Range Card An extent card is a representation of the relegated division that an immediate shoot weapon framework is expected to cover. An extent card helps in arranging and controlling shoot and helps the groups and squad heavy weapons specialists in securing focuses amid constrained perceivability. It is likewise a guide for substitution work force or detachments or squads to move into the position and situate on their part. The individual warrior or heavy armament specialist ought to make the reach card so he turns out to be more acquainted with the territory in his area. He ought to constantly evaluate the segment and, if important, upgrade his reach card. To set up an extent card, the heavy weapons specialist must know the accompanying data.

Slide 5

Sectors of flame. Target reference focuses. Dead space. Greatest engagement line. Weapons or heavy armament specialists reference point. Weapons image, left and right points of confinement, and north looking for bolt.

Slide 6

Sectors of Fire A division of discharge is a bit of the front line for which a heavy armament specialist is dependable. He might be alloted an essential and an optional area. Pioneers use parts of flame to guarantee flames are disseminated over the detachment\'s territory of obligation. A segment of flame is doled out to cover conceivable adversary roads of methodology. Pioneers ought to cover segments to give the best utilization of covering discharge and to cover territories that can\'t be locked in by a solitary weapon framework. The pioneer allocates left and right area limits utilizing unmistakable territory highlights or effectively conspicuous questions, for example, extensive rocks, utility poles, fences, or stakes.

Slide 8

Reference Points and Target Reference Points Leaders assign normal or man-made components as reference focuses. A fighter uses these reference focuses for target procurement and reach assurance. Some reference focuses may likewise be assigned as target reference focuses. A TRP is an effortlessly unmistakable point on the ground (normal or synthetic) used to start, disseminate, and control fires. The organization or unit assigns TRPs, and company and squad pioneers likewise ought to assign TRPs. TRPs dependably ought to be noticeable. These likewise might be helpful as roundabout flame targets. The officer or company pioneer assigns TRPs utilized as circuitous flame targets with the goal that objective numbers can be doled out. TRPs ought to be noticeable through all ranges accessible to the unit. They should be effortlessly identifiable to the shield amid sunshine. TRPs must be warmed so they can be perceived with warm sights, and they should have an infrared mark so they can be perceived through night vision gadgets.

Slide 10

Dead Space Dead space is any territory that can\'t be watched or secured by direct-fire frameworks inside the part of flame. All dead space inside the segment must be recognized to permit the company pioneers and squad pioneers to arrange circuitous flames (mortars, big guns, MK19, or M203) to cover the territory. The squad pioneer must walk the engagement zone to recognize dead space for his M249s and M240B. At the point when the vehicles are utilized as a part of the protection, the segment pioneers must walk the engagement region so heavy armament specialists can distinguish dead spaces through their remote weapons locating framework.

Slide 12

Maximum Engagement Line The MEL is the profundity of the area and typically is constrained to the greatest powerful engagement scope of the weapons frameworks. Nonetheless, it can be less if there are articles that keep the trooper from connecting with focuses at greatest powerful scopes of his allocated weapon. To help with deciding the separation to each MEL, the trooper ought to utilize a guide to guarantee that the MELs are delineated precisely on the extent card. Distinguishing the MEL will diminish ammo use amid an engagement.

Slide 14

Weapons image, left and right points of confinement, and north looking for bolt. Weapon Symbol. Demonstrates the sort of weapon that the reach card was intended for. Attractive North. Take the reach card and arrange it with the allocated segment of flame. Utilize a lensatic compass to decide attractive north. Keep the reach card arranged to the area of flame and draw the attractive north image in the fitting course in the Magnetic North box. Left Limit and Right Limit . Left and right cutoff points are fanciful lines from the heavy armament specialist\'s terminating position to an assigned point on the ground. Use landscape highlights when conceivable to assign left and right cutoff points. Other conspicuous protests, for example, a building or other man-made structures can be utilized. The territory between the left and right breaking points delineates the heavy armament specialist\'s division of flame or region of duty.

Slide 18

Preparation Procedures The individual officer or heavy armament specialist plans two duplicates of the extent card. In the event that substitute and supplementary terminating positions are alloted, two duplicates are required for these also. One duplicate is kept with the heavy weapons specialist and the other is given to the area or squad pioneer for his portrayal.

Slide 19

Placement of weapon image and left and right points of confinement. Draw the weapon image in the focal point of the little circle. Draw two lines from the position of the weapons framework stretching out left and right to demonstrate the breaking points of the part. The region between the left and right points of confinement delineates the heavy weapons specialist\'s part of shoot or territory of duty. Number as far as possible as No. 1 , number as far as possible No. 2 , and place a circle around every number. Record the azimuth and separation of every point of confinement in the information area .

Slide 20

Circle Value Determine the estimation of every circle by finding a landscape include most distant from the position and inside the weapon framework\'s ability. Decide the separation to the territory highlight. Round off the separation to the following even hundredth, if important. Decide the most extreme number of circles that will isolate uniformly into the separation. The outcome is the estimation of every circle. Draw the territory highlight on the proper circle on the reach card. Unmistakably check the augmentation for every circle over the zone where DATA SECTION is composed. For instance, in the photo a peak at 3,145 meters is utilized. The separation is adjusted to 3,200 meters, isolated by 8, and equivalents 400. In this way, every circle has an estimation of 400 meters.

Slide 21

Terrain Features for Left and Right Limits The Picture, demonstrates a farmhouse at 1,500 meters on as far as possible. The wood line at 2,000 meters explains as far as possible. Decide the separation to these components by utilizing a guide or laser range discoverer. Take note of how the circle markings can help with situating the elements on the reach card.

Slide 22

Reference focuses and target reference focuses. Draw all reference focuses and target reference focuses in the division. Stamp each with a surrounded number starting with 1. The photo demonstrates the peak as reference point (RP) 1, a street intersection as RP 2, and street intersection RP 3. There are times when a TRP and a reference point are the same point (for instance, RP 2 and RP 3 above). The TRP is set apart with the initially assigned number in the upper right quadrant, and the reference point is set apart in the lower left quadrant of the cross. This happens when a TRP is utilized for target securing and run assurance. Street intersections are drawn by deciding the extent to the intersection, by drawing the intersection, and by drawing the interfacing streets from the street intersection.

Slide 23

Dead Space Dead space is appeared as an unpredictable circle with corner to corner lines drawn inside. Any article that restricts perception or scope with direct fire will have the circle and inclining lines stretch out to the most remote greatest engagement line. On the off chance that the region past the dead space can be locked in, the circle is shut.

Slide 24

Maximum engagement lines MELs are appeared as in the photo. They are drawn at the greatest successful engagement range per weapon if there is no dead space to restrict their reach capacities. MELs are not drawn through dead space.

Slide 25

Weapon reference point The WRP is spoken to as a line with a progression of bolts reaching out from a known territory include and indicating toward the weapon framework image. This component is numbered last. The WRP area is given a six-digit lattice. At the point when there is no territory highlight to be assigned as the WRP, the weapon framework\'s area is appeared as an eight-digit matrix coordinate in the comments piece of the extent card. (In the photo to one side the WRP is number 4.)

Slide 26

Example of a finished extent card Complete the information segment. (1)  Position Identification. List essential, interchange, or supplementary positions. Exchange and supplemental positions must be plainly distinguished. (2)  Date. Show date and time the extent card was finished. Range cards, such as battling positions, are continually upgraded. The date and time are fundamental in deciding current information. (3)  Weapon. The weapon square shows weapon sort. (4)  Each Circle Equals ____ Meters. Write out yonder, in meters, between circles. (5)  NO (number). Begin with L and R limits, then rundown TRPs and RPs in numerical request. (6)  Direction/Deflection. The bearing is recorded in degrees. The d
