re: Russia Unveils New Main Battle Tank, Among Other Things - Darth_Vader
[quote]The military people can clarify, but do we even have tank battles anymore? [/quote] The last big one was back in the First Gulf War in 1991. Now if we were to go to war in Europe against Russia, there would be huge tank battles....

[quote]I think they are on to something with this automated tank turret. Just a matter of time before we have drone tanks on the battlefield, and this may be the first step. [/quote] There's still the problem of the auto-loader system and the inherent disadvantages it has to a human loader. ...

[quote]Why didn't they move the range closer to the barracks? That seems stupid to have to have to walk that far whenever you want to practice shooting....or at least they could have provided you with busses so you could spend more time there. [/quote] I could see this suggestion being made to m...

[quote]Sure they will, and that's why the Pentagon has hired the Rand corporation to do a study to make sure the standards are "combat relevant." Here's a prediction for you, the study will show that the standards are not combat relevant and they will be lowered. [/quote] I don't remember all the...

[quote]You'll never have a clue about the relief felt when finishing the ruck march during the EFMB if you've never been around it or tried it. It's the last thing to do in the entire process. The fact that she made it means she can wear the badge and never go through that again. It might have been ...

[quote]Did everyone miss the part where it says the trial culminates in a 12 mile march? There was other shite prior to the march she had to do. [/quote] At the end of our road marches we had to do things like set up bivouac, set up perimeter defense, defend against assault or assault a mock ene...

re: Female Captain struggles to finish 12 Mile Foot March - Darth_Vader
[quote]I'll defer to your experience. Marching is our thing. 12 miles with a 70lb ruck (if accurate) seems like a decent feat. [/quote] Not really. Any basic trainee buck private has (or had) to do that and more just to keep from being reprocessed back to the beginning or shipped home. Like I sa...

[quote]. I'm Navy and haven't had the pleasure of a long march, but it seems like she did something that the vast majority of soldiers who think they're fit couldn't pull off.[/quote] Don't know what the standard is nowadays, but when I went through 19Deta OSUT (basic training) in 1988, we had to...

[quote]People today feel that modern warfare should be like going to the target range. We've been spoiled by Desert Storm and subsequent wars. The fact is that your opponent has a brain and it works just as well as you. There will be losses on both sides. [/quote] Very good point. ...

[quote] I agree, and think that it would fully turn into "LOOK AT WHAT WE ARE DOING WITH THIS HAND" while building up something bigger in the other hand[/quote] If the Russians did make a move and attacked Europe, it would be over long before we could even get in on the fight. As it stands now, ...

re: Russia Unveils New Main Battle Tank, Among Other Things - Darth_Vader
I started this thread thinking that Russia was an emerging threat and we'd have about 10 years before having to face a real threat from them. However, after doing further research into just how scaled back NATO is now. I'd say that if Russia were to muster it's full strength and attack Europe, They'...
