Clean the old-fashioned way.

Crewmen, newfangled devices and shortcuts are not the way to clean your tank's gun tube. In fact, they're a good way to cause damage that'll shorten the life of that gun tube.

Some soldiers think it's best to use high-pressure water or a steam cleaner to make the inside of a gun tube sparkle. They're wrong.

Using any kind of water for cleaning will corrode the gun tube. Water also gets into the main gun system, causing corrosion and damage to the breech mechanism, bore evacuator components, and firing circuits.
