One thing about the DS3 system...
Off-board artillery is defined as being in a zone. Something like:
[ -5 ] [ -4 ] [ -3 ] [ -2 ] [ -1 ] [ TABLE ] [ 1 ] [ 2 ] ...
It takes a full Tactical Combat Round (the fighting part of a DS3 turn)
to cross from one zone to another. Thus, if your Off-Table artillery is
in zone -4 the target will get a few combat moves before the rounds
land. Then again, the rounds could have trajectory correction, etc., to
keep 'em on target.
Just so that you are aware that there could be some issues with "want
something dead right bloddy now." :)
