Measurement Of Lateral Distance

The gunner can use the finger method to find distance. He extends his arm toward the target with his palm out, elbow locked, one eye closed, and index finger raised (Figure 5-9). He sights along the edge of the finger, adding extra fingers to fill in the space (the average finger is 30 mils wide). One finger equals 30 mils, two fingers equals 70 mils, three fingers equals 100 mils (Figure 5-10). Figure 5-9. Use of fingers to measure deviation. Figure 5-9.

Table E Practice and qualification tables

Gunnery exercises allow individual gun crews to practice firing the MK 19 while performing other tasks such as mounting the gun and preparing range cards. They also allow multiple gun crews to coordinate their fires while engaging targets. Table E-1 outlines each of the seven exercises. Based on their unit's training needs and the resources available, commanders must decide on the number and type of gunnery exercises to include in their annual training program.
