Summary - 14067_181
Figure 6-18.–The Mk 75 gun system, general configuration. The gun mount crew consists of the mount captain, two  loaders,  and  the  safety  observer. The mount captain is stationed in the ammunition- handling room at the gun control panel (GCP). It is the mount captain's responsibility to set the gun up for the desired mode of operation, then monitor it, in case of a malfunction. In case of a malfunction or misfire, the mount  captain  supervises  and  directs  the  corrective action. The two loaders are stationed in the ammunition- handling room during loading and unloading operations. Their  primary  duties  are  to  load  and  unload  the  gun,  clear misfires, and assist in corrective maintenance. Although the actual loaders may be Gunner's Mates (GMGs), you may be stationed in the handling room to assist in breaking out the ammunition for loading. The  safety  observer  is  stationed  topside,  near  the  gun. It is the responsibility of the safety observer to monitor the gun and the area around the gun for any unsafe condition. The safety observer is in direct contact with the mount captain. HOT-GUN  CREW LEARNING OBJECTIVE: Define the duties of a hot-gun crew. As is true of all mechanical devices, guns, too, are susceptible to malfunctions. In the case of a gun system, however, you are also dealing with large quantities of propellant and high explosives. When a gun misfires, either the casualty must be corrected quickly or the round removed from the gun chamber and disposed of over the side. A hot gun is a gun that has fired a sufficient number of rounds in a defined period of time and reaches a temperature that could cook off the round in the chamber. And should the gun misfire  while  in  the  hot-gun  condition,  clearing  the gun quickly becomes a very high priority. An inbore explosion  is  a  catastrophic  event  and  should  be avoided at all cost. As a member of the hot-gun clearing crew, you will assist the Gunner's Mates in clearing the misfired round from the gun. They will actually remove the round from 6-22
