The Advanced Rifle Marksmanship ARM program existing in 1981 was analyzed and three major problems were identified a limited scope of training b inappropriate automatic fire and night fire training, and c inadequate feedback bullet location information. An extensive analysis of Army Training and Evaluation Programs was performed for both the Infantry ARTEP 7- 15 and the Mechanized Infantry ARTEP 71-2. This analysis attempted to identify the most important marksmanship skills required by Infantrymen, but which had not been taught in the Basic Rifle Marksmanship program.
