SDZ Construction:Firing Lanes Range

Inter-service Resident Range Safety Course (Intermediate)

review of sdz construction fundamentals
Review of SDZ Construction Fundamentals
  • All SDZs, regardless of complexity, are drawn from a point or points of reference.
  • To construct an accurate and precise SDZ, you will need the following:
    • Compass for drawing circles and arcs
    • Protractor for measuring angles
    • Plotting scale for measuring distances
    • Fine-point pencil for drawing accuracy

The M240G Machine Gun is a general purpose machine gun. It fires the standard NATO 7.62 mm round and is used as a general support weapon. It has an integral, folding bipod and can also be mounted on a folding tripod.

constructing a batwing sdz
Constructing a Batwing SDZ
  • Construct a batwing SDZ for the M240G Machine Gun firing M80 Ball cartridge with multiple fixed firing points and targets.
  • Map Scale: 1:25,000.
  • Dimensions of the SDZ for this weapon system are given in DA-PAM 385-63, Appendix B, Table B-1.

August 2003

slide8
Plot the firing points and the baseline.
  • Plot the targets.
  • Draw a gun target lines on the extreme left and right firing positions.

August 2003

Distance X

  • From Appendix B, Table B-1, find Distance X for the 7.62mm M80 Ball.
  • Distance X =

4100m

August 2003

slide10
The left and right gun target lines are the left and right limits of fire.

Distance X

  • Annotate Distance X on the legend.

August 2003

slide11

Distance X

  • For the Dispersion Area, at the firing point on the left limit of fire, measure with a protractor a 5° Angle. Do the same on the right.
  • Draw tic marks as shown.

Area

Distance X

  • From where the left and right limits of fire intersect the firing line, draw a line through the tic marks out through Distance X.
  • This completes the Dispersion Area.

distance y
Distance Y
  • Distance Y is the maximum Distance downrange at which a lateral ricochet is expected to occur when a projectile is fired at a given quadrant elevation.

  • Place tic marks at Distance Y on both the right and left lateral limits of the Dispersion Area.
  • Next, determine angles P & Q.

angles p q
Angles P & Q
  • Angles P & Q are used to determine the Ricochet Area.

August 2003

angle p
Angle P
  • Angle P is the angle measured from the left and right side of the Dispersion Area from the firing point. (Round the angle to the nearest safe whole degree.)

distance w
Distance W
  • Distance W is the maximum lateral distance a projectile will ricochet after impacting within the Dispersion Area.
  • Distance W defines the maximum lateral edge of the Ricochet Area.
