The US Navy showed what the crew of the aircraft carriers Theodore Roosevelt and Nimitz do


The US Navy showed what the crews of warships (aircraft carriers) located at sea and at the bases of the Navy are doing. One of the classes is shooting training.


So, on the aircraft carrier "Nimitz", which is located in the waters of the Pacific Ocean, seafarers performed off-mark firing, while on deck.

As a shooting gallery, a platform above the internal hangar was equipped for aviation techniques.

Shooting was carried out at targets from a distance of 10 m. At the same time, paper targets were fixed on wooden blocks, which for stability were tied with ropes to the deck.



Shooting was carried out while standing, as well as in the position on one knee.



Meanwhile, on the aircraft carrier CVN-71 "Theodore Roosevelt", against the backdrop of disinfection (due to the outbreak of the coronavirus on board the warship), they decided to resume aviation training. Recall that the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt continues to be located at the naval base located on the island of Guam. It was there that the aircraft carrier came after the infection was detected among the crew members.



Aerial training involves the use of the helicopter wing of this combat ship.

        It’s easy to imagine, it was often done for machine gun firing. In general, shooting from 10 meters is somehow funny, maybe it was easier to stab the target with a knife ?!

          This is a normal distance for the team to fight on their ship. Only someone can board their avik. And yes. Every sailor is a gunner, almost like their Marine Corps. This is neither good nor bad. Without ideological husk, this is normal.

          10-15 meters - the most pistol distance, 25m is already more for sports use. Incidentally, with a knife 10 meters to kill it, too, must be able to. I do not pretend ...

      What? Yes, there will be 15 meters from the waterline to the flight deck. Not to mention the fact that the target should depart from the board. Google the smart word "hypotenuse."
      What does “any weapon” have to do with it when it comes to the short barrels?
      Is this damned self-isolation so jammed you? Shake it up!

            So at “Nimice”, training related to counter-bargaining measures, therefore they shoot at 10 meters, and they don’t need to protect the galley according to the combat schedule, this is enough.

    Shooting was carried out on targets from a distance of 10 m
    Something a little distance. We have an exercise from PM at 25 m on target No. 4 (chest), which really builds up good skills for pistol shooting.

      You are talking about exercise N1.K, unfortunately, the most common in our Armed Forces, because it gives only initial skills, does not correspond to practical application (time is not limited).
      When performing other exercises, time is also limited, and the starting position may be different (a pistol in a holster), and the firing distance is from 20, up to 5 (!) Meters, which, you see, is closer to the possible conditions for the use of the short barrel.

        I am talking exclusively about the combined arms exercise. For example, exercises for special forces are completely different - in motion, lying on your back, etc. and right from a distance of 5-10 m.

      25 m for PM - standing sideways to the target, classically, with one hand?
      As far as I remember from my courses of Israeli private security companies, you first shoot, holding a weapon with two hands at 8 meters in order to understand what a pistol is. Then at 15, EMNIP, then at 25.
      Then for a while - I have to have time to pull the pistol out of the open holster, distort it and from 8 meters hit the A4 sheet with the first bullet in 1,9 seconds, in my opinion. I did it faster. You shoot with one hand in the front desk. (Under Israeli law, a gun is forbidden to be kept on a fuse).
      At 50 only special forces shoot, from the knee, if I'm not mistaken. A pistol is a melee weapon, so 10 meters for "removing rust" is quite normal hi And at 6 meters he shot after changing the ultrasound to the gun during the exercise - 1,6 s took to move the ultrasound to the left and get from the first shot into A4 laughing

          Because there were situations when, during a battle at short distances (including terrorist attacks), a person lingered while trying to load a weapon - you pull, not charge! This led to sad consequences - both for the shooter and for the surrounding fellow citizens / colleagues. At short distances for which the gun is intended, everything goes for seconds.

            I see. Thanks. But it seems to me, if the cartridge is in the chamber, then remove the fuse faster than send the cartridge. Or is it also impossible?

              This is the first question that everyone thinks - only special forces are allowed to complete tasks. With rifles - to all combat units. In Israel, a pistol is considered to be a more complex weapon than a long barrel, so the rules for working with it are quite strict.

                        That's right - a ban. In principle, yes, I agree. But among the population, domestic crimes are still common, including injuring and killing with household items, even with punches and kicks leading to death "due to a head / neck injury resulting from a fall from a height of one's own height." Can you imagine what will happen if the sale of pistols is allowed?

In general, a general ban is wrong in any case. In the Union, I could buy rifled, like a military, but now no. And the gun is about nothing. I remember handed over a hunting minimum. Exam, tickets, to-sho. An additional question: what range of elk will you beat? Well, I figured - 300 meters, I guess. Examiners in a trance - you're crazy! This is absolutely unreal! Why am I to them? From the machine - easy! I "hit" a person on such a range. They (with disappointment): why didn’t they immediately say that he was a military man? Only time was taken laughing

                        From 300 meters I saw a bad silhouette of the target at the shooting range - the standard with a long M-16 was the hit of two bullets from three shots. Russian - yes, they shoot perfectly, they are very cold-blooded and calm, which is very important during the shooting.
                        Well, the former military, the police (again, Yevsyukov), retired judges (the current ones still have the right), I don’t know the ChOPs, the rangers and the bailiffs.

                        In our control shooting exercise, we were 350-400 m tall. Well, really, from a prone position. Two passes. Queues of 2 rounds. For a pass of 3 hits - the norm. At the expense of Yevsyukov - such people do not survive to a demobilization without problems, so you can not take into account. In the army, there are also miracles that are fired with a "white ticket." We are talking about those who quit normally. But the bailiffs and judges - I do not know, they only shot at the shooting range, and even then once a year; they would rather be taken away from them than they would use it.

                        The supply of weapons can be determined by the course

                        No course can replace a skill. I'm talking about the first wave of relaxation. Then you can and the "course", probably. And when you used a pistol from a holster, from a breast pocket-holster, from the position when it was plugged into the shops on the armor - what course do you still need? Well, recall the nuances of the law. Somehow we, who had a machine gun in the state, kept them at home. And here is the case. Night, a horror movie is on TV. Knock on the door. Startled, but opened laughing There - our deputy head, a roommate, a warrant officer (Dagestani by nationality), he only had a PM in the state. Pitifully asks - do you have a weapon? I say, but what? I want to watch the movie, but scary! Give me the gun. Take it in the hallway under the overcoat, but watch the movie with me. He was hugging with a gun and watched a movie. laughing What courses do we still need? laughing drinks

                        laughing good This, probably, in the days of the "district cable" was?
                        I will say one thing about the Courses - even after passing them and retraining in the real situation (there were few of them) I made a bunch of mistakes and stupid things)).

                        No, it was at the time of CAT-1. No courses will be prepared for the use of weapons. Or sport, or the army. The latter is preferable - they immediately learn to shoot people.

                        So my Courses were after the army - few people prepare for such actions. Character is needed and coordination - only this sport in the application of the short-barreled and useful.

    The US Navy showed what the crew of the aircraft carriers Theodore Roosevelt and Nimitz do

    Well, shoot and shoot. At least they are trying to do something l / s and are doing it right. Do not hell to relax the staff. And here already, some wise men - "comedians", began to carry all sorts of rubbish about portraits of Putin, and even without accompanying smiles.
    Py.Sy. I feel that they are going to zamusunyut and will attribute to the sect "witnesses of the Yankees" laughing

    This is training for real fighting gays !! Not scary! Targets in the return line do not shoot! The most that !!!! I fired a couple of times, and went to my beloved's cabin to tell what a pro he was! But I wonder what these workouts give? Allow you not to forget where the trigger is located at the gun? Or are they getting ready for boarding? wassat

    MILLIONS live in the country, who shot only at targets (at a shooting range, at a shooting range) - where else is learning to shoot? I want to answer Chingachguk, but the admin will not miss. fool
