How to use artillery

This is the artillery menu. From the top to the bottom:

  1. The shell you have loaded
  2. How far you are aiming to hit
  3. The deviation to the right/left of the shell (from your character’s point of view)

image

To have a higher chance of success at firing artillery shells on your enemies’ territory, it’s best if you have a telescope in hand. Or even better yet, a “spotter” to have their telescope always on the target, telling you where to aim while you control the artillery.

Each tile further means you’ll have to add the value of “1” to the distance. If you want to hit 45 tiles away, you must aim for “45” distance.*

image

The sway is the “deviation” or just sway, that the shell will be affected by. If you fire from coordinates that aren’t exactly aligned with your enemy, you can use these to move your shell left-to-right instead of moving the artillery.

image

You will need to load a shell before firing, you can clearly see if there’s one by checking the panel.

image

There are many kinds of shells, like chlorine shells, zyklon B shells, white phosphorus shells, makeshift nuclear shells and many more, but let’s see these more simple examples.

image This is a High-Explosive shell, it will create a big explosion where it lands, spreading fire along. Great if your enemy has houses made out of wood or if there’s grass around.

image This is an Armor-Piercing shell, it will pierce through the armour of tanks.

All the other shells are:

Chlorine Designed to cause overexposure to the chlorine element, it causes respiratory system failure and severe nose and throat irritation
Mustard A man-made agent which causes chemical burning of the skin, eyes, and throat., very nasty stuff.
Phosgene A far more potent and well disguised cousin of chlorine gas, it has a slightly delayed but otherwise identical effect.
White Phosphorus A type of pyrophoric incendiary munition, it ignites air creating a large smoke cloud. Temperatures high enough to cause fourth degree burns to anyone unfortunate enough to be in direct contact.
Xylyl Bromide Primarily used as a "tear gas" type agent. Stereotypical respiratory pain and eye, skin, and throat irritations. Not heavily lethal, however.
Zyklon B Cyanide-based pesticide, it impedes upon cellular respiration. In simpler words it 'deactivates' the entire human body within minutes post-inhalation.
APCR A shell designed with a hard metal penetrating core, it has extreme penetrative force made to wound tank crews and disable vehicle components.
AP A steel alloy shell designed to survive the shock of direct hits against metal armor and continue going. Not exactly fancy but it works.
HE A shell designed to inflict as much concussive explosive force as possible, applications include destruction of fortifications or direct anti-personnel usages.
Makeshift Nuclear A shell designed to irradiate a large area for long periods of time.
