Recognizing a possible need for increased efficiency in gunnery training, and the dependence of increased training efficiency on the availability of a pool or data base of gunnery job objectives, the US Army Armor School initiated research to develop the data base and to examine proposed gunnery training. A project to 1 Develop a performance-requirements data base, or pool of job objectives for M60A1AOS tank gunnery. 2 Specify the tank gunnery training objectives that are implied in TC 17-12-5 Tank Gunnery Training October 1974. 3 Compare the gunnery training objectives and the gunnery job objectives. Conclusions reached 1 The gunnery job objectives developed during this project seem comprehensive. 2 The gunnery performance standards proposed in TC 17-12-5 October 1974 should be revised for increased specificity and decreased reliance on expert opinion. 3 The relevance of the gunnery exercises proposed in TC 17-12-5 October 1974 to the gunnery job seems unquestionable. 4 Gunnery training, as proposed in TC 17-12-5 October 1974 is not comprehensive. 5 The efficiency of the gunnery training proposed in TC 17-12-5 October 1974 can be increased by teaching more within existing resource contraints, or by maintaining present proficiency levels at less cost. 6 Gunnery training is one of several means of accomplishing the objectives of gunnery. Potentially less expensive means, such as improved equipment reliability and personnel selection, should be considered.
