Sitting position

4-7. The sitting position is the most stable firing position for the M136 AT4. In this position, the arms are placed on the legs for support. Depending on his physique, the firer can use either of two versions of the sitting position, both of which are suitable for engaging stationary targets.

Basic Sitting Position

4-8. Sit on your buttocks while facing the target, and spread your feet a comfortable distance apart. Lean forward and place the backs of your upper arms on your knees, avoiding bone-to-bone contact or elbows inside of thighs (Figure 4-5).

Modified Sitting Position
