Oh - the other thing about having a core off-map arty unit is that after they have gained much experience they become ace counter-battery boys.

My core arty battery if provided with a decent-ranged piece will often stay silent in reserve waiting to splat enemy off map firers for most of the battle. I only plot them for on-map fires when the enemy off-map dies down, or if I spot a concentration of on-map arty that needs immediate attention, like Katyushas.

Once they have got up to about 80+ experience and 10+ kills, its a nice little specialisation for them. Remember that in war, 50% or more of all the arty's fire missions were counter-battery fires.
