  • Firing Artillery

    Its actually quite accurate if you know how to read the lines it gives you. Take the m119 for instance:

    The line it shows you has 1000m . 0m . -1000m, this is the HEIGHT relative to your height. If you are at or near sea level, AWESOME, dont need to figure anything out. So, if your target is 250 m higher than you are, look at the 10 lines between 0m and 1000m, find the 2nd one closest to 0m and halfway to the third. Thats where the shell is going to land SPOT ON.

    The numbers on the other side of the height meters are the flight time. So if it says 50 seconds, take out your watch and warn your team of splash something like 35 - 40 seconds after firing.

    I hope this helps those who just fired haphazardly hoping to hit something.

    Its very accurate if you know what you are doing.

    Your artillery sight looks more or less like the above when you bring up the Target Artillery option in the menu, right? (There's usually numbers on either side of the horizontal lines denoting the seconds between shot and splash)

    I just aim for the middle (the bolded red one) crosshair section and it hits every time. The number of seconds you should read off to your team for splash should be the numbers next to the middle section.

      What Bellicosity is trying to illustrate is that if your altitude differs from the target's, you'll make use of the top and bottom lines to calibrate your shot appropriately. For example, were you to fire artillery from a mountain range into Chernogorsk beach, you'd have to aim further to the bottom line.

        Exactly Scope, and thats the issue many people face. They figure that if they aim for the middle they will hit spot on. That is not the case
