72. The movement rates consider straight line distance and hence give rates of advance rather than vehicle speeds. The rates obtained from the movement rules are modified when the unit comes under direct fire, indirect fire, or air attack. The modification takes into account the added difficulties encountered when the vehicle is closed down and the extra caution which is likely tobe exercised when under fire. When under direct or indirect fire the sideroom commander, if he wishes, can maintain a fligher movement rate than would be assessed by the controller.

This was done by applying the known errors of observed fire to the individual points representing the guns, by assuming that the MPI could only be placed within 25 metres of the target centre, and by further assuming that the spread of rounds about the MPI of the battery would be a normal distribution. It was decided that a battery could only engage targets of platoon size, or affect a platoon size portion of a larger target. When additional batteries are superimposed an the same target the zone of dispersion is increased slightly to allow for the error tobe expected when more than one MPI is adjusted onto the target centre.
