The first sentence of the SSR permits, “direct fire with all To Hit (C3.3) calculations made as if the shot originated from the Observer’s hex…”
The second sentence begins, “The howitzer sets up offboard but LOS and range are determined as if at Level 3 in a north-edge hex secretly selected at setup…”
The second sentence continues, “ …. and may also fire without the Observer using the Area Target Type (C3.33).”
Final sentence concludes, “The 105 … is never subject to Case A TH DRM (C5.1)”

Question 1: Does the phrase, “LOS and range are determined” apply to direct fire directed by the Observer? If no, go to Question 4.

Question 2: If “Yes,” to Question 1, must both the Gun and the Observer have LOS to a target to permit direct fire?

Question 3: If “No” to Question 2, is the Basic TH# determined by the Observer’s range to target, or the Gun’s?

Question 4: For Area Target Type shots, are all To Hit calculations (excluding application of Case A) made as if the shot originated from the Gun’s hex (for example, Case N)?

Question 5: If “Yes,” to Question 4, does C6.52 (Bracketing) apply when changing from Area Fire to direct fire and vice versa?

From the selected north-edge hex.
