Abstract : This report discusses the accuracy of main armaments on armored systems; the main focus is tank cannon, however missiles fired from armor are also discussed. It gives the weapon system analyst an understanding of the sources of inaccuracies, describes the available data, tells how the data should be used in stochastic simulations of combat, and explains how to calculate hit probabilities. For tank cannon, it presents methodology of the stationary firer versus a stationary or moving target as well as methodology for treating a moving firer versus a stationary target.
