Hi,
Can you shoot through artillery in impetus the same as you can shoot through s and LH? If not why not?

This has come up before. Currently Advance Impetus only lists S and CL. As to the rationale of why one can't shoot through Art I don't know. Perhaps the equipment is sufficiently obstructing to make it difficult. Or perhaps firing troops wouldn't be trained to ignore Art units.

it's probably because in the ancient period artillery in the field is by far and away the exception and in a siege it would be the primary target, so having it being ignored just feels wrong - if its there it is probably significant.

Into the medieval period with gunpowder the artillery becomes an even more significant and awe inspiring thing and if on the field probably shouldn't be ignored.

Those are fairly questionable value judgements and in a practical sense you'd think they would be ignored for the combat arms behind. Then again that just might be a modern viewpoint coloured by post 18th century assumptions.
