If xxx artillery is OOS... Can they still barrage? The rules state that they have unlimited rounds, but I am not entirely sure if this is the case if they can't trace a valid supply line?

Based on...

Out of Supply artillery that needs, and has,
ammo fires normally; artillery that does not
expend ammo cannot fire.


and...

Artillery that can trace using the XXX Corps
Supply Trace have an unlimited amount of
ammo and do not need to expend Ammo Points
when they fire.


I would say, "No".

That's the key quote isn't it? OOS artillery that needs (i.e. is yellow coded) and has ammo (i.e. there are artillery ammo points available on the points track) can fire normally.

Quote:

The second part of the first quote refers to artillery that does not expend artillery ammo, i.e. is not yellow coded, which if it is OOS cannot fire.

The second quote simply means that yellow coded artillery using XXX Corps supply trace has unlimited ammo and therefore has no requirement for artillery ammo points.

So re the original question I would say 'yes', if there are artillery ammo points available on the ammo points track.
