    Same thing that's happening right now. Ukrainians are the ones kicking ass but American reddit retards act like it's their victory.

      If America had given up on rescuing the pilot and the bodies they wouldn't have needed the Pakistani column at all. In fact the Pakistanis didn't even want to go at first because they couldn't understand the concept of no one gets left behind and thought the Americans were insane

          I don't care enough to explain in detail, but I use to kit my squad out on Wildlands to look like a mixed bag of Delta and Rangers.

          Vietnam was a weird cluster fuck, the US didn't want to push into North Vietnam to extract aircrews because they didn't want a repeat of Korea. Add to that the fact that we didn't know which airmen we're actually still alive until they were shown in propaganda pieces or a recovered POW could confirm their status. I would have hated to be involved with anything that has to do with MIAs and POWs in Vietnam.

          19 dead USA vs 2200 dead Skinnies
          >Asses kicked

          That's not a good reflection of the events considering that a bunch of "skinnies" took down multiple helicopters which sent the UN presence into a panic started by the lead of the US.

          The rest of this thread is full of retards so let's just talk about our loadouts on Wildlands.

        What is the actual point of this post?

        Like, the US should have stayed in Somalia even though they clearly couldn't achieve the humanitarian mission they were there to do?

        The entire US mission there was intended to relieve a famine, why would we stay there if the starving people are shooting at us? What benefit does that bring? They "won" by convincing us that helping them wouldn't be worth the effort.

        exchange ratio is a valid way of determining tactical efficiency
        tactics is about maximizing enemy losses while minimizing friendly losses

        its usually taken for granted that the victor will take less losses than the loser, since if it takes you 3 losses to inflict 1 loss on your enemy you werent going to win to begin with unless you outnumber them 5:1
        so cases where small units can inflict massive losses on the enemy even in defeat, that is usually highly unusual at the least

    Because they are not bullet proof, and their inflated ego think they are.

    Burgers are ungrateful bastards

    It makes sense that complete losers would idolize the Somalis in this situation.

    does anybody make a decent colt 727 style upper thats 14.5 inches?
    Ive been holding out for TNTE but theyre always out of stock and ive heard mixed things about their wait time.

    Im thinking about either getting a 16 inch and calling it a day, or getting a regular m4 upper and swapping the handguard

    What went wrong is that command got antsy and decided to conduct a day time air assault raid on the X in a major city with armed militant groups that they had pissed off with earlier raids. They knew the population had turned hostile.

    What happens next? What tactical advantage does a nine month pregnant gnomish girl who can't even speak any of the languages everyone else is speaking suddenly appearing in the middle of the Battle of Mogadishu present to Task Force Ranger?
