Lets talk about fire control systems. How do they function and what makes them so expensive? As far as I understand basic fire control systems: The operator/chip in the round/marker inputs the shell data. A range finder finds the range of the target, and calculates the trajectory of the shell. A sensor (dunno what they are called) finds the height difference between the AFV and the target, compensating for the elevation/depression. A temperature sensor gives the temperature to compensate for loss of power in the gunpowder and air density. A wind sensor gives the wind s
