Re: The Greatest Combat Throw on Record, Skeeter - Paul Kirc

There even is historical evidence of a fighting manual for knights in single combat presenting the option of unscrewing the pommelnut from ones sword to throw at the enemy. how serious this was is very questionable, since the tang should have been peened over the pommelnut. I don't remember exactly...

Re: Religion and Warfare

What about if that religion applauds martyrdom--is this better or worse for a religious fighting force? I.e. would it just lead to 'suicide tactics' more so than actual tactics? Depends. I'd say that people would fight without a fear of death if that's the case, which can lead to them overcoming ma...

Re: The Better Way to High/Low

For me, it comes back to resources and time. If I have the men to flood with, I can see putting two men to high/low in each direction down a corridor/hallway. If I only have two men to clear a T intersection, I want them going high/low in opposite directions. Again, just me. That makes sense. Every...

I agree :lol:
Footwork is critical, just like in hand to hand combat.

Re: Dealing with 2 deep corners - 1 man entry

doorframe to check or engage one corner while standing (keeping the majority of my body covered from the threat), then quickly revert back behind the threshold, do a 180, crouch then check other corner. Why not peek only your head and scan quickly for one corner and then do an entry focusing on the...

Overpenetration?

"Newbie" questions incoming.
What are the disadvantages of overpenetration?
Where exactly should the operator(s) stop?
(I'm asking this mostly because no one did it before)

Re: Self Closing Doors

Grab a hacksaw, a bushcraft knife and some scrap wood and make some door wedges. Put several in a GP pouch or something and you're set. That and a hoolie in case shit goes bad.

Re: Beach clearing/assault

Then it's your basic movement techniques. Whether you bound, leapfrog, etc. You're trying to get out of this open space. Open space with no real option for breaking contact. It's a meat grinder. Exactly... but what if there is no cover? As if we're assaulting a wide beach? I've also seen this Natio...

It's a "futuristic" VR realistic/milsim FPS.

That's why I'd rather just peek my head for one corner while staying low, go back out immediately and then do an entry focusing on the other corner just to minimize the risk a little bit.

Re: Religion and Warfare

First, we must look at the religion. If it's some hippie shit, then yeah, we all know what would happen. They would be horrible. If it's a religion like, say, Orthodox Christianity, which actually supports fighting as long as it is defensive, yeah, they would probably fight much better than many oth...

Thank you for saying that. I was going to make the same point.
Yeah, but wouldn't that double the firepower? Like, I'd rather have 2 friendlies on 1 tango than 1 on 1.

Re: Dealing with 2 deep corners - 1 man entry

Slice the pie, peek your head in for one corner, if it's clear then do an entry and focus on the other corner. If it's not clear, crouch and peek for the other corner quickly, then do an entry, clearing the hostile corner. If both corners are hostile, don't clear the room, back out, run away, call i...
