I am going to model one of these teams and I want to get it right. I think I have the numbers, but one of the details is how they operated. Did they observe targets and pass locations to the guns for their command posts to calculate the firing information i.e. bearing and elevation? Or did they do those calculations themselves as the Russians did? It is a detailed point but it will direct what equipment the figures will carry.
