A series of tracking studies was conducted by the U. S. Army Human Engineering Laboratories, to evaluate how a gunners ability to maintain tracking of a moving target during and after firing is affected by different types of tracking systems. Angular tracking error and smoothness of tracking were compared for three types of tracking systems an M-48 tank turret rate system, a 106mm Recoilless Rifle fired from the XM29 two-hand wheel mount, and the XM89 free mount. Additional non-firing tracking tests of machine gun mounts were also performed. Author
