Scaled Silhouette Targets

Scaled silhouette targets were developed in conjunction with the zero target to expand the use of widely available 25-meter ranges beyond that of just zeroing weapons. They are designed to provide an alternative to fill a significant training void. In the past, soldiers went directly from the zero range to the field fire environment. They fired at pop-up targets located at ranges of 75 to 300 meters and received only hit or miss feedback as to performance. The pop-up silhouette target represents an important skill that all soldiers should perform well But hit and miss information does not constitute a good learning environment for the development and refinement of good marksmanship skills. The bad firer will miss most targets and never know what he is doing wrong. The goodfirer will hit most targets but will be unable to refine his skills to hit near target center.
