Abstract : The Multipurpose Arcade Combat Simulator (MACS) is an inexpensive, computer- based rifle trainer that helps soldiers master perceptual/motor and cognitive shooting skills. To date, more than a thousand MACS devices are being used for basic and unit rifle marksmanship training throughout the Army. This Moving Target Trainer's Guide details a MACS cartridge that provides instruction on engagement of moving targets and gives several levels of practice that gradually increase skill and knowledge requirements. The guide also offers helpful instructor recommendation to assist trainers. The program cartridge and the accompanying copy of the Trainer's Guide for the Commodore computer version of Moving Target MACS are available through the Fort Benning Training Support Center.
