Ukraine News. The King of Battle is back.

I've been trying to run down Ukrainian combat losses since the chaos began and one thing is becoming apparent in the quick glance I've taken at the battlefield.

The King of Battle is back.

Rocket, cannon, and tube artillery is the biggest "life taker" in this fight.  If Ukraine is a taste of things to come then we're planning and organizing ourselves for the wrong fight.

US ground forces have not faced sustained artillery barrages since WW2.  All we've faced in the modern era is what the old timers would call harassment

If mass artillery fire is the wave of the future then we better hope that lasers make it to the battlefield sooner rather than later.  R2D2 might be able to stop a mortar or two but a barrage?
