    A question for the CP techs/CP Supr/Tech WO's

    MAPS=manual artillery plotting system UCR eh... I think I might do that. Cp supr hat off, qm hat on!

    A question for the CP techs/CP Supr/Tech WO's

    Well, as most of us know. The backup to IFCCS, is another IFCCS, then MAPS, or at least that's what's taught nowadays.

    C3 105mm EFC Reference

    Does anyone know where I could find a specific reference for EFC's? I.e. Chg1=.25 and Chg7=1 . I've been hearing conflicting information and no one seems to be able to give me a clear answer. I swear I saw it in some publication somewhere....can't find it again though.

    C3 Grounding

    In Shilo during WD11, there were 4 guns inspected right off the bat. As they passed, the one's we were dry training with were rotated out. We had at least 4 Serviceable guns to shoot. I believe they were all the ATG's guns, however I do know that 1 sent from 20 Fd passed as well as the 1 sent...

    The CF Principles of Leadership and the Principles of War
