Stripes Logo

The United States has the most powerful armed forces in the world. Three army corps stand ready to defend Western Europe from the red horde poised across the Iron Curtain. Armoured troops’ powerful M60 Patton tanks or state of the art M1 or IPM1 Abrams tanks, mechanized infantry mounted in reliable M113 personnel carriers, and light infantry of the 82nd Airborne all stand ready to stop the red tide.

The M247 is fitted with fully-stabilized twin 40mm Bofors anti-aircraft guns and with a search and track radar designed to track aircraft out to a range of 40km. The Sergeant York is also fitted with a laser-rangefinder and digital fire control system. This was all housed in a new turret mounted on the hull of a M48A5 Patton medium tank.

The M247 Sergeant York is a controversial weapons system with plenty of armchair commentators (both in the 1980's and today) sharing opinions about it's performance. Separate the opinions and hype from the facts as Tom Farrier (Retired US Air Force command pilot and Sergeant York 'target') shares his thoughts about being shot down during simulated combat.
