In mid- or late 1944, particular Allied arty and a range of TD units (towed and tracked) increasingly performed unobserved fire missions, for interdiction/harrassment, which added to the missions aiming at locations - (daily) AARs of U.S. TD units (towed and tracked) are packed with descriptions of such fire missions.
The section quoted above is a part of one of my posts in the "seek and destroy" thread.
I suggest to add a bombard capability for US TDs (tracked and towed). Starting around mid-1944 (or even late 1943 or early '44, in Italy?), such units performed indirect-fire missions with HE rounds for interdiction or harrassment, the number increased to a level where then in autumn 1944 daily US TD unit AARs were filled with a myriad of such mission descriptions, eventually. The bombard capability should not able to answer to arty fire calls, but the user should be able to use them for interdiction/spamming manually, imho.
Background: the fast push through France and the loss of a vital amount of tanks and armored vehicles on the German side led to a situation where US (or Allied) TD units had a hard time to find any armored target, so their COs (or maybe even the higher echelons) ordered to employ such units in a bombardment role when they were "unemployed", purely for the lack of targets and as they would have been idle/useless, otherwise. Allied AA units experienced the same lack of targets, where then at least British AA units (who were not allowed to install the particular aiming devices for arty missions until very late 1944) seem to have been employed in a bombardment role starting around early 1945 locally, as well, eventually. I could imagine that British TD units also joined US TD units in their interdiction/harrassment roles, eventually, but that would be subject to research.
Anyway, I think a bombardment capability of the mentioned TD and (British) AA units would be historically and technically accurate and maybe it could be linked to a particular time frame (say starting in early or mid-1944 for US TD units, early 1945 for British AA units) in the game.
What do you think?
