15 steps?  Dude, as a gunner, all you need to do are two things: First, get in range.  Second, shoot when told ;D

(Sorry, couldn't resist, and worse yet, I don't have an answer for you)
:salute:

Are you talking about the 15 steps to Battle Procedure?

Because if you are there wasn't an acronym I could use but thinking it through by logical sequence always worked well.

IE: I can't do anything without being told what I may be doing ( Receive Initial Wng O) follow the steps from there such as OK I now know what I might be doing so lets take a look at where I might be doing it (Conduct quick map study and time estimate).. See where I am going with this?

Again this is only if you are talking about steps to battle Procedure

Same principal would apply my friend...

You can't shoot if you haven't been told you will shoot (Wng O)
And now that you might shoot what type of shoot wil it be ( Method of Engagement)
Where will the shoot hit (Trajectory)
etc etc etc

That's how I learned it as well, we also had this little beauty for the must orders.

When-    Wng O
Anne-    Ammo
Bleeds-  Bearing
Eat-      Elevation
Mary-    Method or FFE

it has a certain charming vulgarity.
When-    Wng O
Apples-    Ammo
Bruise-  Bearing
Eat-      Elevation
Meat-    Method or FFE

There, a bit less vulgar?  ;D
