    It's a desprate need for self presevation knowledge.
    No worries.

    Yeah you can at the very least expect shells to act identical to miniť balls when it comes to object penetration (I would however guess that it will be boosted significantly over the current 70% penetration chance that miniť balls have when, say, shooting at a fence or a wooden wall.

    Few artillery followup questions:

    - Will users have the ability to carry out multiple tasks on the artillery peices at the same time or follow a more structured step by step process approach?

    - Will 'The transport system' for artillery be introduced in The Artillery first phase or will positions be fixed locations?

    - Will anyone dozy enough to be directly behind a discharged artillery peice be affected (injured or likely killed)? Those things have a serious kickback.

    I'm really hoping to see some hilarious ragdolling, if so.

    My thoughts exactly rbsmith7, combat can get really close and you know that artillery will be targeted by infantry in melee if the reload times are fairly long. Someone is bound to get into that scenario at some stage. Just hope that we see some good clips of it on youtube when it happens.
