No supplementary references are needed for this task.
The crew of the Bradley fighting vehicle expects the 7.62mm coaxial
machinegun to aim and fire at the same target as the 25mm gun.
Therefore, the line of sight of the 7.62mm machinegun must be aligned
with the line of sight of the 25mm gun.
This alignment is
accomplished during the boresighting process. Once the 25mm gun has
been boresighted, the 7.62mm coaxial machinegun can be boresighted to
the same aiming point.
This task describes
Boresighting the Coaxial Machinegun
