Techniques for Modelling Artillery Fire Support Against Point and Area Targets

  • G. Schroeter


Considering the effectiveness of artillery fire support we distinguish between
  • direct effects of the fire (achieved by destruction), and

  • indirect effectiveness of the fire. In this context we consider the suppression of an enemy unit without necessarily causing severe losses (e.g.: suppression of personnel), or giving other friendly weapons a better chance (e.g.: support of a defending unit with remotely delivered mines against a tank unit).
