Hello,
in the 18.7 rule is written:

..An artillery unit may be used during the beach landing phases if
it is within range, and from the units listed on the chart below.
Location Artillery
Utah Beach: 1709, Brecourt
Omaha Beach: Pt du Hoc, 352nd
Gold Beach: 716/1716
Juno Beach: 716/1716
Sword Beach: 716/1716
Inland (vs. Parachute Units) Same Div. as spotter
These artillery units may be used at the listed beach with a spot-ter.

1709 or 1716 What does it mean?

Thank you

1709 and 1716 stand for the artillery regiments of the 709 and 716th Divisions. So, units of the 352 may fire on Omaha Beach.

Hi,
This means that the units around omaha beach can use point du hoc artillery and or 352^ artillery and vs. utah beach, with NO 709^ artillery battalion counters(*), brecourt artillery (6/AR 191 (105mm))only, because the 709^ static artillery is too far from the beach; is deployed around cherbourgh)?

(*)..because 1709/1716 are artillery optional in the scenario book rule and I decided to start without the Artillery battalion counters:
709
I / 1709 Art Abt (105mm) . . . . . A1738 . . . . . . . (Optional)
II / 1709 Art Abt (155mm) . . . . . A1830 . . . . . . . (Optional)
III/ 1709 Art Abt (76mm) .. . . . A4212 . . . . . . . (Optional)
716
I / 1716 Art Abt (100mm) . . . . . C2616 . . . . . . . . (Optional)
II /1716 Art Abt (100mm) . . . . . C2230 . . . . .. (Optional)
III/1716 Art Abt (155mm) . . . . B1611 . . . . . .. . (Optional)

Thank you

ps sorry for my English
