Abstract : The Hit Probability Program (HITPRO) is a digital simulation of an armored vehicle weapon system, containing representation of vehicle and target motion, vehicle ballistic computer, gun servo drives, gun recoil, shell nominal trajectory, dispersion due to high-frequency resonance of the gun and nondynamic causes from external analysis, and gunner response and decision characteristics. This volume is a user's manual for the simulation and presents flow charts for the main program and subroutines, plus listings of the FORTRAN IV statements, and detailed interpretation of the statements. Listings and definitions of the constants and variables used in the program are given the table form. Typical values of constants are provided. Detailed procedures for running the program and making minor program changes are given. (Author)
