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

58

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 that the target should still move away from the board. Google the buzzword "hypotenuse".
      What does "any weapon" have to do with it when it comes to short-barrel?
      Is this damned self-isolation so jammed you? Shake it up!

            So on "Nimitz", training associated with counter-boarding activities, and therefore shoot at 10 meters, they do not need further to defend the galley according to the combat schedule, this is enough.

    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).
      Only commandos shoot at 50, 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.

But among the population, domestic crimes are still widespread, incl. mutilation and murder with household items, even punches and kicks, leading to death "due to head / neck injury as a result of falling from a height of one's own growth."

In general, a universal ban is in any case wrong. In the Soviet Union, I could buy a rifle, as a military man, but now no. And the gun is about nothing. I remember that I rented out hunting minimum. Exam, tickets, then-syo. An additional question: how far will you hit the moose? Well, I figured it was about 300 meters, probably. Examiners in a trance - you're out of your mind! This is absolutely unrealistic! Why am I to them? It's easy from the machine! I "beat" a man on the move at such a distance.

                        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, the height was at 350-400 m. Well, it's true, from a prone position. Two passes. Queues of 2 rounds. For the passage of 3 hits - the norm. At the expense of Evsyukov - such people do not live up to demobilization without problems, so you can not take into account. In the army, there are also miracles who are fired with a "white ticket". We're talking about those who quit their jobs normally. But the bailiffs and judges - I don't know, they only fired at the shooting range, and even then once a year; they would rather take it away than they use it.

                        laughing good This was probably back in the days of the "regional cable"?
                        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, they shoot and shoot. The l / s are trying and doing the right thing at least. Do not fucking relax the personnel. And here already, some clever people - "humorists" began to carry all sorts of nonsense about portraits of Putin and even without accompanying smiles.
    Py.Sy. I feel, now they will minus and assign to the sect of "Yankes witnesses" laughing

    A bunch of empty bottles overboard - and shoot as much as you want from any weapon laughing

    Do you know the height of the deck of an aircraft carrier? You’ll have to shoot the bottles from the 10th floor. laughing hi hi

    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
