Subject: On: new Arty shells

I thought the IR illumination round was already available... The course-correction by radio command method is already used by an israeli development for MRL ammo - this method needs some form of tracking and in practice only eliminates the self-destructing first rocket which was usually launched to determine the wind effects.

We have IR mortar rnds, why not rocket. This could be sphincter talk, but I thought some of the new (tested) rockets were self-correcting with GPS.
