30 yards Range for AFV.

Recommended Posts

Dong a bit of Research on a old moving target range the Canadians  tank crews used during the war. They referred to the range as the 30 yards range and as  anti tank gun range as well. I believe 30 yard range practices were used for new recruits to get used to training and maneuvering on the coaxial machine gun in the tank before the practiced at much longer distances. I believe the tank gun scope was and machinegun was zeroed at 30 yards at smaller targets. Am i right or wrong, can anyone else enlighten me about the 30 yards range which i was told was still used after the war.

Could the weapons have been sub-calibre inserts, as used in more recent times, or had they not been invented at that stage?
