Mortars, artillery and direct airsupport.
The above have been developed for exactly the terrain you ask of. In comparison to "urban" terrain, where these weapons have a high probability for
casualties, due to the density of population. In a country enviornment, be it open fields or forested, the population has less density, meaning they
are dispersed and less likely to be casualties because of involvement(indirect and otherwise).
Im sure they must be totally different than urban warfare types.
In most aspects, yes.
To begin with, urban enviornments require first person precision, and more rapid communication than normal. Not to mention less destructive weapons
(unless a direct assualt).
Team work is the key in any situation, makeing that easier by useing smaller teams is important. The weapons must no less restrained, meaning
used when authorized and the outcome is considered/contemplated.
Continueing, "countryside" enviornments may or may not include civilian populations. In wilder or uncultivated land, unrestricted usage of all types
and catagories of military weaponry become no more availible. Natural resources includeing wildlife must beconsidered. In the absence of natural and
public interests, all weapon systems should be authorised.
For more detailed specifics, you may need to clarify.
