Artillery range question.

Recommended Posts

Is there a reference anywhere for the range of in-game artillery/field guns? I would like to know how far they should be placed from target areas and still be effective.

Probably infinite, since there is no actuall shell coming out of the artillery guns (I drove my tank infront of the muzzle when they fired. Nothing happened)

That kind of makes sense. Considering they are simply made for aircraft to destroy. That would mean you would need an arty battery and a barrage of shells landing separately when making a mission.

I made a simple mission where a tank drives towards an artillery piece. They start shooting around 1800m some of the time. I only tested 3 different field guns.

For anyone interested in mission building and the range of in game artillery pieces, I made a quick list for reference. But because the artillery ranges would sometimes change from one trial to the next, I am including the mission file used in case anyone wants to check for themselves. Line-of-sight to the target affects the behavior of artillery. If the target drops out of sight behind a hill, the artillery stops and restarts when the target comes into view again. I recorded the shortest distance each gun fired with a direct line of sight. 

 

Note: The plane in the mission does not follow the simple way point pattern and I cannot find the reason why.
