>From the list:
The only solution to the problem of counter-battery fire would be to
rocket projectiles that deliberately maneuver in their launch phase, a
solution which requires guidance thrusters and programming for the
which removes it almost entirely from the definition of artillery
which is
ballistic in nature.

I'm sure there are other solutions. Coat arty round in stealth
material. No reflection, no doppler shift to pick up. No CBR. Have all
arty round have fins and intelligent controllers so they "random walk"
around a given trajectory making interception or backtracing
difficult. Put EW drones up that jam enemy CBR. CBR is active (there
may be passive CB systems, but they won't give you a minute firing
point fix instantly) so it could be jammed, or HARM'd by either an
arty launched strike, MRLS, or a HARM (radar homing missile - similar
to type used by US to take out AA FC) from the air.

The point Los made a long time back comes to mind: For every offense,
a defence evolves. Then a new offense. Any superiority is only for a
brief period. The only constant is that good tactics will (most often)
beat bad tactics, though some luck helps.
