I built a mission using the new MT desert map, based on Panzers making a pincer move on the petrol storage facility located at the only town on the map. I placed several field artillery pieces on the map and some static cameras to gauge AI behavior. I was surprised to see the artillery no longer fired at the advancing armor and were systematically destroyed by the Panzers. A few stationary M4 Shermans did exchange fire with the Panzers, so the tanks are not affected. I have built numerous missions with ongoing artillery duels as part of the scenario and I hope if something in the patch adversely affected their behavior, it will be fixed.

Hmm, funny...I've made plenty of artillery battles on the desert map with them firing at tanks. You seem to be an experienced builder so I assume you got them facing the right way, aren't blocked in anyway and are artillery, not a static object. Hmm..don't know then.
