    Isn't that a little unwise to put your infantry so close to the muzzle of the tank gun? With the Leopard 2 they had to be further away an definitely not in front of the idler wheel because of the blast. Also, since tanks attracts enemy fire you didn't want your own infantry close to the tank.

    Do you have a pic where the tank is actually firing from that position?

    Not with infantry in the neighbourhood, most of the times I was busy with the tank itself Cool But this is a pic of the tank firing at range 6 Bergen (DEU) were you can see the fireball and blast. It blew all the gravel away.

    Are these pictures you have taken?

    The pic in question appears to be taken from a drone... but being a still image you can't tell whether the troops were there using the cover of the road and the tank is sitting there in position too or if the tank just moved there to support an assault on that built up area in front of them and would immediately move forward... but standard practice for built up areas is for troops to go first which would be the opposite of that.

    It might be that the people on the ground are in direct radio contact with the tank which is using the road to provide a semi hull down position where it can use its thermals to look for targets and can use machine guns for direct fire support.

    I would assume with the kit set buildings in front of them they wont be firing live main calibre rounds.

    Certainly not a place to be when a modern tank fires a full power round like HE or APFSDS rounds.

    The muzzle is naked. You should be safe from the effects of the overpressure standing at least a meter behind the muzzle - the space is because the gun reciprocates. Its going to be loud asf though so hope you brought earpros.

    Thanks for sharing... wasn't being snippy...  Embarassed when I re read my post I thought it sounded like a challenge... it was certainly not meant to be.

    I thought if the original pictures were yours that you might remember how the situation developed... ie were the troops already there and the tank pulled up beside them or was the tank already there and the troops arrived.

    As I mentioned the fact that they are facing prefabricated buildings I rather suspect main calibre tank fire was not expected so such a position is not as bad as it looks.

    Being this close to the tank means you can see where his optics are pointed and therefore roughly what he is looking at and your points of references are very similar... ie dead ahead or 11 oclock etc etc for spotting targets and firing points of the enemy... the tank could fire "machine gun support" and use its optics to aide the infantry and in real combat might fire main gun ammo to support the attack if heavy fire appears to be coming from one building, but during this training I suspect main gun ammo would not be fired and if they did they would warn nearby troops.

    I wonder if hearing protection is part of Ratnik 2 or the upcoming Ratnik 3... a set of directional microphones and ear protection would be rather useful in combat to improve situational awareness and protect the troops.
