If employed properly in a support gunner role the saw gunner ends up carrying more and running more than anyone else.

Often support guns are deployed on the flanks of the line of battle .. which means when contact happens the gunner has to make a mad rush to get set up on the flank.

You want your gunners on the flanks so that they can suppress while the formation moves up without worrying about someone walking in front of your fire.

If you put gunners in the middle of the line.. the width of arc will get smaller and smaller as your guys advance.. and you will get B on B happening.

Once your guys are assaulting you can swing your fire to the rear of the enemy to provide cut off if you are deployed on the flank
