It’s for cqb not open fields o.o I mean if we were trying to take an airfield that would be retarded, but clearing a room, shooting and moving is really smart
Even then, unless the room is completely devoid of solid objects like furniture, you’re entering a room of people who have likely a better understanding of it’s layout, and have perhaps entrenched themselves in it.
It’s weird, dude. CQB is disorienting and messy, unless you’ve got nerves of steel you’re not going to be standing around shooting at a prepared pace.

You should read House to House by SSG David Bellavia.  It’s about Operation Phantom Fury in Fallujah and it’s incredibly detailed about the CQC those soldiers and Marines faced.  It’s all about “controlled chaos” in all senses of the term.

I remember a few instances of him talking about fortified locations, being pinned by RPK/PKM fire and the whole house seizing situation became completely FUBAR.

There’s another book called We Were One, I can’t remember the author but it’s about a Marine platoon in Fallujah at the same time Bellavia was there, and there are a ton of parallels.  It goes in depth about CQC but the majority of the book is about the Marines themselves.

I just think it’ll offer some insight, though I’m not completely keeping track of the conversation so ignore me if it’s irrelevant!

Don’t beat your wife, don’t beat you kids, don’t drink and drive, don’t text and drive, wear your seatbelt. Don’t do drugs. If you get tired, pull over, do some push ups. See you at 0700 next week.

Fall out.

*raises hand*

May I add on to your safety brief?

Go ahead!

I had to pee until they told us there was a UA.

Now I can’t pee. Stage fright?
