View Full Version : ATF: Artillery Ordnance?
February 22nd, 2004, 03:27 AM
I just started playing the demo. I'm not sure which artillery ordnance to use for different targets. Is there a guide or description available somewhere?
Also, is there a list of acronyms?
I have checked some of the information at Warfare HQ Wargamers Club, but haven't found this information there.

There is an exhaustive list of acronyms in the printed manual. Also, on the CD, there is a pdf Version of the FM 101-5-1, the Army's dictionary for acronyms and terms. You can get it straight from the Army at:
As for artillery ordinance, the help file (hit F1 during game play) covers the basics, but here is a short list:
DPICM-An artillery round with small submunitions inside. Good for armor or dismounts.
HE-High explosive. Good for dismounts.
BBDPICM (Base Burn Dual Purpose Improved Conventional Munitions)-A long range DPICM round.
HERAP (High Explosive Rocket-Assisted Projectile)-Long range HE.
Copperhead/PGM-Laser guided artillery. Requires a FIST-V, OH-58D, or COLT within 3-5 km of the target to lase.
Hope this helps. Let me know if you have anymore questions.

Patrick: Thanks for the great link and the ordnance info. I also read the threads with discussions of how to succeed in the Death Valley assault scenario and that was helpful.
I'm strongly considering buying this game...
