I'm not sure this is the correct way of looking at this project.

No - you're missing the whole point.

Think of all of the PYs that will be saved, that can now be re-distributed to organizations much more important than mere Combat Arms units.

Think of all of those poor, starving headquarters.

And a prime example of how to increase productivity.

Next question.

This is three women driving a battery's worth of firepower.  Is the highest rank Bombardier (Corporal) or Major?

If it was an Air Force artillery battery it would likely be a Squadron Commander ;)
