Abstract:

Tremendous changes in the threat and world politics in the early 1990s dictate that issues surrounding our Fire Support systems and structure be critically examined to ensure they can continue to meet our worldwide contingencies. This study will examine the current application of Fire Support within the U.S. Army and recommend doctrinal and structural issues needing resolution to facilitate successful future evolution. Modern technology, geopolitical conditions, and evolving doctrine of AirLand Battle-Future indicate broadening roles and changing emphasis for Fire Support. At the same time, our Army will undergo substantial reductions in size and funds. The proper reshaping of our Fire Support capabilities--while maintaining their viability, expandability, and lethality--is the Field Artillerys greatest challenge.
