Ok, maybe I am reading this upside down or else.

But I would like someone explaining me the art of shooting with artillerie.

Is it the same with a mortar?

Thanks

Artillery has some special rules, so that is why there is a separate "Artillery" section (pages 73-78). But as for firing itself, its pretty much the same as with other units, except some artillery are capable of indirect fire if they have the Howitzer special rule. For "Howitzer", see pages 54. Which also points to "Indirect Fire" on pages 53-54. Also see "Multiple Launchers" on page 54. And of course, the "Spotters" side bar on page 54 is a must read.

Are you asking about on board artillery firing? Or off board artillery using the forward artillery observer?
Cheers

On board...

No deviation if we miss, no templates?

Thanks for helping

No deviation or templates. Only the target unit is hit. Keeps the game going fast and stops it bogging down.

Quick trick to these rules...

Don't read anything into them and don't go "looking for the rule that must be there".

They are NOT that complicated and are not meant to be.

Artillery works (almost) exactly the same as all other fire. Only a few small changes.

Do note the errata for HE fire against vehicles as it is related and is the biggest change in the errata (and much needed) IMO.

Keep it simple in Bolt Action and you will get it right 90% of the time.
