Abstract:

The report deals with the effectiveness of moving fire, using the coaxial machine gun. The basic test procedures were selected for favorable operation of the gyrostabilizer. Only the nature of targets and tank speeds were varied to approximate more nearly the combat conditions for use of the machine gun. Comparative tests were conducted with and without the gyrostabilizer, at tank speeds of 2 and 10 mph and against three types of targets large, exposed panels so-called area targets of considerable length and limited height and standard silhouette of head-on prone man.
