Re: Your limited entry just tanked, what now?

My unit (DSI) follow similar procedures as German, French, and Belgian units like RAID and GSG. The main difference is we are a combined police and military unit, formed from members from both backgrounds, and in other EU countries units almost always are either military OR police. Yes, I understan...

I've typed 3 responses to your question/discussion now, but deleted them again, because if I want to explain our routines, tactics etc. I would be giving away sensitive information.

Re: Your limited entry just tanked, what now?

The discussion is what I'm aiming for. I want people to have to think the concept through. I was taught in the Army that folks that do what we do, need to be able to think outside the box. You can't rely on the overall commander to know what's going on in front of you in time to formulate a reaction...

Re: Your limited entry just tanked, what now?

If there is a prepared enemy who door ambushes the team and you cannot conduct a limited without exposing yourself. Any team should have failed entry procedures OR contested entry procedures. That's what I wanted to see. As in, do you grenade it? Do you back off? Do you use an alternate or secondar...

Re: Your limited entry just tanked, what now?

I didn't read it until now. But regarding you post: Its quite a dilemma. If you had enough intel about your opposition you wouldn't get into the ambush in the first place. So lets assume you aren't aware of the enemy location but you do have some reliable information regarding enemy strength in a g...

Your limited entry just tanked, what now?

So, your limited/stealth/deliberate entry just went south, BIG time. Do you fight through or draw back? Well, that all depends on your mission goals. Are you gathering intel? Is there a HVT or hostages? Serving a warrant or military objective? I was taught, in the U.S. Army, that if you're dealing w...

Re: Use of Force and Legality

"In short, the use of force in self defence, or in defence of a third party, must be 'reasonable' in the circumstances. The question of what amounts to a reasonable use of force often turns on whether the amount of force used is proportionate to the perceived threat. Basically, unless you genuinely...

Re: The Fairbairn-Sykes Fighting Knife

Since I was introduced to the Karambit in 1984, in southern California, by a Filipino Arnis master, I guess that I predate the "hype". I tend to wander off down into my memories of the Army when I'm making comments in here. Not every technique that I share in here is a technique that I teach, curren...
