Notice the shooter with the camera was using a Surefure 60.

He is using a Surefire 60 Round mag. Look at around 28 seconds and you can see the shape of it when he is reloading.

Wwwooowww. Good to know that he is useing all of his marksman ship training. Not to mention that 11500 $ acog that tax payers have purchased him. Did he look down his sights once? What was he even shooting at? Did he ever properly shoulder that weapon?

shooting to suppress. It’s common enough when you don’t have any clear idea on where the enemy is other than basic direction; or you want him to keep his head down.

Because when you have limited ammo, the best thing you can do is piss away ammo shooting at something you cant see.

See Vice’s Inside Afghanistan video, the US soldiers are always yelling at the Afgahni’s to stop shooting at things they cant see, cause theyre just wasting ammo.

I see this all the time in videos from Afganistan. It just seems like such a waste. But what the hell do I know, I’ve never been in that situtation.

Seems like designating one or two men with binoculars to observe the enemy position and direction of fire for movement and postiviely IDing targets would be most benficial. Along with DMs or Snipers to zero in on exposed and semi concealed targets. Air cover can take care of everything else.

I would guess those were MPs. At least I hope they weren’t 11B. We had to work with some MPs on my last tour that refused to carry SAWs and 240Bs because they’re too heavy. So they would have to give suppressing fire with their M4s–which is a terrible idea (you run out of ammo!).

Regarding the Afghan troops, our issue was they kept getting shot in the ass. We would take contact and they would throw down their weapons and hide in ditches in the fetal position but with their asses in the air. Then our platoon medic and I would go around and tape up asses and legs. Occasionally, the Afghans would wait until we routed our ambushers and then they would emerge from the ditch, pick up their weapons and fire randomly in a 360, then claim victory.

Makes me sad that some NCO somewhere lets his troops fight like this.

MGS suppress! they establish a base of fire so that the infantry or rifle units can engage the enemy with accurate fire and destroy them. I have served! and the big problem that i see, is that regular units don’t use fire and maneuver. They sit in one place and spray bullets in to outer space until the bad guys leave the area or until the unit needs to withdraw for ammo resupply. Fire and maneuver is a basic infantry tactic that 100% works, but is rarely used.

What’s a marksman ship? A boat that’s not quite a sharpshooter or expert?

Why would you throw it down a hole? The LAPD would have paid $200 for it!
