Use Of AAA Radar To Spot Ground Targets For Field Artillery - NWE 1944 & 1945

Post by Richard Stone » 23 Oct 2021 18:49

The 3 attached reports discuss the US Army use of anti-aircraft radar to identify ground targets for field artillery units. This method was used in the NWE campaign in the late 1944 period and continued into 1945. The original reports were printed in the US Army Combat Lessons & Notes documents for use of the combat units and the Army higher headquarters.

I will place a duplicate of this post in this website's section ‘USA 1919 - 1945' shortly.

The 2 attached reports provide further information about the US Army use of anti-aircraft radar to identify ground targets for field artillery units. This method was used in the NWE campaign in the late 1944 period and continued into 1945. The original reports were printed in the US Army Combat Lessons & Notes documents for use of the combat units and the Army higher headquarters.

The last report, which I’ve placed in the following post, discusses the first use of radar in late 1944.
