An ATAGS located in Amritsar can hit the middle of Lahore with regular unguided shells. We do not need these uber-expensive 100km ranged shells against the pakis. What we need is overwhelming numerical superiority in regular tube and rocket artillery. Keep it simple and buy in bulk should be our philosophy.
So can a M-77 located in Lahore or Mudkee be very successful in obliterating chosen targets in Amritsar.
Couple of points of view from spending way too much time with artillery officers.
You don't place your artillery inside urban areas. Prevents freedom of movement and opens you up to entrapment.
You don't other b4st4rd's built up areas, you scout and recee for bunched\ grouped\ massed infantry and hit em hard.
To give you an idea, my family owns a rather mega large orchard in Punjab, next to the border.
During exercises and during Op Parikaram, do you want to take a guess who was there the whole time.
yes the infantry, hunkered down and camo-ed.
The officers leading the men there were under no doubts that their location was marked and known to the Pak Army artillery.
Now I am sure the same exists in the other direction.
Flattenning cities for the sake of flattening cities was Stalingrad WW2 style.
it only came back in Iraq when both parties wanted to occupy the land and the insurgents took advantage of the Urban Jungle.
