I noticed you have both the M270 and HIMARS with a range of 24km and the M270A1 and HIMARS II with a range of 35km.

The M270 and M142 HIMARS have a range of 32 to 35 km and with the ER (extended range) missile available on the M270A1 and HIMARS II will have a range of 45 km.

EFRB-BB ammunition has been moved to a tech item that when researched increases the range of 155mm balistic artillery. Not yet implemented.

Also, there will be a similar technology for MLRS units to represent extended range missiles.

So does that mean you will have two ranges for your artillery, regular and extended range? If so, that is the way it should be.

Actually, once you get EFRB-BB or Guided MLRS all your artillery ranges go up. There is also another future ammunition upgrade that provides further increased range.
