How to Convert Mils (NATO) to Revolutions

Protractors are often used to measure angle

Convert mils (NATO) to revolutions with this simple formula:

revolutions = mils (NATO) × 0.000156

Converting a mil angle measurement to a revolution measurement involves multiplying the angle by the conversion ratio to find the result. One mil is equal to 0.000156 revolutions, so to convert simply multiply by 0.000156.

For example:
5 mil = (5 × 0.000156) = 0.000781 r

Mils (NATO) and revolutions are both units used to measure angle. Learn more about angle and find more angle measurement conversion calculators. Mils (NATO) are an angle measurement and can be abbreviated as mil, for example 1 mil. Revolutions are an angle measurement and can be abbreviated as r, for example 1 r.

A mil, short for milliradian, is equal to 1/6,400 of a circle. The mil used by the US military and NATO forces is slightly different than the true value of a milliradian, which is equal to 1/6,283 of a circle.

During World War I the US adopted what is now the NATO mil to replace degrees and minutes for use in artillery sights. They opted to round mils to 6,400 per circle for simplicity at the time. Today, the mil is commonly used to measure adjustment of sights and scopes of firearms.

A revolution is equal to 1 rotation around a circle, or 360°. Revolutions are commonly used to measure the speed of rotation, for example when measuring the revolutions per minute(RPM) of a vehicle's engine.
