Counter Fire! is a competitive wargame designed to train artillery leaders and staff in tactical fire direction and visualization of United States Army artillery battalion operations. The composite artillery battalion is a battalion of two M119A3 and one M777A2 batteries supported by a forward support company and a headquarters battery. Its mission is to provide fire support for the Infantry Brigade Combat Team. The game can be played by two players or more on two teams. The players fill the role of the artillery battalion commander and make decisions on what maneuver operations to support while balancing survival of the battalion and counterfire operations.
