After giving this thread some thought and reading the responses of those who have actually been in tanks I have decided I would probably elect for Naval service.

 

Walk the dinosaur.

Reminds me of all the times The_Chieftain talked about being a tall dude driving a tank in the NA meet and greets. XD

Driver.

Steering some multi-ton mass of treads and metal seems too cool to pass up.

Definitely wouldn't want to be the TC. Poking out of the hatches to do your job is just asking for trouble.

It ain't fun, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.

 

The phrase "name tape defilade" originated with TC's.

 

Unfortunately it is a job requirement of anyone with FiST responsibilities; you can't see planes from the open-protected.

That is because in this game, the idiot sits on the front slope of the tank trying to catch the incoming rounds himself.

Well that's noble of him isn't it ?

I pity him even more.

Historically, did the radiomen have any responsibilities beyond operating the radio?  

 

Bow MG gunner, extra hand for breakin' track and punchin' tube.

 

Replacement for driver, loader, or gunner, in a pinch ...

 

All-around go-fer ...

I wanna be a radio man in a KV-5. :)

 

Naw, driving a tank sounds fun.

With all the mention of the KV-5 and the radioman has everyone seen the latest 8-bit tales?  (Also I know I said gunner but if it was going to be a KV-5 I think driver would be more fun. Just run over everything.  8) )

This is a cool, informative, interesting post which I upvoted for awesomeness. Unfortunately all I could think of while I read it was:

 

Form feet and legs!

Form arms and body!

And I'll form the head!

 

Voltron!

There's something to this.  Frankly, you just cannot beat a good crew.

 

My gunner was AMAZING - probably the best in the company, the driver had all his shit in one sack, and my loader was also the company FAC; so we clicked pretty well.
