    never touched an matador before is not a problem, because you can learn how to arm, aim and fire it in less than an hour. and since you are a matador gunner now, i think you might get to fire it when you go back for your ICT. rem to smile when you shout "1 round away" cos that alot of taxpayer money ending up as smoke. haha....

    as for outfield, i think you will be carrying your SBO, rifle + the dummy matador. like what audere said, in real life, it can only be used once and then most likely you will be carrying the lightest load among your section after that. but in peace time training, of cos you cannot just throw the dummy matador after you pretend to fire it, so must see how your gung ho your superior is?

    203 doesn't have enough armour penetration to deal with anything thicker-skinned than in IFV in direct fire.

    Don't ask me how I know that *returns to my pillow fortress*

    Don't think the M203 is designed for armour penetration right?

    M203 is only useful against light armour vehicle and humans. Only weapon like Law, Matador, 84 etc is useful against armour vehicle. But it doesn't really explode the vehicle. What it do is pierce through the armour and the round inject a high heat into the vehicle internal causing the personal inside to burn to death.

    Back to the TS question. Like a normal infantry, you will be carrying an extra heavy metal bazooka. This super irritating dead weight will cause discomfort to you during your mission. Because you will have your rifle strap and the matador strap sling to your neck. Both will be straining your shoulder. If you need to carry fullpack during mission, then lagi worst. Plus with the matador size, bashing through the forest is a tricky thing. The only consolation is, the 84mm gunner is more shiong than yours.

    man u gonna hate it, I'm one of them as well
    its difficult and a hassle to move around with it... especially during fire and movement. But in terms of accuracy, its far better than LAW. What I like about it was place it on the ground and sit on it.
    No matter how I sling the weapon its pain n pain, maybi I'm tat lousy with it.

    Matador round : expensive
    84mm round : expensive expensive
    ATGM round : very very expensive

    I pray that Matador gunners would be issue a shorter and lighter secondary weapon. Once everything ON, makes you feel super clumsy... problem engaging the target.
