Figure C Night Fire Qualification Table IV

C-6. QUALIFICATION STANDARDS

To qualify on the M2, the gunner must achieve the minimum standards on the firing tables.

a. Firing Table I. On this table, a gunner can earn one point for each round that hits in each space. He can earn up to 119 points on this table, but must earn at least 12 points (12 out of 17 pasters).

b. Firing Tables II, III, and IV. On each of these tables, the gunner can earn one point for each target hit plus a two-point bonus if he hits each target with the first burst. He can score up to 33 points on each of these tables, but to qualify, he must score at least 23 points on each.

c. All Tables. The gunner firing tables I through IV can earn up to 218 points. However, he must earn at least 12 points on Table I plus at least 23 points on each of the other three firing tables. Thus, he needs at least 12 + (3 x 23) = 12 + 69 = 81 points to qualify:

Back, DA Form 7007-R, Jun 91

Section Il. MULTIPURPOSE RANGE COMPLEX

The multipurpose range complex is designed to conduct armor and mobilized machine gun firing. Detailed setup and target configuration is described in FM 25-7; its layout is shown in Figure C-11. This section also discusses the mounted firing exercise, requirements for crews, rating procedures, and standards.

C-7. DESIGN SPECIFICS

The tower and administrative facilities must be positioned so they do not impede tactical maneuver onto or off of the range.

a. Hardened emplacements are for aerial gunnery exercises in addition to tank and BFV gunnery.

b. System calibration targets must be provided at ranges of 950, 1,200, and 1,500 meters, as shown in Figure C-11.

c. Gunnery tasks that require the use of dud-producing ammunition cannot be fired on the range proper. Provisions for these tasks must be made in impact areas adjacent to the range.

d. Double target mechanisms are recommended for use in the first six target groupings for BFV training, or for positioning throughout the range as needed to support local training requirements.

e. The administrative area is not shown in exact location or scale.

f. Additional defilade positions maybe required for BFV gunnery.

g. The addition of battle positions and positioning of personnel targets closer to the baseline may be necessary to permit BFV dismounted infantry training.
