Conditions Affecting Marksmanship In Combat

Many factors affect the application of marksmanship in combat; among them are—

i Most targets are linear in nature and will consist of a number of men or objects irregularly spaced along covered or concealed areas. i Most targets can be detected by smoke, flash, dust, noise or movement, but will only be visible for a brief moment before taking cover. i The nature of the target, irregularities of terrain and vegetation will often require a rifleman to use a position other than prone in order to fire effectively on the target.

i The time in which a target can be engaged is often fleeting.
