Abstract

Throughout history, the mission of the field artillery was to destroy, neutralize, or suppress the enemy with cannon, rocket, or missile fires and to integrate all fire support assets into the combined arms operations. Field Artillery has inflicted more casualties than any other weapon system on post-XIX-th century battlefields. More recently, field artillery proved its role on the battlefield în the Operations Desert Storm, Iraqi Freedom and Enduring
Freedom în Afghanistan, not to mention currently în Ukraine, where around 80 % of casualties are artillery related.
