US Artillery – Fire For Effect


An artillery battery operated by U.S. Marines “fires for effect” in South Korea. Fire-For-Effect basically means the target has been acquired — cut-loose and hit it with everything you have.

U.S. Marines with Golf Battery, 2nd Battalion, 11th Marines fire for effect on a gun line April 3 at Su Seong-Ri Range in Pohang, Republic of Korea during exercise Ssang Yong 2014.
