  1. Is GPS-guided artillery really necessary? The Army claims reduced cost per kill – I don’t believe it. The extended range is nice but don’t RAP rounds already do this? The gun systems already have GPS tied into their aiming systems. How accurate does field artillery need to be? What’s next GPS guided hand grenades? We’ve had laser guided Copperhead rounds for years. If the Army would just train people to use them, Excalibur would be redundant.
