Is it true when you are being trained as a tank driver, you are locked in a tank in the dark for 24 hours and then required to operate it perfectly doing only your duties once that 24 hours is up in order to pass?

this is what I was told, i'm just wondering if it is true or not?

Hello This is Ssgt Ramos of E trp 2/3 ACR out of Fort Bliss Texas 79916. When I went through driver's training at Fort Knox, Kentucky, I did not experience any of that.

I initially trained as an M60A3 tanker, and transitioned to M1 later, never heard of that.
