An enjoyable evening. Many thanks to Gladiiator for the mission and to Grenny for stepping up to C.O - once again.


The LMV/RWS/Spike combo was err, interesting. It wasn't so bad setting up defensive/covering positions on the treeline to overwatch our final assault, but going tank hunting in the much more open southern valley was a different kettle of fish. The LMV is soft-skinned, so moving forward to contact has to be done extremely cautiously using the RWS TI and hoping you see the enemy before he sees you. Pure, dismounted advance doesn't work for two reasons. 1. The squad is so slow and 2. While walking they have no means of identifying trouble ahead. Setting up and breaking down takes so long it isn't practical to do it every hundred metres or so. IMHO, ATGM teams are of limited use in offensive operations and if they have to be used, they need an APC at least for protection. What's the view of the professionals?
