Abstract:

Observations of zeroing with the 25-mm gun of the Bradley Fighting Vehicle BFV indicated excessive ammunition expenditure. Analysis of fielded boresight equipment indicated that 25-mm boresight adapters were generally less accurate than boresight telescopes however, some telescopes were extremely inaccurate. Data indicated that telescope accuracy decreases with equipment use and abuse. Much inaccurate equipment was not designated for repair or replacement lack of fielded accuracy standards for either the 25-mm adapter or the 25-mm kit may contribute to this undesirable situation.
