Abstract:

The purpose of this evaluation was to determine the capability of Army of the Republic of Vietnam ARVN artillery to support sector operations, regular operations, and hamlets, villages, and outposts. Although the evaluation was conducted primarily in II and III Corps and the 7th Division area of IV Corps, separate questionnaires were completed by both ARVN artillery commanders and their US advisors in all TOE artillery units in the Rupublic of Vietnam RVN. Forms were used to collect data on ammunition expenditures, missions fired, and operations conducted. Four provinces were chosen for detailed analysis of artillery effectiveness. In no case was a mission fired solely for the purpose of the evaluation. Only those missions were analyzed in which data were recorded with accuracy. Author
