    Yes, we can do that sort of thing. Its good fun but all according to how much you fire it can work out to be expensive.

    Actually a brew can save a guy in an armoured vehicle; when I was in Astan a Viking command vehicle was involved in a 'dispute' of the kind where words had run out. The vehicle was not at the very front of the action but within 'reach.' The action had been going on for a while.
    The bloke 'up top' bend down to take his tea from a multi-fuel burner fastened to the inside of the turret. Just as he hunkered down inside the turret, an RPG round hit the Viking.
    I be the turret gunner is a believer in a brew

    This was a fairly common scenario; roll up to some fortified compounds in the middle of a flat desert and engage the foe within. As I mentioned, there is not use for the command Viking to be closest to the action.
    Turret gunner was just for defence of vehicle - not for suppressive fire for the squaddies.
    I guess you would have had to be involved in such an action, which was fairly normal to understand. Trust me; no doubt at ALL, where the action is nor where the AK and RPG fire is comming from.
    The 'no front lines,' I can relate to.
    Walking in the Green Zone in Helmand and staying for hours in corn fields with zero visibility is as close to a brown trouser moment as one can come.
