Artillery Fire : how to select the targets ?

hello,
if there are multiple targets at the same distance , do you select specific single target or do you fire to all eligible targets ?
Or is it a player's choice ?

Range is from the centre of the firing unit to any part of the target, so I'd imagine that not all will be the same distance.

As for artillery if you have a brigade in command of an ADC then you can fire on the target of your choice ( found in the rules Amendment's)

As for artillery without an ADC then I'd fire on the unit that's the biggest threat to your front as sometimes common sense can override complicated situations that arise such as your own.

Please put attention to rule "Multiple Targets" at page 74.
In normal fire my view is that if Artillery Battery is firing at close/canister range then all targets on its front should be selected.
But at effective/long distance is up to you to select a specific target according to priority targets rule
or select multiple targets that lie into "lane" of battery.
What do you think ?
