Golly it cool, was just joking mate.yeah...in here the artillery is basicly a midd section between 'security classes' in school and prison...and way too often I hear the expression dum, dummer, gunner...
But people in military forums tend to forget that not all military is beeing fighter pilot or some SAS member. Artillery still is the main factor of any conventional land war, in terms of destroying the enemy. Infantry just advances and controll the area after artillery (and in some occasion, air support) have crushed the enemies moral backbone.
Hey not just SAS, any SF and infanty should value their artillery boyz. We move in to control stuff, but our real firepower come from the artillery and air support without them we have little if any chance of winning a fight.
Well in modern warfare, the infanty usually move in frist then call on for pin point fire support from the artillery. As wide area artillery strike normally cause to much collateral damage which is normally unacceptable in modern low intensive warfare.
