!

I am quite positive that those are cam net poles, and not meant as tent poles. The bell tents used by the British Army are similar to those of the Canadian Army and use only a single, collapsible central pole, usually made of a magnesium alloy. it is much sturdier than any of those branches, none of which could support a tent, but all of which could serve to support the corners of a cam net, or in the case of the longest one, the center of the net which always uses a longer pole. We frequently used a long branch also as a central cam net pole in the towed artillery units of the Canadian army.
