Default Re: Should NLOS systems count toward Arty overload?

Really? The British Army have them in The Royal Artillery, in units with the GMLRS and spotted for by a FOO.

In game terms they are not fired direct, but are spotted for by an FO. They are not interrupted by overwatch fire like a "traditional" ATGM and don't have to expose themselves to retaliatory fire (again, like an ATGM) but are more likely to be targeted by artillery. - Sounds much more like Artillery than ATGM to me!

Imagine a situation where your tank force is opposed by a hidden FO and a battery of NLOS Spikes hidden behind terrain - in a couple of turns you could have a smashed formation with no chance to reply...
