NLAW Protractor

I think there is a simple way to estimate the range to targets before engaging with an NLAW.

* If the NLAW arming range is 20 meters

* And the average height between building stories is 3.3 meters

* And the average height of a man is 1.7 meters.

* And the average height of a T-72 is 2.23 meters

* And we know what floor we are firing from.

Then we can calculate the safe arming distance with a device that uses a weight to determine angle.

If you live in Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania or Moldavia and you have access to a 3D printer, contact me and perhaps we can all collaborate over Discord create a 3D printed device that can help NLAW gunners in Ukraine determine distance to a target in an urban environment.

And also contact me if you are an architect and know the exact height between floors of buildings in Ukraine.
