Deliberate Fire

 

a type of artillery fire used to keep a target (object) neutralized and exhaust the enemy.

Deliberate fire is conducted from artillery guns and mortars between concentrations of fire and independently. In deliberate fire there are a set number of shells (mines, cartridges) to be fired per weapon and a set rate of fire (intervals between shots), which is much slower than for concentration of fire.
