04 January 2008 - 05:02 AMwell obviously the ACU pattern cant suck because the Army uses it. They arent going to dont the old stuff for ACU if it were crap. But from what Ive heard, ACU isnt meant to conceal you, its meant to break up your bodys outline against the environment and it disrupts the enemys aim when they are shooting at you...
but i think the multicam works the best, but all of the pictures for multicam are somewhat biased. They never show multicam next to woodland cam next to actually woods, its always in like a dead field or something like that but id go with multicam if i were to choose.
I hate to chime in on this bu take it from a guy in the Army with a job where blending in is kind of important. ACUs suck. That multi-cam stuff is better and I wish they would have gone with that instead of this crap we have right now.
03 January 2008 - 09:54 PM1st of all, what's a tactical nuke?
And to defend a trench, try to hide in them, popping up and shooting once in a while, until they forget about you. Then, when they attack, pop up
and slaughter them. Try not to get into trenches;they are death traps.
Actually trenches are not death traps if manned propperly with a good commander in charge. That's why in WW I they brought the war to a stailmate. Then the Tank was introduced and used to lead regular infantry toward the trenches where they would then begin to enter systematically in manner much like other battledrills where they would begin clearing the trenches. Casualties were sometimes high but such is the cost of wars like that.
31 December 2007 - 12:18 PMNow I am going to have to agree with those of you that think it is a bad tactic. Why?! because a force of 10 that plans their attack and moves in cautously can do whay 100 that are just charging can do. The advantages being- Less causualties, which can free up those forces for other missions, a better outcme, better reutation, and an easier force to handle.
Your 100% right. This "Steam-roller" Strategy as General George S. Patton calls it is a bad tactic when you are strategically superior. But when you are strategically inferrior, but numerically superior this a tactic that can work in your favor. Lets break away from paintball for a minute. If you look at two of our nations most bloody conflicts where you will find some of America's greatest strategic minds you will find that the victors often diverted to this strategy for at least one battle. In the Civil War it was Gen. U. S. Grant's primary strategy. The Union was numerically and industrially surperior and won because of this tactic over the Confederates even though they had the greater strategic minds like Robert E. Lee, "Stonewall" Thomas Jackson, and many others. And in WWII General Eisenhower used this tactic at the Normandy landings (in conjunction with others strategies) and General Patton used it at the Battle of the Bulge. So yes, while it is a less desirable tactic, don't just throw it out. It can be effective you just have to be responsible when using it. Remember a wise general is one who wins before the battle, studying the field and your opposing general is key to your success and victory.
