Abstract:

The modern battlefield has created a need for new artillery tactics and equipment. The need to fight a sustained battle in a nuclear, biological andor chemical NBC environment while maintaining high mobility is a substantial challenge. New HELP and DSWS Self Propelled Howitzer SPH configurations, combined with laser rangefinders and computers promise significant increases in artillery effectiveness and efficiency. Revised tactics and equipment dictate new artillery training requirements. Digital data, on-board navigation and automatic fire control systems are now included in the primary operating modes. The responsibilities and technical capabilities of personnel are changing. The challenge is to provide effective training from individualized classroom instruction through integrated live fire exercises. Author
