Fire with respect to the TARGET includes:

Frontal Fire - when the long axis of the beaten zone is at a right angle to the front of the target. Simply stated, that means when firing directly into the front of a target.

Flanking Fire - when delivered directly against the flank of a target.

Oblique Fire - when the long axis of the beaten zone is at an angle other than a right angle to the front of the target.

Enfilade Fire - when the long axis of the beaten zone coincides or nearly coincides with the long axis of the target. This type of fire is either frontal or flanking. It is the most desirable type of fire with respect to a target because it makes maximum use of the beaten zone.
