Precision munitions and moving vehicles

Hello @all.

I do have a question about aiming with precision arti ammo at a vehicle that first stood still and then starts to move.

 

Will the forward observer follow the target with the laser beam?

 

Thanks

In the very few instances that have experience that IIRC it does follow.  IIRC regular arty will as well if focused on a unit (as opposed to area fire).  (However that may only be for modern ie CMBS games and not for WW2 era.  Not sure about that.)

The shot answer is yes. There are limitations on who perfect the rounds will come in. My experience is that if the vehicle moves and stops and the observer has eyes on in both locations the rounds will hit their target as well as if it never moved. If the vehicle is still moving when the rounds come in there is more uncertainty.
