A viking can be chinooked (even a Merlin can do that) when broken in two... thats about it, getting artillery going to places (and a Viking would be resupply; the dinky Jackalls and there fore-fathers can do the towing, in a tight spot).
Thats when you can outsmart/ out-manoeuvre an opponent. If you set a BA bde into a comparison with the motor rifle Russian counterpart, the artillery comparison is about 1 to 3-ish.
if the gun is chinooked or merlined around, who needs a towing vehicle?
