3. CONDUCT QF EffGAGIBG STATIONARY TARGETS FROM 300 TG 1000 YARDS.
a- Each team will be assigned a block of eight targets, each block of which will be designated with the left and right limits marked with a 6-foot target mounted in two respective carriages. Thus, the right limit for one block will also serve as the left limit of the next block. The following targets will serve as left and right limits respectively: 1, 3, 15, 22, 29, 3d, and 43. The stationary target will be mounted in the left limit target carriage of each block.
b. The first stage of lire at each yard line (300, 500, 600, 700, S00, 900 and 1000) will be stationary targets from the supported prone position. Commands will be given from the center of the line by the range safety officer to load one round. The sniper and partner will have three mimutes to judge wind, light conditions, proper elevation hold, and fire three rounds with the target being pulled and marked after each shot.
(2; Target size formula - yard line k 2 - target diaioeter. ( Example 400 yard line -4x2-8 incites in target diameter).
The shooter will engage two pop-up target on each yard line while his partner calls wind and recored all iiiiormation in his data book.
c> Pop-up targets will not be engaged past 800 yards. Therefore, five rounds will be fired and scored on stationary targets at 900 and 1000 yards.
a- Scouring will be done on the firing iine and in the pits. Each student will fire 44 rounds plus two sighter on the 300 yard line to check weapon's zero. Each round will be valued at one point with a total value of 44 points. Passing score will be 80% oi a "POSSIBLE" score1 or 38 hits. A miss will be scored as a zero. Final score will be determine by the pit scoret and verifiers.
Enclosure 5 Observation Test,
1. The purpose of the observation exercise is to sharpen the sniper's ability to observe an enemy and accurately record the results of his observations.
a. The student is given an arc of about 160 degrees to his front to observe for a period of not more than 40 minutes. He is issued a panoramic sketch or photograph oi his arc and is expected to plot on the sketch or photo any objects he sees in his area.
b. Objects are so positioned as to be invisible to the naked eye, indistinguishable when using binoculars, but recognizable when using the spotting scope.
c. in choosing the location for the exercise, the following points should be considered:
<1; Number of objects in the arc. (normally 12 military Items)* (2) Tiiae limit. C40 minutes).
<3) Equipment which they are allowed to use. ibinos, spotting scope), (4) Standard to be attained. <80%)
d. Each student takes up the prone postion on xhe observation line and is issued a sketch or photo of the area. The instructor staff is available to answer any questions about the photo or sketch if a student is confused -
If the class is large, the observation line could be broken into a right side and a left side. A student could spend the first 20 minutes in one halt and then move to the other. This ensures that he sees all the ground in the arc.
At the end of 40 minutes, all sheets are collected and the students are shown the location of each object. This is best done by the students staying on their positions and watching while the instructor points to each object. In this way, the student will see why he overlooked the object, even though it was visible.
e. A critique is then held, bringing out the main points. 3. SCORING.
a. Student are given half a point for each object correctly plotted and another po for naming the object correctly.
4. STANDARDS, a. The student is deemed to have failed if he scores less than 8 points out of 12 points.
b. During the duration of the 6 weeks of training 11 excercises will be conducted. The student must pass with 80% accuracy 3 of the 11 observation exercises in order successfully pass the observation test.
