EN Analysing tactics, the way of operating and technical capabilities of the 120 mm RAK mortars and 155 mm KRAB howitzers, one conclusion comes to mind. A proper use of the new type of equipment makes it practically indestructible since after detecting a firing unit if an enemy responds with a fire to a firing howitzer/mortar its shells hit only in the place where a few minutes before it has been located and which performed so called anti-fire manoeuvre. Moreover, fire units are dispersed to an extent (even 500 km and more from one another) that firing would be possible only to a single howitzer/mortar which is not profitable for an enemy. In order to damage a support company an enemy would have to engage disproportionately big part of its artillery risking that its fire posts could be recognized.
