1P59 Pancratic Sniper Sight
Pancratic sniper sight "Giperon" Is designed for target reconnaissance and aimed fire from sniper rifles. Provides for the automatic input of the sighting angle in the course of target ranging.
The use of the 1P59 Giperon pancreatic sight during firing from a sniper rifle makes it possible to improve the efficiency of SVD firing, as compared to the organic PSO-1 sight, 1.3-2 times (depending on the target range and size) for the account of a higher magnification, employment of a more precise range scope, simultaneity of target ranging and setting of the sighting angles, as well as arrangement of the sighting angle setting scale within the field of view of the sight.
For the account of application of the pancratic change of magnification, the use is made off a method of measuring distance to targets of known sizes based on smooth variation of magnification until the target image is inscribed in the ranging mark of the device.
The ranging mark is embodied in the form of 5 lines (the lines length and gaps between them correspond to the shoulder breadth of a man at a respective distance). Aside from that, the ranging mark provides a means of obtaining range to targets with base dimensions of 1.7 m (full-height figure) and 0.75 m (breast silhouette) and simultaneously setting the sighting angle.
