(b) The gunner will use a 5- to 7-round burst for this engagement.

(c) The gunner will observe the beaten zone and make adjustments as necessary to hit the target.

(d) Upon completion of Task 2, the gunner will await further instructions.

(3) Task 3, Engage Stationary Target From a Stationary Firing Position.

(a) From the initial firing location, the gunner will engage an 850-meter stationary vehicle target.

(b) The gunner will use a 5- to 7-round burst for this engagement.

(c) The gunner will observe the beaten zone and make adjustments as necessary to hit the target.

NOTE: On command from the grader, the crew will move the carrier to the third predetermined firing location, load one 28-round belt, and conduct Task 6.

(6) Task 6, Engage a Stationary and a Moving Target From a Mounted Stationary Firing Position.

(a) From the third predetermined firing location, the gunner will engage one 600-meter personnel target and one 800-meter moving vehicle target from a stationary firing position.

(b) The gunner will use a 5- to 7-round burst for this engagement.

(c) The gunner will observe the beaten zone and make adjustments as necessary to hit the targets.

(d) Upon completion of Task 6, the gunner will await further instructions.

NOTE: From the same firing location as Task 6, the crew will be placed in a chemical environment and be required to go to MOPP4.

(7) Task 7, React in Chemical Environment.

(a) Upon command, the crew will be required to react to a chemical agent.

(b) Upon completion of Task 7, the gunner will await further instructions.

NOTE: To accomplish Task 8 through Task 10, the gunner will load one 84-round belt of ammunition.

(8) Task 8, Engage Stationary Target From a Mounted Stationary Firing Position While in MOPP4.

(a) From the same firing location as Task 6, the gunner will engage a stationary target at a range of 500 meters from a mounted stationary firing position while in MOPP4.

(b) The gunner will use a 5- to 7-round burst for this engagement.

(c) The gunner will observe the beaten zone and make adjustments as necessary to hit the target.
