Abstract : A strategy is proposed for minimizing the device-based training time required to prepare armor crews of the U.S. Army National Guard for on-tank training and live-fire gunnery qualification. Using two devices (i.e., the Conduct-of-Fire Tramer (COFT) and Abrans Full-Crew Interactive Simulation Trainer (AFIST), efficiency is achieved by training only gunnery engagements subjected to later live-fire evaluation, focusing on those engagements not performed to standard, and allocating training time to crews that need it most, as determined through pretesting. Guidance is provided to support strategy implementation at the company level and the conduct of research needed for future strategy refinement.
