|Range VS Gun Elevation is a log curve.
The Range Chart below shows the decrease in range as gun elevation increases. This happens because as gun elevation increases the effect of gun elevation to increase range decreases.
Any USN range table column 2b shows the amount gun elevation must increase for a 100 yard increase in range.
Refer to OP 1100 Range Tables for the 16" HC 1900 Pound Projectile for this information.
