Hello all,

I usually consider myself to be quite good at most things math and physics related, but compared to some of the people here, I'm sure I'm very terrible at it.

I have a very advanced projectile motion problem that I need to solve (not for school). I'm trying to contact everyone I know who might have an idea how to solve this problem.

The problem is to find the angles of fire so that a moving soldier can hit a moving target with a bullet. A full specification of the problem is in the pdf I link to below. If you can't find the exact solution, an approximate answer might also be adequate, and is desired.

As you see on the second page, the solution might require solving the moving frame of the soldier, which I don't know how to do.

Let me know if you are able to solve it, or even if you have any idea of how to approach solving it.

Thank you
