Okay, MARCHins who've been in the Army .....
What do "RDP" and "sticks" mean in the context used here?
Someone please enlighten me.
RDP = Range Deflection Protractor
One of the measuring tools used to help the artillery battery calculate the firing trajectory
"Sticks" = ?
must be grunt slang - normally not found in the field manuals
could be a reference to one the other various measuring tools used here besides the RDP.
