Concentrated Fire

 

fire from several artillery batteries or battalions, tanks, guns, machine guns, grenade launchers, or submachine guns of one or more units on one target (or, in artillery, on a group of targets) or on a part of an enemy’s combat formation. Because of its high density, concentrated fire is used to destroy or neutralize enemy personnel and weapons more rapidly.
