Can an artillery observer on a level two hill see a spotting round that lands in a jungle hex with intervening jungle hexes. Jungle is a level 2 obstacle (G2.1). Spotting rounds extend 2 levels above the base level (C1.32). An obstacle does not block los into itself (duh, A6.2). I would say the observer can see the tops of the trees, but cannot see to Level 1 because intervening jungle hexes would prevent it. Now that I've written it out, I think I know the answer :)

I just had to check before moving my OB into harms way.

Thanks,

Don Hancock

Yes, he can see the spotting round.

The way you find out, is to assume a target unit on the same level as the top-height of the spotting round, i.e. at level 2.

Since the observer at level 2 would be able to see over the level 2 jungle to a target unit on level 2, he is also able to see the SR.
