The winner of the Sitting Duck Award for silliest
military invention ever. Stick your artillery spotter on
an over-engineered seat atop a telescoping pole where every sniper in
a two mile radius can have a clean shot at him. And for that
added touch, don't bother to give him a helmet or even a pair
binoculars. He'll just drop them as he's riddled with bullets
Not that you'll be in any position to worry.
You'll be a bit busy yourself soon-- seeing as you've just run
up a flag telling the enemy exactly where you guns are located!
