Introducing 2 new characters into a short story and figured I'd lead with some humor. Well, what do you think? Any ratelo think there is any humor there or should I just keep it frosty and ghost recon like?





~~~~~~~~~~~~~














  • "Scarecrow calling
    Angel.”




  • "Angel do you copy,
    over?”




  • "ANGEL, this is
    SCARECROW. DO. YOU. COPY OVER?”




  • "GODDAMMIT ANGEL IF
    YOU CAN FUCKING HEAR ME YOU HAD BEST FUCKING CALL OUT LOUD AND
    FUCKING CLEAR FUCKING PRONTO, OVER.”




  • "...I told you I
    would only answer to Dickcopter. Do you have a message for
    dickcopter, over?”




  • "...YOU STUPID
    MOTHE.... Dude. Can we stick to the battle plan this one goddamn
    time? Seriously man I'm not holding a FUCKING CONVERSATION WITH A
    STATION NAMED DICKCOPTER, OVER.”




  • "Angel this is
    Scarecrow. DO YOU COPY OVER?”




  • "No... over”




  • "Angel what do you
    mean NO, over?”




  • "Tim seriously,
    you're going to make us look like a bunch of cockfags with a handle
    like that. Can we just stick to radio etiquette and our assigned
    handles this one time and argue about this later?”




  • "...fine”




  • "Say again your last,
    over.”




  • "Fine, over”




  • "Fucking thank you.”




  • "Angel this is
    Scarecrow. How copy, over?”




  • "...Scarecrow this is
    Angel. I copy good how me?”




  • "Angel, I have you
    5x5.”




  • "Scarecrow reports
    possible foot mobiles crossing the river at grid to follow, over.”




  • "Roger that Crow.
    Possible foot in your sector. Go ahead for coords.”




  • "Angel, grid is as
    follows. Alpha Delta one fower tree tree seven fower two fife, over”




  • "Roger Crow. I have
    grid AD14337425, over.”




  • "Angel, that is a
    good copy.”




  • "Crow, bird is in the
    air ETA 4 minutes til station.”





  • "Roger that, Angel.

FIFY

I realize this is a joke, but just FYI, using names and profanity are not considered proper radio etiquette.

Also, when reporting on a target, you would typically be less ambiguous.  Instead of “possible foot mobiles crossing the river” your observation report should sound like “Approximately 15 Republican Guard (or enemy*) foot mobiles currently crossing the river 100 meters west of my pos., equipped with body armor, AK47s, and 3 RPG7s".

Look up a SALUTE report.  SALUTE is an acronym for reporting on enemy activity.  It Stands for Size Activity Location Unit Time Equipment.


For example, the exchange I outlined would break down as:

Size: 15 enemy foot mobiles (similarly, you could simply say “squad-sized element”)

Activity: crossing the river

Location: 100 meters west of my pos. (pos.= position)

Unit: Republican Guard (*in this instance, you would probably just say ‘enemy’ because they would likely be the only enemy in your AO)

Time: currently (if for some reason you observed enemy activity, but were out of radio contact, you could report the activity later by saying something to the effect of “at 0900”)

Equipment: body armor, AK47s, 3 RPG7s (reporting on enemy equipment is critical to developing a proper response.  Say your air support ended up being helicopters, you would want to report all observable enemy equipment in case they had some kind of anti-air craft weapons.)



I know that explanation is a little into–the-weeds, but I hope it helps

probably funnier if radio chatter is second nature to you.
too much work for me to follow...and I personally don't find profanity funny.  If that makes me so be it.
