Abstract : This report provides details of the effort (February to December 1991) to produce a Multipurpose Arcade Combat Simulator (MACS) program for the M16 rifle with telescope (Ml6A3). Because the Army delayed selection of a telescope, all aspects of the program could not be completed; programs were developed using the telescope reticle with the highest probability of selection. The program may be fired with telescope or iron sights. It reviews basic marksmanship, the long-range engagement of stationary and moving targets, the effects of wind, and the combined effects of range, wind, and target movement.
