    A simple Bore sight, like many anti tank guns in the 50's that used a M8C .50 calibre spotting rifle, which fired a zirconium-tipped spotter tracer round visible past 2,000 yards, it could engage targets out to 2,000 m to ensure they were on target before releasing the main round.

    Cinders, they would never fire that at boats with deadly heavily armed smugglers, killers and kidnappers on board its surely against Human Rights
