About Milliradians

Milliradians, often abbreviated as mrad or mil, are a unit of measurement commonly used in fields such as military, engineering, and ballistics. Derived from the concept of a radian, which is a unit used to measure angles in a circle, a milliradian is equal to one-thousandth of a radian. This makes it a very precise unit for measuring small angles.

Milliradians are particularly useful in long-range shooting and artillery calculations. In these applications, milliradians are used to measure the angular size of a target or the angular deviation of a projectile's trajectory. By converting these angular measurements into milliradians, it becomes easier to make accurate adjustments and calculations for aiming and targeting.

One of the advantages of using milliradians is that they are a dimensionless unit, meaning they do not depend on the distance to the target. This makes milliradians a versatile and consistent unit of measurement, allowing for easy comparison and calculation across different ranges. Additionally, milliradians are often used in conjunction with metric units, making them compatible with the International System of Units (SI).

In summary, milliradians are a precise and widely used unit of measurement for small angles. Their applications range from military and ballistics to engineering and surveying. With their dimensionless nature and compatibility with metric units, milliradians provide a reliable and standardized method for measuring and calculating angles in various fields.

Note that there are several variants of Milliradians, namely NATO Mils, USSR Mils, US WW2 Mils and UK Mils. Information on these variants are available from the links on this page.

About US WW2 Milliradians

During World War II, milliradians (mils) and radians played a crucial role in various military operations. Milliradians are a unit of angular measurement commonly used in artillery and long-range shooting. They are derived from the concept of a radian, which is the angle subtended at the center of a circle by an arc equal in length to the radius of the circle. A milliradian is equal to one-thousandth of a radian, making it a more precise unit for measuring small angles.

In the context of World War II, milliradians were used extensively by artillery units to calculate the elevation and azimuth angles required to accurately hit targets at long distances. Artillery gunners would use specialized instruments, such as the M2A2 aiming circle, to measure the angle between the target and the gun. By converting this angle into milliradians, gunners could then adjust the elevation and direction of the gun to ensure accurate fire. This was particularly important in situations where targets were located far away or obscured by terrain, as milliradians allowed for precise adjustments to be made, increasing the chances of hitting the target successfully.

There are 4,000 US WW2 milliradians in a full circle.
