Since the days of Napoleon, field artillery has proven a pivotal part of ground warfare - a tradition that continues today.

OVERVIEW



Since the days of Napoleon, the mobile artillery piece has been utilized to deadly effect. Artillery became the focal point of many-an-offensive during the days of World War 1 and World War 2 and, since then, base accuracy, range and construction materials have been considerably improved to the point that many world powers can field some type of excellent 155mm field gun design to support infantry and armored force actions. Systems on order (heading into the next year) are not taken into account.
