E-23. Mission Command Systems and inertial position navigation systems allow today’s tanks the mobility to arrive at virtually any designated location with greater speed and accuracy than ever before. Use of visual signals and the single channel ground airborne radio system (SINCGARS) facilitates rapid and secure communication of orders and instructions. This capability allows tank crews to mass the effects of their weapon systems quickly while remaining dispersed to limit the effects of the tanks, armored vehicles, and fortifications using the main gun, and to suppress enemy positions, personnel, and light-armored targets with the tank’s machine guns.
