60mm Guns and Radar

The stretcher team stands by in case of an injury. Artillery has many moving parts, and just moving the heavy shells around can cause an injured back, or a dropped shell can crush a foot.

New radar systems permit the tracking of artillery shells. This can permit correction of fires even when the shells cannot be tracked visually.

The chaplain participates in the training. Since God is on our side, it is only right that his representative go with us into the field.

The Captain oversees the training. His binoculars allow him to view the results of the firing.

The radar can also be used to track enemy artillery. The data can then be used to target the enemy artillery positions.
