'A general purpose machine gun aimer'
Well, standards are going down.
To be honest thats how its called in the RN these days, the GPMG course is the GPMG aimer/loader course.
It's to do with the close range weapons definitions. Aimer fires gun, loader loads it. So the GPMG has an aimer/loader.
Oh dear, the piddling MCM on left is called USS DEVASTATOR
'Tell the aimer loaders to keep their eyes peeled Chief' doesn't really have the right ring to it.
Is this a new way for the navy to try and keep hold of more bods, you need two people for each firearm?
Well I thought Sunni was referring to the calibre of gun mounted on your yachts these days.
Actually, there are three. Unfortunately the 'general purpose machine gun trigger pullerer' wasn't in the photo.
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.
And never the effect!
