P.S. if you look at the two ambush videos, and recall that stupidity over the Survivalblog comments about breaking contact 180 degrees away from the enemy, versus, the MVT drill of breaking back along the way you walked in, you can see why. Now, disregard the fact that the ambushes were well executed and the enemy had no chance, assuming fire is more sporadic / less accurate in a less lethal contact, to go directly away would have been up the side of the hill and under fire for longer. Getting into the creek and using it as linear cover to fight out in a peel back the way they came gives them a better chance (other than the fact that we also had that nailed down in both ambushes….).. but then again, this is MVT, and we know SUT.April 7, 2017 at 1:07 pm #43216
