Collective Gunnery

These three exercises test the application of fire from two or more guns against linear, deep, linear with depth, and area targets. They test collective individual skills, fire control, leader skills, adjustment of fire, methods of target engagement, and the control of one or more fire units. Tables I-5 through I-7 should be used with unit LFXs. They can be held on any range or piece of terrain that supports the MK 19. Targets may be made up of 55-gallon drums, hulks of old vehicles, silhouettes, chalk, panel markers, or engineer tape.
