Individual Gunnery

These first four tables are used for gunnery practice. Each single gun exercise requires the gun crew to mount and dismount the MK 19, and engage point and area targets at various ranges. The two dismounted day exercises require the gun crew to prepare a range card and engage targets using data from the range card (Tables I-1 and Table I-2). The third exercise (Table I-3) is a mounted combat exercise and the fourth exercise (Table I-4) is a night fire exercise.

a. Instructional Fire Exercise (Table I-1). The instructional firing exercise gives the crew practice firing on a range.
