    Alex, you seriously underestimate the mental calculational abilities of
    American artillerists! Someone already mentioned the John Wayne movie
    where he takes a sighting of the sun, looks at the sextant scale, and
    promptly announces the latitude and longitude of the fix. The artillerists
    could naturally perform similar feats of mental arithmetic!  ;-)
