Range Training

Guns on the firing line. They practice all the skills needed to keep these troops winning in combat.

The forward observer sees the target and calls the fire direction center. Seen here just above the man in the white uniform.

The fire direction center will calculate the solution to the firing problem.

The FDC will then tell the guns the direction to shoot to hit the often unseen target.

A long line of firing troops and guns. Machine guns and sniper rifles often fire at much greater ranges then normal rifles, so their range facility is located right next to the artillery range.
Figures are Tim Mee, Marx, and MPC in 60mm size. Some are recasts and some are original, many are forty years old or more.
