GUNNERY SENSE - Some Hints for Air Gunners

Issued by
Training Division, Bureau of Aeronautics, United States Navy
August 1942


On beginning training as an air gunner, you can soon find out the details of your job by looking over the syllabi of the gunnery training school. There is no need to tell you what an important part you will play in the operation of our dive bombers, scouts, torpedo, and observation planes. What you will want to know, however, is what makes a crack air gunner, the man who can always give more than he gets, who paints enemy flags on his plane, who can give newcomers useful information, and who is much sought after by flying officers. This pamphlet attempts to show, step by step, how such men are made.


How To Be the Oldest Living Gunner.

  1. Learn to recognize instantly all types of aircraft, and be able to judge their speed, direc¬tion, angle, and distance.
  2. Know your guns and turret thoroughly—how they work and how to keep them working.
  3. Know all about how to use tracer.
  4. Practice and keep on practicing. Then practice some more.
