I already posted this in the Wargames/AWOL subforum, but I think BoB system players will enjoy this as much:
I didn't discover this. It was posted today on Reddit, here:
A little insight from the comment section:
One funny bit about this that you probably won't catch is the "Driver advance over the A set" part.
Tanks have intercoms for talking to the crew, and the commander has access to one or more radios. You have a "Press to Talk" (PTT) switch on your headset cable that goes in 2 directions - one way for intercom, the other way for radio. Another switch, usually on the wall of the turret, determines which radio the "RAD" switch transmits on ("A Set" - usually squadron frequency, or "B Set" - usually Regiment or sometimes Brigade)
So if he is telling the driver to advance over the A set, it means he pushed the PTT the wrong way and sent the command to his driver to the entire squadron. And because the driver can't hear the radio, he's doing whatever he wants (like most dirt squirrels).
Every crew commander has done this at least once, and we all have funny stories about remarks meant for the crew going out over the air.....
Mmmm... cheese sandwich.
