A full-on ballistic shot. Almost straight up and down.
I’ll bet that gun was cranked as high as it would go,
plus put blocks under the wheels for more lift,
to more than 80 degrees vertical.

It was at long range, close to the maximum probably,
so most likely no, it must have been closer to 45 degrees.
But that math is done by computers now. In Ukraine
computers shoot artillery. An operator gets coordinates
from command network, places proper munition and marks
ready. The rest is done by computer…
The command network chooses artillery units in range of
target and manages them, so shots fired from different
locations can land at target simultaneously.
That’s one of the reasons Russians have problems with
counter artillery strikes. There’s no single battery of
guns firing, the shots come from various directions at
the same time.

They use computers because they can do the math a lot faster
than a human, I’m sure any all have to know how to do the math,
this is faster and less chance likely a man making a mistake
due to exhaustion or stress (both during a battle? Noway,
uh huh, nope can’t happen… Right? HEH)

Humans can do analog computations in their head faster than they can enter the numbers into a computer.
But this is only accurate when they are using that speed to continuously correct their estimate, as in catching a ball.
Otherwise, almost anyone’s intuitive analog ballistics is close enough for a hand grenade. Some can do
considerably better with enough practice; think of Billy Dixon’s 1500 yard shot at Adobe Wells, with a black powder
50-90 cartridge and without a scope or even sights that would elevate far enough for this shot. He said he got
lucky, but that was only possible because he figured the shot much closer than most men could.
On the other hand, I don’t think anyone could do this for artillery at a range of several miles and come close
enough to destroy an armored vehicle. That much precision requires measurements, numbers, and digital calculations.

it’s called a ‘plunging shot’. it is used when a
target is behind cover or intervening terrain.
it was originally used on warships to hit the
thinner deck armor..
and yes, 45 degrees is the maximum ‘range’,
not accuracy..

I was thinking “shielded by the second ridge”, and “plunging shot”.
Yes 45 deg is longest range, but higher angles are needed to get into
slots and tight spots.

When I wrecked that car I was ejected out and was air-borne long
enough to know it, that and landing roughly 30 ft from the car on
the pavement. Check my work here, I guesstimate I was in the air
3-4 seconds, 30 ft away, so I estimate I went 50 ft in the air. Not
quite straight up, but close enough for me to have forward momentum.
That distance away might be off because I landed on my right foot,
flipped onto my right side and slid on the right side of my face. I
have road-rash scars to prove that.

There’s “calculations” humans have traditionally

been way better at than computers.

Like everything involving playing ball

or throwing things at other things.

Or evaluating situations.

Maybe AI will become good enough to out perform us

on these things too, one day. Personally I believe

we’re still far far away from that point.
