A guy I shot with was in the guard.

He said on field exercises they gave him an M-60 and he always climbed a tree with it.

He said 'No one ever looks up."

That kind of low tech drone is pretty good for the bang for the buck ratio.

I'm writing a grant right now to get some small drones for my tech club at school.  Part of my sales pitch is how being a drone operator is a career of the future.  Perhaps I should add Commie Slayer to the list along with real estate photography and building inspection.

Combat is like that - options were to go went left, right, or stay. Soldier went right and most likely died. Soldier went left an lived. Both could have stayed and made it. It was an immediate decision that has eternal results.   anyway, 75% of the casualties I'm seeing could be avoided with camo screens, overhead cover, and discipline.

After being in a region in Iraq that, for a while anyway, was heavily mortared and rocketed I eventually realized that it didn't matter what I did.  If it was my time to get exploded it was my time.

I liken it to being outside in a lightning storm, never know where it's going to hit but being near certain things doing certain things can attract it. Sometimes it doesn't matter how fit, smart, well trained or equipped you are, when it's your time, it's your time.



ETA: And this:

Add tower inspections to the list too.

A good drone operator can save me $3000 a day.

During AIT, I was OpFor for a day, laying in the brush with an M240, I watched squad after squad get killed by the cadre as they walked under a tree with a 155mm "IED" just sitting in a crook in the branches about 12-18' above the ground, not even hidden. Cadre was laughing afterwards and told me in all of the training cycles that year, only 2 people had ever scanned up and saved their squads. It sure stuck with me that danger isn't just a flat plane.

I don't understand what's going on... they apparently can't see or hear the drone, but almost immediately when they drop the grenade they are running?

and the one guy ditches his rifle... outta the trench... da fuq?

I was working on a high-rise job in Chicago over 40 years ago. We were putting up a tower crane. The foreman and I were on the ground crew sending sections up. One of the guys that was connecting dropped a stainless steel nut. It rattled down inside of the tower I turned to run away from the tower. The old hand I was working with grabbed me by the arm and told me to stand still. Just after he stopped me the nut passed over us and bounced approximately where I'd had been if I'd run. He turned to me and said you have a much better chance of not getting hit if you just stay in one spot. Because when you don't the crazy thing will take a funny bounce at the last minute and wipe you out.

Ascertain the height from which the object fell. Multiply the height by the object's acceleration due to gravity. The acceleration due to gravity is 32.2 ft/s^2 for English units, or 9.8 m/s^2 for SI units. If you drop an object from 15 feet, for example, you would multiply 15 ft * 32.2 ft/s^2 to get 483 ft^2/s^2.

Multiply the result by 2. For example, 483 ft^2/s^2 * 2 = 966 ft^2/s^2.

What is going to happen when a guy balancing on a tree limb and (probably) holding an M-60 in his arms starts firing it?
If he survives that, he is out in the open with no cover and not much concealment. M-60 is not for killing per se, but for making the enemy keep their heads down. For that, the gunner needs to survive beyond the first exchange of fire. Lastly, how is he going to relocate under fire?

How did I do?

So the drone pulled the bomb out of the sack, gave it a 1, 2, 3, and dropped it?

You forgot the balancing act if he has to try to reload. And then of course the medic will be occupied treating his dumb ass when he falls out of the tree.

The things that can be done with readily available tech and basic knowledge  is amazing.Stuff like this is why trying to regulate or ban guns seems useless.With as much brainpower and ingenuity that exist on just arfcom alone an invading force wouldn’t stand much of a chance.
