071-315-2308 (SL1) - Engage Targets with an M16-Series Rifle Using a Night Vision Sight AN/PVS-4

Standards: Fired all 18 rounds and hit the targets at least nine times. At least five rounds hit the 150-meter target; at least two rounds hit the 50- to 100-meter target, and at least two rounds hit the 200- to 250-meter target.

Conditions: During darkness, given an M16-series rifle with a mounted and zeroed AN/PVS-4; one silhouette target between 50 and 100 meters, one at 150 meters, and one between 200 and 250 meters; and one magazine with 18 rounds of ammunition.

Standards: Fired all 18 rounds and hit the targets at least nine times. At least five rounds hit the 150-meter target; at least two rounds hit the 50- to 100-meter target, and at least two rounds hit the 200- to 250-meter target.

 

Performance Steps

Note. Ensure the AN/PVS-4 has the proper sighting reticle (figure 071-315-2308-1).

1.   Place the sight into operation.

2.   Use the sight reticle.  When used with the rifle, the AN/PVS-4 sight reticle consists of two parts (figure 071-315-2308-1).

a. Use the upper part of the reticle (range scale) to determine range to the target.

b. Use the lower part of the reticle for aiming the weapon.

Note. Ensure the AN/PVS-4 is mounted to the rifle using the rifle mounting adapter and not the M203 mounting bracket.

3.   Determine range to target.

a. The vertical lines on the range scale tell the distance from a 6-foot man.

(1)  Place the target on the horizontal line and match it with one of the vertical lines (A, figure 071-315-2308-2).

(2)  Read the number at the bottom or top of the vertical line. That is the distance in hundreds of meters to the target.

(3)  If the figure is the same height as the vertical line above and below the horizontal line, the distance will be half the number at the top or bottom of that line (B, figure 071-315-2308-2.

(4)  The man shown in A, figure 071-315-2308-2 is 400 meters away.  The man in B, figure 071-315-2308-2 is 500 meters away.

b. The horizontal line of the range scale indicates the range (in hundreds of meters) of a 20-foot target such as a tank or large truck viewed from the side.

(1)  Place the left edge of the vehicle at the left side of the horizontal line (figure 071-315-2308-3).

(2)  Read the range to the tank from the scale at the right edge of the tank. As shown in A, figure 071-315-2308-3, the range to the vehicle is 1,000 meters.

(3)  When viewed from the front or rear, the vehicle width is about half the length. Read the placement of the vehicle width on the range scale as half the range scale value. As shown in B, figure 071-315-2308-3, the range to the vehicle is 400 meters.

4.   Engage targets using the sight reticle.

a. The rifle aiming point for ranges out to 250 meters is the center of the three straight lines (zero aiming point) (figure 071-315-2308-4). The top of the vertical line is the aiming point for 400 meters, and the bottom of the line is the aiming point for 600 meters.

b. Locate the target, estimate the range, and place the proper aiming point on the target.

WARNING: To prevent eye injury from weapon recoil, attach the eye guard to the sight before firing the weapon.

c. Fire the weapon using correct marksmanship procedures.

Note.  When firing the rifle, disregard the three dots to the right of the aiming point; these are needed only when firing the M203.

Evaluation Preparation: 

Setup: At a live-fire range, provide the equipment and materials given in the task conditions. Turn off the sight after evaluation.

Brief Soldier: Tell the soldier to engage all targets with a minimum of nine hits (to include at least five hits on the 150-meter target and at least two hits on the 50- to 100-meter target, and at least two hits on the 200- to 250-meter target) out of 18 rounds. 

Performance Measures

GO

NO GO

1.   Placed the AN/PVS-4 into operation.

--

--

2.   Engaged targets.

--

a. The 150-meter target with at least five hits.

 

 

b. The 50- to 100-meter target with at least two hits.

 

 

c. The 200- to 250-meter target with at least two hits.

 

 

Evaluation Guidance:  Score the soldier GO if all performance measures are passed. Score the soldier NO GO if any performance measure is failed. If the soldier scores NO GO, show him what was done wrong and how to do it correctly.
