Sure you're right on the above points. Often the enemys arty isn't within
range of yours, but fliers can ba a problem, but then Chaos do have some
of the bet interceptors in the game and you can always bring some flak.
The Chaos arty have range 90cm. How does each BM take out 1/6 of your FP?
There is always dessision about prep. bombardment, but then the enemy have
the same problem. And splitting up the arty in two or thrww detachments
helps conciderbly when it comes to BM's and spreading your fire. And you
can then give then different orders too.

Just some more oppinions...
