Fire Support: Priority Targets and Priority Missions

Recommended Posts

The document that you copied the the Tabular orbat from has a comprehensive list of units listed in text. The orbat that you posted is inaccurate in that both 4th and 7th Armoured Brigades were "Armoured" and not Armoured Inf/Mech Brigades. As well as the fact that a whole  Armoured Battlegroup, The Queen's Royal Irish Hussars is missing from 7th Armoured Brigade.

as an example, its not bad, but still inaccurate!!!

Some relevant tables for deeper context and perhaps helpful for visualizing artillery effort and organization in Desert Storm and late Cold War themed missions:


1st Infantry Division Artillery Order of Battle for Preparatory fires in support of the Breach:



1st Infantry Division Artillery order of Battle, for Pursuit subsequent of the Breach:



Ammunition Expenditures, 1st Infantry Division Artillery through all phases including Raids, Prep, and Breach+ Pursuit:



BDA 1st Infantry Division Artillery:




Additional notes:

1) No 1ID division artillery units were left in reserve (meaning no artillery assigned to support combat units kept in the reserve either).

2) 1ID advanced with 2 Brigades up and 1 Brigade in reserve. Whilst a Brigade was in reserve, its DS FA Btln were assigned GS to the 2 front advancing Brigades.
