Mobile Artillery

We supported infantry and mechanized operations from Fire Support Bases but also did day trips (fireballs) when operations were planned beyond the range of our guns at the current location . We could rapidly move guns with a bare bones set-up to support units in a long lasting firefight. We were very vulnerable to attack when we set up this place as every man in the battery was involved shooting our howitzers and not much time and attention was given to our perimeter security.
