  • Patent number: 4521196
    Abstract: In a training unit for aiming at fictitious targets as applicable in particular to a firing simulator, provision is made for an optical sighting device in which the line of sight from reticle image to target is orientable at least at the start of a fictitious-firing event. Target signals define successive images of a fictitious target as a function of the shape and continuous relative displacement of the target at least in distance from the training unit and/or in angular position with respect to the line of sight. Each successive target image is formed by means of a luminous point moving on a screen, the successive images thus formed being projected in the field of view of the sighting device.
