Abstract : This report is a compilation of graphs which will permit estimation of the free flight errors of projectiles for ranges up to 75 kilometers, provided the ballistic coefficient and initial velocity are known. The effects of variations in initial velocity, departure angle, ballistic coefficient, wind, and density have been examined parametrically, and the results are presented for both impact and time-fusing.
