b) Firing line for row of weapons firing forward.
c) Rectangular area for maneuvering and firing short-range at
close-up stationary or moving targets immediately in front of firing and
maneuvering area, or may be for maneuvering and firing at long-range targets.
Buffer Area.
Firing on adjacent or or superimposed range may
necessitate buffer area immediately in front of firing and maneuvering area
and clone-up target area to protect personnel occupying firing and maneuvering
Unprotected personnel occupying the maneuver and firing area or Area
E, must be separated from engaged targets by a minimum distance equal to the
engagement distance given In Table 11-1, MCO P3570.1A.  This serves as a
buffer area to protect personnel from hazardous fragments from the firing of
high explosive projectiles at hard or fragment-producing targets.
Cannon Maximum Range. For &limiting safety tones, consider
approximate maximum ranges for standard firing-table conditions.  Local
conditions may dictate some departure from these.
Cannon Except Tank and Aircraft Cannon.  Criteria for &signing
projectile ranges for cannon except tank and antiaircraft cannon, mortars,
rocket launchers, and recoilless rifles are given in following paragraphs.
Included are:  Howitzer, 105 mm; Howitzer, 155 mm; gun, 175 mm; gun, 8 inch;
gun, 90 mm (firing antipersonnel-type "Beehive" cartridges); Howitzer, 105 mm
(firing antipersonnel-type "Beehive" cartridges); Field artillery trainer, M31
(firing 14.5 mm ammunition with charge 1 propellant); and M/12 cannon-launched
guided projectile (Copperhead).
Definitions. See Figure 9 for general layout applicable to field
artillery cannon ranges and to projectile firing weapons.  Design first
requires an available surface danger zone large enough to accommodate the
required impact area for the planned exercise with the weapon (or the several
to be used) that requires the greatest firing angle and the longest maximum
range (distance X).
a) Area A and B.  Area A provides lateral buffer area; Area B
provides depth buffer area around periphery of impact area.
b) Area C.  Borders the near ride (the minimum range edge) of the
impact area and ray be occupied by protected personnel during indirect firing
of field artillery cannon.  Use of Area C must be wholly in control of the
Navy Range Officer.
c) Area D.  A minimal danger area over which field artillery cannon
may be fired in Indirect rode while area is occupied.  Use of Area D
must be wholly under U.S. Government control.
