A day in gunnery

Soldiers from Company D, 1st Battalion, 64th Armor Regiment "Desert Rogues," 2nd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, sit and wait their turn to take out an M1A2SEP Abrams tank to fire the first engagement of the night portion of Gunnery Table V here at Red Cloud Range, Dec. 6. The Rogue company is currently conducting Gunnery Table V, the practice phase before the final qualification phase, Gunnery Table VI. Table V is very similar to Table VI and consists of numerous targets and maneuvers, where the crew attempts to qualify on the vehicle. (U.S. Army photo by Sgt.

  • Tank crew members from Company C, 1st Battalion, 64th Armor Regiment, "Desert Rogues," 2nd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, are in motion around their M1A2SEP Abrams Tank in preparation for their attempt to qualify during the day portion of the Gunnery Table VI here at Red Cloud Range, Dec. 12. Table VI is a culminating event, which results in the certification of crews who've proven they are combat ready and proficient at the operation and maneuvering of their tank and its weapon systems. The Cyclone Company, has been out in the field for the last month conducting Tables II-V in preparation for Table VI. The Cyclones were the last tank company within the 2nd ABCT that still needed to complete the gunnery. With the Army's recent publicized intent to decrease the size of the force, it is well known that the 2nd ABCT is slated to be deactivated. This in turn means that this may very well be one of the last times a tank designated to the 2nd ABCT is fired. (U.S. Army photo by Sgt. Richard Wrigley, 2nd ABCT, 3rd ID, Public Affairs NCO)
