Marksmanship

Discussion in 'Australia' started by rustygun, Jul 18, 2012.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Can someone give me a rundown on the LF series for basic F88 qual, annual qual and marksmanship award, please?

    If it's too much (and it probably is), can someone point me to a link for a pdf or similar download(s) on this sort of thing?

    Cheers...
     
  2. Why would we know anything about the Steyr??!
     
  3. The Aussies might.
     
  4. PA, it's in the Aussie forum, now just pickup your crayons and walk away quietly; there's a good boy!!! ;)
     
  5. Oh. Bugger. I apologise.

    For some reason I thought it was in the shooting forum.

    Errrr....fair dinkums etc
     
  6. Well, you know the "Steyr" and the "F88" are the same thing so it looks like your 8130 posts in three and a half years have not been wasted. Well done!

    Now if anyone with a clue would mind replying, I'd be grateful!

    Cheers...
     
  7. There's some info on an updated pam here:

    Army - The Soldiers' Newspaper

    It has basic references to the LF tests performed, but not much in depth detail.
     
  8. I found this on an Ausmil forum. Though it'll be out of date:

  9. Hmmm. More to it than I remember. Thanks for that, much appreciated.
     
  10. My pleasure.
     
  11. The only mandatory training is grouping and zeroing, 4 x 5 round groups, average group size no more than 200mm
    This can be completed on the WTSS
    It is part of the AIRN requirements (Army Individual Readiness Notice)

    LF6 is completed from 300m down to 100m, some in trench, then standing, kneeling/squatting and prone. LF 6 normally completed on ETR, so no need to run around, very civilised.
     
  12. Thanks, Nige.
