Hi everyone! biggrin
Even though I'm just a Private to the game but I still like it!!  thumbup
Okay, now for the topic, I like being the Artillerymen in both BF42 and FHSW.
Now the problem comes up. When for example you're playing any desert map. ('Cause it's perfect to perform a barrage)

The flat hill is the location of your artillery. The convoy is your target then using the knife you measure
the distance between you and the target. The convoy will be about more than -20 degrees (i'm not sure) from your horizon.
Then the tank fits the 325 M bar (for example and we chose the tank 'cause it's obviously big) then you fire
the artillery with that number. But unfortunately it either overshoots or undershoots.
So, is there any solution to this? Sorry for the very very very long text.

Forget about your range finding tools and trigonometry tables and whatever... and just get a feel for it. Remember that when you are shooting away from the horizon (either up or down) the trajectory will be flatter. Thus you would need to get your crosshairs a little closer to the target. Why bother with conscious math calculations when you can simply fire by feel, or by guess, watch where your shot goes and then correct accordingly?

Do the distance markers on artillery guns actually work? I thought they were just for looks like the tank sights.

Sneak behind it or set up an ambush and fire from < 10 meters distance is the only thing I can think of.

Hi
The way of accurate shooting using mortar-like guns had been already explained in this tutorial, point 2. I'm assuming you already have studied it?

My mental arithmetic is so weak like it's level 0.001.
I still need a paper to calculate though.

EDIT: The knee mortar is the Type 89 grenade discharger
