What is meant by, "Never forget that your weapon is made by the lowest bidder"?
User avatar #91 to #86 - yusay (05/09/2013) [-]
Don't assume your weapon won't have problems.
User avatar #89 to #86 - dagold ONLINE (05/09/2013) [-]
You are using a ****** piece of hardware that will jam at the worst moment possible.
User avatar #90 to #89 - ranzoray (05/09/2013) [-]
ah, I see, Thankee
User avatar #92 to #90 - dagold ONLINE (05/09/2013) [-]
Okay, I suppose that was a bit too biased because my M4 loved to jam all the damn time. But the army always goes with the lowest bidder (confirmed by one plug being tampered with can both short out and fix the whole building) and so your equipment is made with cheap parts for low cost.
User avatar #94 to #92 - ranzoray (05/09/2013) [-]
But what is meant by lowest bidder, the contractor that offers the lowest production costs?
User avatar #96 to #94 - dagold ONLINE (05/09/2013) [-]
Essentially yeah. They get bids, and whoever says they will do it for the cheapest gets the job. Cheap work means cheap products, as I'm sure you know
User avatar #97 to #96 - ranzoray (05/09/2013) [-]
Ah, now I understand, now if you don't mind, what is meant by, "if you can't remember, the claymore is pointed at you"?
User avatar #136 to #97 - flemsdfer (05/09/2013) [-]
A claymore is a directional mine with a curve to it that when triggered explodes and fires many steel ball bearings in said direction. Now since the explosion fires one way the backs won't be launching thousands of steel pellets at you to tear your legs off. So it is better to assume the business end is facing you if you don't know entirely rather than think it's not and be wrong, or in short; don't take a 50/50 chance when your legs getting blown off are the risks.
User avatar #99 to #97 - dagold ONLINE (05/09/2013) [-]
I'm not a demo guy, so I'm not entirely sure, but I'm going to assume it means act like it is pointed at you and be cautious. Enemies sometimes sneak in during the night to turn claymores around and aim them at the camp they are supposed to be protecting.

"If the enemy are in range, then so are you"

What if they're using a 12-gauge shotgun and you're using a sniper rifle?
User avatar #124 to #75 - ithinkihaveaids **User deleted account** (05/09/2013) [-]
since when does the BLUFOR have only shotguns and OPFOR have only snipers?
these tips arent made for better gameplay in CoD or BF but as a quide to warfare.

you can have a ****** sniper and a really ****** good shotgunner...lol

if you're in a fight where people are using sniper rifles, you may want to assume that there's another person with a rifle

If all else fails, shoot at the muzzle flashes - the larger ones are the dangerous ones, the smaller ones are infantry.

They will usually draw attention to your hole in various ways such at firing then hiding, shouting, or anything else to taunt the enemy; all of which will be putting your own life at risk.

I always liked Sun Tzu

"On the high ground stand and let the enemy come to you
On the low ground, maneuver to find high ground and force the enemy to come to you
On the death ground, fight"

User avatar #74 to #29 - lightninghedgehog (05/09/2013) [-]
Sun Tzu said that, and i think he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do pal, because HE INVENTED IT!

And how did I say anything other than that?
#105 to #74 - nigglettt (05/09/2013) [-]
When did he disagree with Sun Tzu? All he did was quote him. If anything one can infer that means he would agree.

I think he is. Unless he's trying to be sarcastic and say Sun Tzu wasn't **** because he didn't invent fighting and Chuck Norris did or some ******** .

Hey, its true. No matter what form of combat, the high ground always gives a huge advantage.
User avatar #82 to #37 - dapianoman (05/09/2013) [-]
Why do we use trenches then?
#108 to #82 - tomthehippie (05/09/2013) [-]
That is for defense, and it helps to hide you. How ever, if they are on lower ground and you dig in, then you have a greater advantage. If they have higher ground and you dig in, it does jack **** .

The point I was making was that the ARMY holding the high ground (regardless of weapons used by said army) has an advantage.
#115 to #108 - dapianoman (05/09/2013) [-]
lol. I was bored.

paint skills off the hizzle
#116 to #115 - tomthehippie (05/09/2013) [-]

Kind of the idea. Kinda. Sorta. If you squint while you are looking at it. While drunk or high out of your skull.

Just kidding, but yeah. Mostly we use trenches because it gives you something to put most of your body behind, so that you are a smaller target.

But even then, we really don't use trenches too much any more. We mostly use them for defending camps, and even then, only if its short term. Otherwise we bring in the US Army Engineers and build nice thick tall walls.
User avatar #65 to #37 - ithinkihaveaids **User deleted account** (05/09/2013) [-]
unfortunately no, think of this: 2 Platoons of infantry, the other is down in a valley full of trees (concealment) while the other one is on a bare hill, dose feels if you have played ARMA2 ACE/ACRE PVP.
#110 to #65 - tomthehippie (05/09/2013) [-]
In real life, they would either back up the crest, or dig in, either way being on the hill confers an advantage.

Plus, trees don't offer that great of concealment. Yeah, for the first few minutes they do hide you, but then trees start taking rounds, which can ricochet, or send splinters flying everywhere (which can blind you, or even if you just get a cut, if you are talking a day long battle then it will get infected, and your medic might get shot, any number of ways that can **** you over), plus if you are stuck there long enough a SAW can cut down a tree (and you behind it) pretty damn easily. Then they can throw grenades down at you and possibly knocking down a tree. Or, even using grenade launchers (stand alone units, or attachments to their weapons) to target the trees themselves, or to hit behind a tree and fill you full of shrapnel.
User avatar #122 to #110 - ithinkihaveaids **User deleted account** (05/09/2013) [-]
+ WTF are you talking about being infected? a man is down if he's hit that's the end of it. Platoon leader doesnt give a **** about people getting infected until an AAR atleast.

digging in wont work due to already being in the open and under fire, only falling back will work (which is a temporary help due to enemy being able to use the trees as cover for flanking movement, hill is still bare.
#131 to #122 - tomthehippie (05/09/2013) [-]
My bad, I didn't realize you were talking about wargames. I was talking more real life. In a real life combat situation, even a minor wound that gets infected can take a soldier out of the fight, especially if fever sets in.
User avatar #133 to #131 - ithinkihaveaids **User deleted account** (05/09/2013) [-]
sure but that is up to the medic, now I havent gone to the army but if a medic comes to me while im trying to lead the platoon and whine about 1-a few guys getting bad cuts I'd tell him to **** off.

the concept of this situation is 2 highly trained military units having a meeting engagement, you will have soldiers dieing left and right, that means that the wounded wont get proper help until the end of the engagement.
#135 to #133 - tomthehippie (05/09/2013) [-]
Which is why I mentioned your medic could easily die during the engagement.
User avatar #120 to #110 - ithinkihaveaids **User deleted account** (05/09/2013) [-]
so you are saying a platoon of infantry, without ANY cover will win over another platoon with cover? remember, the Platoon down in the valley also has GPMGs, ATGMs, HEDP-rockets, Grenade lauchers, LMGs, ARs, and a TON of rifles.

Trees DO offer A lot of concealment thanks to it being an INF platoon, not motorised, mechanized, armoured or anything else, remember the platoon down in the valley can spread out all around the hill and be able to EASILY flank the enemy on the hill.

in the mean time the INF on the hill wont be able to move anywhere without being noticed.

Trust me, we have tried this is ARMA.
User avatar #129 to #120 - BadManTaliban (05/09/2013) [-]
i guess my only question now is why the **** is my platoon trying to take/hold this coverless ******* hill that is surrounded by trees that can be used to out maneuver my forces?
User avatar #134 to #129 - ithinkihaveaids **User deleted account** (05/09/2013) [-]
well I'm quoting tom: ''Hey, its true. No matter what form of combat, the high ground always gives a huge advantage.''

just giving him a situation where it is not good.

sure high ground gives you advantages but you also have disadvantages like exposure and such, at the end it depends of the experience of the commander, can he use the terrain.

SAW=Squad Automatic Weapon
User avatar #127 to #113 - ithinkihaveaids **User deleted account** (05/09/2013) [-]
or the actual name m249,
SAW is also LMG which is a more global term for a Squad Automatic Weapon
for example: MG4.
