Which Navy rate would fire the ship mounted weapons in a combat situation?
- RICKLv 76 months ago
With help from fire control technicians
Plus other rates might man 50 cals

if you are talking about CIWS or the missiles, thats mostly FCs who man the control panel. GMs would handle the smaller stuff.Source(s): DH was an FC and has pushed the button in a combat situation, not just for training

all depends just which weapons you're firing.
You have GM's Gunners Mates, , FT's Fire control Tech's. hell, BM's can man fire hoses to repel boarders and small craft trying to approach.
