    Fire Discipline Challenge

    Some good discussion. About the book, I know it doesn't have all the answers but it can save you from a charge, or condemn you. If C/S 1 has 5 subcall signs engaged in a Fire Mission, and the ammo order in the initial sequence of orders looks like this: 50% delay in effect How many guns will...

    Marking with HE is an effective method, but I challenge you to find the book reference.

    Artillery Mortar Course

    I thought standard weight square was 98 lbs.. 104 lbs for a DPCIM. I could be wrong though.

    D30 122mm Howitzer manuals? TFTs?

    I'm wondering if anyone out there as any physical or digital copy of TFTs or manuals for the D30 122mm howitzer. Or if someone knows how I could get a hold of a copy, I'd greatly appreciate it.

    Time To Dust Off Our M109???

    Time To Dust Off Our M109???

    The LG1 is for training purposes, it won't see another deployment. We have new 777's coming enough to outfit a bty, hopefully they will be here soon. As a note, the M777 does use the M776 cannon tube, however, the A6 paladin, does not. The M776 cannon tube is actually, a slightly shaved down...
