  1. I'm curious to know what people like to bring for fire support against the computer and against humans, why you bring it, how you use it, what effects you expect to achieve, what are all the factors you consider in making your choices, SOPs.

  5. I was trying to find a list of priority US FS targets when I came across this, JP 3-09 Joint Fire Support, the "how you do it" pub on Joint fire Support for the entire US military and allies. There is much to learn here, so it's worth learning a lot of acronyms. The appendices are full of practical info on the use and limitations of various US FS systems. Grog central! This is a 2014 doc. http://www.dtic.mil/doctrine/new_pubs/jp3_09.pdf The complementary doc from 2013 is JP 3-60 Joint Targeting. This one is much easier to read, since it deals with much more concrete matters, with clear definit
  6. What is the best way the M7A3 Bradley Fire Support Vehicles should be used? So far I haven't noticed that they have any advantage over the regular units in spotting, plus they are more difficult to hide, than the small infantry teams.
