Abstract:

Field artillery operations and fire support decisions are examined. The history of the development of artillery fire support systems is reviewed in order to provide insight into artillery missions. Standard tactical missions are identified and analyzed as well as fire planning and fire support coordination. A specific scenario is analyzed in detail with respect to the fire support decision process. The study provides background information for the construction of more realistic artillery models for use in a modern combined arms combat simulation.
