The Tank Gunnery and Missile Tracking System TGMTS was evaluated as a device for measuring tank gunnery performance. To enhance its performance assessment capabilities, the TGMTS was paired with a microcomputer. The computer-augmented TGMTS was used in assessing the performance of 18 M60A3 tank commander-gunner pairs on 27 gunnery engagements. The computer-augmented TGMTS arrangement permitted precise measurement of tank commander and gunner behaviors in engaging realistic threat targets. Potential users for the TGMTS in assessing gunner performance are discussed including gunnery qualification, personnel assignment, diagnostic testing, and evaluation of gunnery training programs.
