Abstract:

An analytical study using HITPRO was conducted to extend the knowledge of automatic cannon weapon system performance by determining the improvement in target hit capability relative to an unaided rapid fire weapon system that could be achieved by the addition of gunner aids of varying complexity. Conclusions are drawn on the effectiveness of gunner aids and recommendations made for future development work. Appendices list the HITPRO subroutines and ballistic data used in the study and the simulation output data. Author
