Does anyone have good videos which visualize the range of artillery?

Does anyone have good videos which visualize the range of artillery? Like firing "tracers" in the dark or something similar.

            I'm a 5. What's scary about me?

            I only learned a few years ago that other people can apparently actually see visions and halucinations like in the movies. It's like

            I went down the rabbit hole a bit and you can find forums full of them talkimg about how everyone else in insane because they "see thinks that aren't there".

            said, the hallucinators are actually scary.

      It is very important to visualize this.
      Also it has to be visualized as a video, not as an image. Preferably in a video with a reaction face thumbnail.

      >good videos
      Oh, sorry. There should be multiple videos. One is not enough.

      Tracers don't really exist on arty/mortars, because they don't need to exist(i.e. the fire control group and team know where they're going to go).
      The most you'll see if the landing or arty/mortars from camera-on-target views.

      dubs of truth

      That actually sounds cool as frick. Though I can understand why nobody has done it, because people in this industry are just pragmatic.

      >pragmatic
      homie almost every arty/spg release in the past 2 decades gets a shiny 3d/cg vid showing distance and accuracy of their munitions trying to market themselves. Tracers are legitimately useless on Arty/SPGs/Mortars, it's not about being pragmatic, it's there's no purpose for it and it's additional time/cost.

        Yeah but couldn't you like just make one? Surely it can't be that difficult.

    How is a tracer supposed to work in a range of dozens of km?
    Even rocket assisted shells are going to be hard to see.

      Anon, these are the same people who can't visualize things in their head like normal people can, you really expect them to think about what happens AFTER you create one like this anon is asking

      Yeah but couldn't you like just make one? Surely it can't be that difficult.

      .
      It doesn't work, period, even with the best binos you can afford you're not spotting a tracer(that has probably already burned out) on a very sharp down angle 20km+ out regardless.
      There's a reason arty tracers don't exist.

        Wtf? There's people who can't visualize an object in their heads? Are they same people who don't have an inner monologue? Imagine having both, just no original or authentic thoughts of your own

            Anon, there are people who are genuinely NPCs, they cannot visualize or imagine complex issues or thought. Like they genuinely can only regurgitate what they've been told.

            Yeah I just read up on it as well. Its called Aphantasia. There are literal npcs out there.

        There are star shells intended for battlefield illumination but those eject the actual flare and leave it dangling on a chute.

    Look up the range of a system and go on Google maps and measure a distance on an area you know.
    For example Ceasar has a basic range of 25 miles, so you can shell the center of York from the middle of Leeds.

    Rocket Assisted Projectile and 'base-bleed' shells have their engines visible in the dark. here's a cool video of that.

      This is such a wild video. Shows how different a conflict like the one in UKR is vs a conflict with an actual first world power involved. Even if we were just deleting a couple of sand fiefdoms.

      wouldn't that be a liability and really help enemy counter battery fire

        any counter-battery would sit an additional arty range opposite of that stream. do you think you can just eyeball a range between 30 and 40km?

    Just open up a Google Maps 3D view of a place you know, pick a spot you're especially familiar with and then use the distance measuring tool to see where the shells would land at max range.
    Protip: it's a lot further than you'd think.
