It's to do with the close range weapons definitions. Aimer fires gun, loader loads it. So the GPMG has an aimer/loader.

How hard can it be to hunt mines, they just sit there bobbing around in the sea. The biggest problem must be stopping the horse drowning.

Serious hat on. You tend to nominate the mount to engage not the aimer. So it would be "P6 warning shots 100 yards to the left of target ENGAGE". "Check check check" or my fav "Port Battery ENGAGE"

Of course this need to be shouted at the top of the Gunners voice because the expensive microphones and internal comms system is unable to amplify the noise. Gunnery, its all about the noise.

Ah I see, so the Gunnery Officer is the sound effects bloke who shouts dagadagadagadaga! While the aimer loader aims and pretends to load the GPMG is a warry stylie?
