Abstract:

Individual and crew tests are necessary to support XM1 tank gunnery goals and to reduce ammunition expenditures by assuring proficiency before progression to full crew performance exercises. This research was focused on developing diagnostic tests for individual crewman and crew performance evaluations for crew drills that are administerable at platoon level within four hours and do not involve live fire. Nineteen individual tests were developed and remediation guidance was developed that is centered on immediate correction of specific deficiencies. For crew performance, the 14 Crew Drills contained in ARI Research Product 79-17, A Prototype Crew Drills Training Program for XM1 Tank Gunnery Company Commanders Manual, were analyzed and three drills were selected that best represent the range of gunnery behavior. Tests were developed for those three drills and remediation guidelines were prepared that focus on crew performance. Supporting material for platoon leaders and tank commanders who serve as scorers was also developed. The testing material to be issued in the unit is included as an appendix.
