0352 -  Antitank Missile Gunner

             Pvt- Sgt

The 0352 Antitank Missile Gunner is the primary MOS for enlisted infantry Marines with specialized training in the employment of antitank missile weapons systems.

The Antitank Missile Gunner is responsible for the tactical employment of the M220E4 TOW2 Weapon System, M98A1 Javelin Weapons System, Anti-Armor Operations, and Tactical Vehicle Operations. They provide medium and heavy anti-armor fire in support of the infantry battalion, LAR battalion, tank battalion, and the MAGTF. They are located in the anti-armor platoon within the weapons company of the infantry battalions and LAR battalions, the scout and antitank platoons of the tank battalions; and the scout and antitank platoon in H&S Co 4th Tank Battalion (MARFORRES).

Marines in this MOS are found in mechanized units throughout the Marine Divisions.  They are specialists in identifying armor assets and ground-portable anti-armor weapons systems such as the M41A4 Saber System which fires the Tube-launched, Optically-tracked, Wire-guided (TOW) Missile and the M98A2 Javelin weapons system.  As the Marine Corps continues to phase out the Saber system and M220 systems which fire the TOW missile, 0352's will become more specialized in the use of the Javelin weapons system.  The Javelin can be configured to fire in top-down and direct-fire modes for neutralizing armor, obstacles, fortifications, and low-flying aircraft.  Noncommissioned Officers are assigned as Gunners and squad leaders.

Marines will enter this MOS as an entry level MOS and be designated by the MOS 0300.  After they graduate Basic Infantry Marine Course, Infantry Training Battalion, School Of Infantry, Camp Pendleton, California or Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, they will move onto specific antitank training. Antitank Marines earn their MOS after they complete the Infantry Anti-Tank Missile Gunner Course at School Of Infantry, Camp Pendleton, California or Camp Lejeune, NC.

Prerequisites for this MOS include a GT score of 100 or higher, normal color vision, or vision  of 20/200 correctable to 20/20, passing the initial strength test standards associated with the 0300 MOS, a past driving record appropriate for issue of SF-46 as evidenced by a search of the National Driver Register, and possess the psychological and physiological qualifications required for licensing as a Government Motor Vehicle Operator.
