  3. You can tell from the placement of the charging handle that ze Germans have little experience in night fighting. No room for lasers and white lights.
  4. While the rest of eurosphere gets the 416, the Bundies just had to be different.

    Combat Footage

    "There was a complex attack against the FOB in early June 2012. Insurgents utilized a local truck packed with 1,500–2,000 pounds of explosives; a suicide bomber detonated his truck bomb on the southern edge of the base, breaching the perimeter and causing significant damage to the base's buildings. The dining hall annex was leveled and the main DFAC (Dining Facility) sustained severe roof damage in the blast. Moments later, ten insurgents entered the breach armed with rifles, machine guns, grenades, and rockets; each bomber wore ACU digital military camouflage uniforms while one wore an ANA military uniform and most wore explosive suicide vests. The attackers were first engaged by two Navy SEALs driving by the DFAC in a Toyota truck, and then by a five-man team consisting of three helicopter mechanics and two vehicle mechanics; who blocked the attackers advance from two directions. After a 7-minute firefight, US service members repelled the attack, killing all ten insurgents. With the last insurgent dressed in an ANA uniform being killed in a ditch. The first insurgent to fire shot a RPG rocket into the front of a Toyota truck hitting the front right bumper but did not explode. Then a Navy SEAL riding in the truck rolled down his window and shot the insurgent. Next two insurgents came around the second wall and were shot by two helicopter mechanics. Two base contractors were killed in the attack when the DFAC annex collapsed, and a US Soldier died of a fragmentation wound to his face from a hand grenade a few days later. Although initially downplayed in the media, in July 2012 both Long War Journal and al Jazeera published an unedited attack video released by the Taliban.[8] Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid claimed that an airplane on an airstrip at the base was destroyed and that 'tens' of foreign forces were killed and wounded in the attack. The Taliban later released the video of the attack, showing the attackers practicing in Southeast Afghanistan, taking their photos, the group leader showing his shooting skills by shooting 2 machine guns and the suicide bomber in the truck."

    Not combat, but what it feels like to be in the middle of an artillery strike.

    Obviously we need Overmatch™ at point blank range. You heard it here first, Point Blank™. The newest thing the Army didnt know they needed. We could sell them a 5.56 version of this: https://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2015/04/30/m198-the-cartridge-that-should-not-have-been/

    *Highly GRAPHIC* Close range ambush of Turkish troops by Kurdish fighters. Illustrates the dangers of fatigue and exertion on combat awareness. The Kurds waited for the Turks to climb this rocky hill before ambushing them at pointblank range. Also note the tactics in the flanking of a PKM team around the boulder towards the end of the video.

    Definitely not a valid antipersonnel technique for armored combat

    A thread to post and discuss/critique enemy and friendly TTPs ISIS in urban fighting in Mosul. Infiltration through urban structures via breaching interior walls. Seems like they're copying western urban fighting TTPs or playing alot rainbow 6 siege. Either way these guys are far more sophisticated than AQ fighters the USMC faced in 2004 in same city.

    The Suppressive Effect of Small Arms

    Not sure about apologist but Im definitely pro belt-fed at the squad and fire team level. Since this was mainly a suppression thread under what context do you want to see all IARs? At what level do you put a SAW?
