Lost "Safety Awareness"

While driving as troop (4 tanks) in line along a road and engaging targets to the side on the MTR, I've been hit in the turret of my M4 by .30 cal rounds.

Buddy behind me was traversing and lost "safety awareness", so his gunner pressed the coax MG button as he passed the turret over the back of my tank about 100 yards away.

Sprayed pretty good and I was shoulders out of the cupola and ducked pretty freakin fast. Sure left a puddle under my seat, but other than that, nobody got hurt.

The board of inquiry and paperwork were some painful though...

  1. I suspect the paperwork was worse for the other guy :)
