Default Artillery dispersal when shooting

I was always of the opinion that artillery in SP spread out too much when impacting, even with a FOO, however I have recently read a book that reviewed the Canadians in Normandy and what they found (this study was done in Oct44) is that less then 50% of the rounds fired landed in the predicted impact zone, and less then 5% actually landed in a 100x100 foot target area. The vast majority of rounds were off for both line and depth.

So I will stop saying WTF when my barrage lands 6 hexes away.

Unfortunately as an FO in my previous life I still find the dispersion a bit "much", but I understand the need for it in the game.

Get an experienced FOO with eyes on the target hex directing experienced gun crews and the rounds will land on target well enough close to reality
