What Army Tankers Go Through In Boot Camp | Boot Camp

Published on 2 weeks ago

We got an inside look at how the United States Army trains tankers and cavalry scouts during its 22-week One Station Unit Training. Chief video correspondent Graham Flanagan went inside the Armor School in Fort Benning, Georgia, where he observed soldiers at various stages of training.
After completing 10 weeks of basic combat training, soldiers go through 12 more weeks of advanced instruction. Future tankers learn how to drive, fire, and maintain the M1 Abrams battle tank, which has been the Army's primary tank since the Gulf War. Soldiers also learn how to load the tank's ammunition rounds, which range in weight from about 30 to 60 pounds.
Along with tankers, the Armor School trains cavalry scouts, whose mission is to perform reconnaissance and gather intelligence in the field and report to leadership, who may decide to utilize armored weapons and vehicles based on the scouts' reports. Cavalry scouts also train with anti-armor weapons like grenade launchers and rocket launchers.

The girl probably said she doesn’t feel safe because people in a tank never know when an anti tank missile could destroy them. They could be driving and out of nowhere, a javelin missiles destroys them and they immediately die

Joined the military in 1986 and I never regretted it. my MOS was 19K10 but I did so many other jobs as well. Being a "Tanker" was the best job I had.

Fun Fact:
Lieutenant Colonel (later General) George S Patton, was the first officer to be assigned to an armored corps. He later commanded the 3rd Army in WW2

After seeing how the anti tank weapons are destroying tanks in Ukraine I would not choose that speciality if I were in the military.

I was watching this as a tanker that finished my training last May or so. Surprised to see how much they've already changed small things. My company was the first to visit the armor museum. And it was at the end of our training, which was 27 weeks not 22.

Tank crew in all periods of history have to be some of the humblest people deep inside. They know that the tank offers high protection against small arms but the act of dying in one is still scary AF.

It is too bad that political correctness insanity overrides the purpose of the military mission. Putting women in a tanker crew is just plain idiocy. No bathroom, intense stress in a battle situation, and, if a crew survives a hit and are taken prisoner, the men are executed and the women used. The common sense facts are denounced only because it goes against political correctness. We are in trouble.

No one in the beginning said they want to be in a tank because they wanted to protect their country. "Just want to blow sh..up all day"

The narrator is meh, just a kinda stereotypical "I have a deep voice, but don't really say actually informative things" type of narrator you'll find in many current documentaries. The video is most interesting for its footage and hearing the soldiers' commentary

i dont know how they do it now, but BCT its basically the same for everyone, tank goes elsewhere after basic, its all depends where you going, tanks crew are expected to be an infantryman outside a tank and a operator inside one, atleast thats what i was told by a 1SG from the 75th, this is from the old days from went women werent allow in combat operation, women are a distraction, on the work site they are a welcoming distraction, in the field of battle, distractions kills

Self loading? This is why m1a1 was a failed over budget project. Even the T64 had a self loader meaning less personal needed

boot camp does not consist of doing what your job will be later in the army that's your AIT. Now some of them are conjoined together but they show no boot camp anything here just the AIT part of the training.

For some reasons these cavalry scouts seems very respectful of others like taking very professionally and repeated use of "sir" compared to other armed forces.

So which tank is better? M1A2 sep3 abrams or the Germans leopard 2A6? And why is the Abrams main gun a smoothbore? Wouldn’t a rifled bore fair better with accuracy?
