Abstract:

A study was made to compare simulated firing results -- obtained from a digital computer program -- with actual firing data from eight weapon systems, the 75mm Howitzer, M1A1, M3 76mm Gun, M1, M1A2 90mm Gun, M41 105mm Howitzer, XM103E 105mm Gun, M68 155mm Howitzer, M2 175mm Gun, M113 and 8-Inch Howitzer, M2. This program will be valuable in estimating charges and velocities for new weapon systems. Many hours of laborious written calculations may be eliminated and solutions obtained in a shorter time by using two IBM Data Cards and about two minutes of machine time.
