(Russian mishen ’), a simulated object used for training on proving grounds, on target ranges, at sea, or on rifle ranges.
For small-arms firing, targets may be round (in sporting events) or in the shape of a figure; for artillery, they may be shields, figures, and various natural objects, such as trenches and blindages; for target firing in the air, the targets may be para-chutes or cloth cones towed on a rope by an airplane or a remote-controlled dummy airplane; for target firing at sea, floating vertical (artillery) shields and other targets are used. Targets may be stationary, bobbing, or moving.
