Hehe Radio guy in an arty - good one. That made me chuckle.

But probably still easier than a loader in an arty - i mean manually loading 203mm shells - outch :arta:

I voted for gunner, i guess driver is fun, but also one of the most dangerous places to sit in a tank (landmines, and frontal shots to the lower glacis)

driver... because I was tank driver... coolest place to be always something to do, driving is such a fun... most comfortable seat in a tank :)
gunner... 99% of the time nothing to do most of his time he look  through scoop observing the same area again again and again... if something happen it is extremly quick over
loader no thanks standing the whole time or sitting on the most uncomfortable seat in a tank

Loader or TC... only two guy's with unblocked escape route.

Or even better, in a Think tank several miles (Preferably countries) away from the front!

It depends SO MUCH on the situation: Most tanks in the world are, in fact, NOT IN COMBAT!
And in peacetime there can be little doubt that the least boring and most comfortable crew position is the driver's.

Being the first to vote for the Loader job. Just stuffing shells into the gun doesn't seem to be that complicated. Plus, after you did that for a few months I imagine that those 20 kg shells are not that heavy after all.

When loading shells on most cannons, you can get your fingers cut off if you're not careful enough...I warned you! :D

Not to brag, but I have been in all the positions, and all were fun at times. Oh yeah, loader is not a no skill position, since it requires strength and timing to keep a high rate of fire. I personally enjoyed being a driver the most, but being a gunner was a blast too!

A machine gunner in a TIGER to use that MG42 and to kick the asses of those who dare to stand in the front of the tank
