G-55: Volley Firing

Previous: G-54: Pair Firing

G-55. Two or more shooters can engage a single target when the range is known. These shooters engage the target at the same time on a prearranged signal such as a command, whistle, mine, or TRP. This can be the most effective means of engagement as it places the most possible rounds on one target at one time, increasing the possibility of a kill. (See figure G-18.)
