Does the krasnopol round work?

Recommended Posts

US precision round is GPS-guided, Russian is laser guided. I haven't played much with artillery much but I believe use of the Russian round depends of the spotters ability to paint the target with a laser spot.

Yes, you need LOS and have a lazer designator to use precision rounds and they only come with the 152mm and 122mm artillery and 120mm mortars.

 

Yes, I have used it unsuccessfully against M1A2s in that same battle as their laser warning sensor alerted them and they displaced to outside of my LOS before the impact.

Schmoly War,

 

Since I only belatedly realized I'd misunderstood your question, I'm going to go with that. I just posted a link in the Smel'chak thread giving the rundown on the Krasnopol, how it works (not quite the way even I thought), scale of ammo issue and more.

 

Regards,

Ah, yeah that is a pain point.  I have used it to take out a M1s before (out of the battle at least).  But if they can slip away then you are out of luck for sure.

For Russian FOs they have to have a lazer designator, you have to have a 120mm mortar or 122mm or 152mm artillery (they are the only ones with precision rounds), you have to pick Point target and then Precision should show as an option in the list of Heavy, Medium, Light etc.
