    That guy looks like he could rip the head off your shoulders. So sure, he’s a geek, but no one’s going to tell him.

    I’d be more worried about his fat ass falling on top of me to be honest.

    When I was in Iraq in 2003 I saw a patrol of US Marines Bradely Fighting Vehicles with Space Wolves icons on them. They just back from tearing a new asshole in some Republican Guard asshats. I found out some of their guys play 40k and talked their commander to paint the Space Wolves wolf head on them during the invasion. They might be geeks, but they weren’t pussies.

    If they weren’t pussies they’d be fighting the republican guard on equal terms. Not with technology 40 years ahead of the opponent.

    Not to mention their knowledge of board game tactics.

    Obviously you have never been in combat or know much about the Iraqi Republican Guard. The Republican Guard had T-72 tanks, the Bradley is actually just a beefed up APC, if you have any idea of these two vehicles you would know it was not a unfair match.

    Actually 10 years difference (T-72 in 1971, Bradley in 1981), and the T-72 is a Main Battle Tank with a 125mm cannon, whereas the Bradley is a Infantry Fighting Vehicle with a 25mm chain-gun. The T-72’s should have outclassed the Bradley with ease. Granted, the IRG battle experience was mostly in the form of a killing unarmed Shi’ites and filling mass graves for those other Iraqis Saddam don’t like, but not only did the IRG have the Marines outgun, they also had home field advantage. So, having the Space Wolve logo on one’s fighting machine while stomping the crap out… Read more »

    So the equipment and upgrades you mentioned do nothing? How about satellite supervision, superior air support, training, and being part of a larger war machine in addition to the ten years newer tanks?

    I’m also curious to know, if you’ve got the numbers, how many tanks were lost on both sides.

    gor
    Member

    The Marines didn’t have tanks they had infantry fight vehicles (please pay attention), also this particular group didn’t have air support at the time and where actually ambushed by the T-72s, so these “geek” Marines where even more hard core than I orginally implied. You are correct Kory, the Marines had better training, that is the big difference between a modern fighting force and oppressive dictators. The IRG was Saddam’s thugs and they were only good at oppressing his subjects. Even with surprise, firepower and defensive positions the IRG tank platoon couldn’t defeat a smaller group of US Marines who… Read more »

    Korinthian, I’ve never seen anybody lose and make such idiotic remarks in so many flame wars.

    The worst part is that you’re not even a troll, you’re just a moron.

    Korinthian
    Member

    Sorry, I didn’t pay attention when you started throwing numbers at me (and to be fair, it looks like a tank). But on the issue of bravery. Bravery implies some kind of choice, and being ambushed is kind of involuntary. It is true that I am no expert in this area, but thanks to you I am learning as I go. No one is as willing to teach as those who wants to prove you wrong. So this fight you were talking about, was it one on one, or did one side actually have the advantage of numbers? If it… Read more »

    No offense taken Kory, I just wanted to point out that not everyone who likes 40k is a loser geek. This particular incident happen near An Nasiriyah in late March, I was my commanding officer’s crew-chief (I was a helicopter aircrewman) and we were ordered to an FARP (Forward Area Rearm/Refuel Point) near there. I saw these guys pulling in and saw their Space Wolf logo, they told me what just transpired earier. I’m not sure of the actual numbers, but it was one platoon of IRG MBT against one Marine platoon, both had about 5 vehicles. The Marines did… Read more »

    Just curious, gor. What sort of anti-tank capability does a Bradley full of marines have? I know we don’t supply them with meltabombs or krak grenades. I have to assume though that they didn’t use socks covered in motor grease with dynamite inside.

    Either way, 5 APCs v 5 tanks… that’s pretty bad ass.

    When I went home yesterday I read my journal I kept while in Iraq, the Marines vehicles were actually LAV 25 & LAV ATs, basically Bradleys with wheels instead of tracks (my bad, I’m a helo guy). The particular unit was a re-enforced platoon (they had 5 vehicles instead of 4). The weapons they had were TOW missiles, along with their 25mm chain-gun.

    Also, what kind of dumbass reads something they think is boring, does someone have a gun to Caio’s head?

    “If they weren’t pussies they’d be fighting the republican guard on equal terms. Not with technology 40 years ahead of the opponent.”

    I know this is a ways back, but still I have an issue with it, as you say. Using technology that’s better than your opponent when you’ve got it (regardless of topic) isn’t being a pussie, it’s not being a fucking idiot. If some guy tries to mug with with a knife, and i have a knife and a gun, I’m gonna draw the gun and tell him to fuck off, not get out the knife cause it’s “fair”.

    Korinthian

    And any sane person would do the same, Max. But I was trying to make the point that even though USAdish soldiers are certainly braver than me, the USAdish military is always fighting with the advantage. It doesn’t take He-Man to nuke a site from orbit and then roll in on tanks loaded with ammo that out-distance the enemy’s by miles.

    It’s people like the viet-cong that truly impress me, even though there are fewer movies made where they are the heroes (if anyone know of any, let me know).

    Korinthian, seriously….I just don’t know how many more ways there are that people can describe you as being functionally retarded. First of all, I think we should agree on one point: the point of war. In a war, you’re pretty much trying to kill somebody, or at least break their will to the point that they are unwilling to fight anymore. In short, your goal is to “win.” Be it defending your own country, taking another country’s land, resources, etc, that’s the bottom line. Let me introduce you to a saying: “If you came prepared for a fair fight, you… Read more »

    FlyingMantisShrimp: Enjoy arguing strawmen much? Too bad on such a wall of text. I do understand what war is about, and I do understand that you take stuff like this as personally as a kick in the balls, but please try to follow me here. It is not I that is under the illusion that the wars and the one’s fighting them are/should be cheered on my god, just and righteous. Quite the contrary. But this is the image conjured by USAders everytime the two words “brave soldier” appears on national TV. And don’t do the mistake of labeling to… Read more »

    Korinthian, perhaps you should L2Read while I L2Type. You completely ignored everything I typed, and, better yet, you completely launched off into other subjects entirely unrelated. My MAIN point on disinformation was concerning the RG, not the VC. Again, some reading comprehension classes on your part would come in handy at this point. Please, point me to the part where I said that the U.S.A. is beyond reproach. Oh yeah, that’s right. You can’t. Because I never even insinuated such a dumbass claim, nor do I believe such a thing. There’s no doubt that both sides in any war misinform… Read more »

    @Suicydking The Bradley has some pretty serious anti-tank firepower, as how one of the main purposes behind its construction was not just to provide an APC, but also a capable tank killer. The 25mm chain gun, which itself is just awesome, fires HE(high explosive) or APDS(sabot round, basically). 200 rounds a minute, if I remember correctly, and a max range in the neighborhood of 2500 meters. It also has a few TOW missiles, though I don’t know the exact, maximum number it can carry. Then, you have the coaxial machine gun, a M240C that fires 7.62mm rounds. It’s said that… Read more »

    Oh, and as for the whole thing about it being full of infantrymen, it depends. They’ll probably have at least two shoulder-fired antitank weapons with them, but you wouldn’t exactly want to dismount some infantry for a long-range armor on armor fight.

    Oh yeah, RG, my mistake. But that doesn’t change the point one bit. Glad you see what is important in a discussion: small mistakes and not the actual point. Sure you didn’t say that USA is beyond reproach, but it is just implied in your overly patriotic and fanatic tone. It just seemed that a person like you would choose to ignore such facts, that or you have believed what FOX news has told you. And like what you accused me of doing, you assume that I have said USA has death squads. Not so, you guys have better ways… Read more »
