I think the scale on the scope is in mils.

I've just started messing with it. Tankers use this same method to establish,well, more like confirm range today,

You mean tankers like... Armor vehilces on a battlefield? If so. No way! Lase than fire. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif If you are in an Aux sight engagement you need better PMCS to keep your system up and running http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

That sounds about right. Marking in mils would make using triginomic calculations for range a little easier.

I think the only time a targeting retical like that is not marked in mils, is for gun-sights that are marked for a particular type of ammunition.

Guidon666, that's tanks. See the 'er' after tank? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Well.... That makes much more sense...

But in my defense - those of us on tanks... are tankers.

Ah you dirty tankers and your cheat button in the turret which tells you your range to target http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I was on an M2 Bradley (pre-ODS upgrade) so gunnery was shooting from the hip. Even doing this I managed 10 T's consistently and missed Top Gun only because that was a distinction reserved only for the Battalion Commander's BFV no matter how they did on table 8...

Ah, those were the days.

Hey NietzscheMadMan,

Done time on M3A2 (Non-ODS) myself.

And I am very sympathetic to your plight with the CDR's score.

Lost once to the SCO... By a perceived second on the time... Just so happened his gunner was running the time for us.

Quoting straight from the manual:
<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>Once you have the target‚‚ā¨ôs correct height from the ID book, all you need to do is read its apparent height (as angle &alpha; ) from the periscope or UZO. Both optics are fitted with marked reticles for this task and a Stadimeter-like tool to automatically measure the target. The meaning of the reticle marks can be read in the table below:
OPTIC USED SMALL MARKS LARGE MARKS
Periscope (1x or 1.5x) 1‚? 5‚?
Periscope (4x or 6x) 0.25‚? (0‚?15') 1.25‚? (1‚?15')
UZO (7x) 0.2‚? (0‚?12') 1‚? (0‚?15') <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
