Under orders? You were ordered to open preventive fire?Yes.
Only if stones were thrown at you?No, there were no people there then. In the middle of the night, 2:00-3:00 AM, Fire at what the gunner detected as garbage.
Machine-gun fire?Coaxial machine-gun. There were no "mags" in tanks yet, I think. The loader didn't have a "mag". I'm a loader and I didn't have a "mag"; we took it off beforehand.
So it wouldn't be taken down?Yes. The tank commander had a "mag"but I don't think he fired it. Maybe.
