Great tactics. Also, to get more in depth, check out the manuals here:

Sorry, long link is long.

Start with FM 7-8. Its your basic Infantry rifle platoon.

There's another great trick I've learned with Air Force STT's (Special Tactis Teams-yes, there are Air Force ground pounders. And they are particularly mean. :panzer: )

It's called leapfrogging, and it takes some skill to get down. Basically, it's an alternative to a banzai charge, but one that works a lot better, and the only people that get hit are the ones down range.

The leapfrog only works in one situation. Basically, you need to have an enemy position that you want to take, and a stretch of ground with some cover at a few intervals. Send two of your men to the first cover location, with their butts down, while you and your team light up the defenders. Then repeat the process, until everyone is at the desired cover. After you've moved to your first cover, it's advisable to hunker down for a few moments and let your SAW gunner convince your opponents that they want to retreat. Once the enmy again has their heads down, do it all over again.

Of course, you need to make sure you aim high, above your advancing teammates. It's bad enough to get out by friendly fire, getting nailed in the back of the head or the butt is just inhumane.

So, if you ever use it, remember you got it from a "Chair Force" officer. :P

Thanks, that's very helpful info. I already knew some of it but it helps. I haven't gone paintballing yet but am looking forward to using them in Skirmish.

I learned the same thing at SERE school, not as an attack tactic of course but as a way to evade.
Freedom has a taste to those who fight and almost die that the protected will never know.
