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.
