DIAGRAM 9.
RANGE CORRECTION FACTORS
Range correction in Yards per Knot. vs. Range in Yards.
Multiply by speed along in KNOTS to give
Range Correction in YARDS.
WIND
-Kw = 1.69( T/3 - cos(theta)/10 + 344 b sin(theta)/V )
Where a= Alteration in range for 10 F.S.M.V.
b.-Alteration in range for 10' elevation.
Enemy Ship Ke= 9/16T
Own Ship Ko=a/11.85

RANGE CORRECTION FACTORS
FOR ENEMY AND WIND.
TO TIME OF FLIGHT BASE
