Types of Moving Targets

There are two types of moving targets: steady moving targets and stop and go targets. Steady moving targets move in a consistent manner and remain in a Marine's field of vision. A walking or running man is an example of a steady moving target. A stop and go target appears and disappears during its movement. A stop and go target will present itself for only a short time before it reestablishes cover. An enemy moving from cover to cover is an example of a stop and go target. This target is most vulnerable to fire at the beginning and end of its movement to new cover because the target must gain momentum to exit its existing cover and then slow down to occupy a new position.
