Charis pioneered airburst fuses and has very professional artillery.
However, such takes great skill and industry to work well.
No one will have radar "VT" fuses.

There is an easy alternative and with "rebounding" mines, a potential example exists for innovation.
Rebounding fuses were developed by Germany and are effective low cost ways to make artillery more deadly.
Can also work with grenade launcher and recoiless projectiles, less so with rockets (at least while engines still burn).

A tool any side in the future conflicts may reasonably develop.
