FM/BS-297.V1.03 - Use an appropriate shooting stance
Skill

Use an appropriate shooting stance for the engement while taking into account available cover, sight stability and mobility requirements.

 

Extract to guide probably:

Know the advantages and implications of each available shooting stance.

Recognise the advantage in flexibly changing stances to suit the engagement and available cover.

Standing

  • most visible shooter target profile
  • likely to clear ground-based obstacles with line of bore
  • quickest to assume
  • least stable, hardest to take long-range shots

Kneeling

  • makes use of ground-based cover such as rocks and low structures
  • reduces shooter target profile in the open
  • quick to assume
  • stable enough for extended-range shots
  • versatile

Sitting

  • low profile
  • useful to clear obstacles low to the ground, such as grass, that otherwise hinder prone shooting
  • low mobility, rendering reaction to fire delayed
  • very stable

Prone

  • lowest profile
  • low mobility while still allowing lateral reactions to fire by combat rolling
  • capable of shooting underneath obstacles, including cars by adjusting stance down or left / right
  • most stable
