      • Why the low elevation of the guns? Are the targets relatively close?

        • When firing artillery or mortars it is always best to fire at the lowest angle possible.

          I was taught there are 2 reasons for this.

          1. Lower muzzle angle = lower height of flight of the projectile = a lower ability for th eenemy counterfire radars from picking up on the source fo the rounds.

          2. At lower angle, particulalry on artillery, the recoil systems are more efficient the lower the angle, distributing the force into the spades and recoil system rather than into the firing table.

          And actually, the nearer the range, usually means the higher the elevation of the tube....you are lobbing the rounds in front of you.

            I had an Army Major, who made LTC while there, assigned to me on the Joint Staff. An Artillery officer, I used to enjoy his stories of firing counterbattery at the Iraqis who apparently either never were taught or chose not to learn your first point. He said they rarely had to fire more than one or two rounds to settle things. :wors:

            • Artillery fire is one more of those situations in life where it is far better to give than to receive. That being the case it also helps if you train till you drop so that when you do eventually go into combat and have to initiate a fire mission for real you've also learned to haul ass out of your old position ASAP.
              If you are emotionally invested in 'believing' something is true you have lost the ability to tell if it is true.
