F-95: Arm-and-Hand Signals

Previous: F-94: Oral

F-95. Arm-and-hand signals are an effective fire control method when the gunner can see the leader. All gunners must know the standard arm-and-hand signals. The leader gets the gunner’s attention and points to the target. When the gunner returns the READY signal, the leader commands FIRE.
