For WWII, yeah, I'll buy that.	But for DS/SG:AC, I'd have to think that
counter battery sensors and such, once you determine the area from which
the shells originate, sending a seek and destroy unit would not be out
of the question.  Grav skimmers, jet bikes, UAVs, etc., could get there
quickly and would have a much better chance to find the target than WWII
recon units would.
