This station normally has six setups. Each has a bipod-mounted machine gun with tools needed.
a. The grader tells each individual the range (500 meters) to the target and has him simulate the firing of a 7-round burst (M249) or 9-round burst (M60/M240B). The grader then tells the individual what corrections for deflection and elevation (in meters) are needed to hit the target. The gunner is then graded on his actions.
b. The following statement should be read at this station:
"DURING THIS PERIOD, YOU WILL BE ORGANIZED INTO FIVE GROUPS AND REQUIRED TO GO THROUGH THE STEPS OF FIELD ZEROING. YOU WILL BE ALLOWED FIVE MINUTES TO PERFORM AND EXPLAIN YOUR ACTIONS TO THE GRADER. IF YOU HAVE ANY PROBLEM, ASK YOUR GRADER. THE GROUPS NOT BEING TESTED WILL REMAIN TO THE REAR OF THE STATION WITH THEIR BACKS TOWARDS THE WORK AREA UNTIL THEY ARE CALLED"
c. A scoresheet, like the example in Figure B-4, should be used in grading individual performance.
d. As each group completes this station, each grader assembles the individuals that he graded and gives them a thorough critique (5 minutes).
