Engaging Targets During Low Light and Darkness

Combat targets are frequently engaged during periods of darkness or under low-light conditions. Although basic marksmanship fundamentals do not change, the principles of night vision must be applied and target detection is applied differently. During periods of darkness or low light, a Marine's vision is extremely limited. A Marine must apply the techniques of night observation in order to detect potential targets, and he must develop skills that allow him to engage targets under these conditions.
