Range Determination

The Dragon gunners use the stadia lines in the daysights and nightsights to determine if a target falls within range. Moving and stationary vehicles may present flank, oblique, and frontal or rear targets (Figure 8-11). At maximum range (1,000 meters), A 6-meter (20-foot) long target completely fills the area between the stadia lines and exceeds the stadia lines at a closer range.
