so, here's a thread inspired by the one about velociraptors ... what sort of weaponry and tacticts would you use if your city got overrun by bigfeet cavalry mounted on megaraptors (the 9 foot tall ones) commanding squads of zombie pygmies riding undead velociraptors (the dog-sized ones)? think existing weaponry. no phasars, no nuke50, none of that stuff. they'd probably be organized as such: Squad Leader bigfoot riding a megaraptor Team leaders (two per squad) adolescent bigfeet riding utahraptors/deinonychus (the man-sized ones) regular joes (four per team) zombie pygmies riding undead velociraptors figure on probably a battalion sized element (about 100 squads) with no higher command structure than squad leaders invading your city/general-geographic area.

Don't you have quite the active imagination? You should play D&D. I would go with a battalion of morters to back up a battalion of riflemen with a heavy machinegunner. Or if all else fails, send in a squad of ninjas with industrial strength made for bigfoot nunchaku and armed with silenced potato launchers. They'll get the job done.

Russian designed (for chechnya) shoulder-launch fuel-air RPG's. LOTS of em. One could wipe out a squad. Fired from comfort zone next to a bradley which carries the ammo, and provides support fire.

I believe I would be doomed. I would just go hide in my bum.

I would split my forces into 7-man hunter-killer groups. 2 of these would provide covering fire to the front. 2 of these would be armed with M4s to provide security to the flanks. 1 would be the group leader, spotting targets. 2 would man the main firepower of the group; this would be an M240, using PB (Pepto Bismol) ammo.

a concrete bunker with a couple of browning M2's and a few tens of thousands of rounds. use one for a while then switch to the other to let the first one cool off

BARs and M2s!
Link Posted: 6/13/2003 5:35:11 PM EDT
Mechanized Task Force... a company of M1's in a Vee formation loaded with Heat and Canister rounds, with two company's of M2's one in a echelon left and one echelon right, laying down covering fire to the flanks with 25 mike mike HE. Gunner, HE, bigfeet cavalry in the open! Identified! Fire! ON THE WAY!!!!!!!! Target!, Cease Fire! You would have to strain the remains for fingerprints.

This will take care of them. [img]http://www.animerica-mag.com/features/10.12/images/bluegender_01.jpg[/img] 30mm auto cannon. 84mm high/low pressure pump action grenade launcher (shoots 84mm Carl Gustav projectiles from a scaled up 40mm grenade launcher case). And for backup (and carcass removal) a appropriate sized battleaxe.

what's your point? [:E] but let's take this thread and have fun with it. ninjas are perfectly allowed in the context of this thread. just no pulse rifles or phasers or junk like that. now let's totally flip out!

Also CAS with A-10's loaded with cluster bombs and FAE/Napalm, break out the A1 sauce! And as long as we are usiing Mil-spec equipment, add one battery of MLRS and M109's for on call fire support. REDLEG6, REDLEG6, FIRE MISSION! BIGFEET CALVARY AND ZOMBIES IN OPEN! GRID GOLF LIMA 23456789! REQUEST HE QUICK AND WILLIE PETE! SHOT OUT! SHOT OVER! SPLASH OUT! SPLASH OVER! RIGHT 100, DROP 250! FIRE FOR EFFECT! probably changed how they call for fire now, but its as close as I can remember how to do it. Those where the days!

I'd probably just charge right up to these "bigfeet cavalry mounted on megaraptors (the 9 foot tall ones) commanding squads of zombie pygmies riding undead velociraptors" and give 'em a good... ...back rub. cynic

Take all my clothes off cover myself in vaseline, put on a skimask, grab the AR 15 and the khukri and the AR 50. Try for a few good long range shots with the 50 then go after them with my AR15 and knife atleast they will have a hard time trying to grab me.

I read that book; they used artillery, for the most part, but it didn't work. What did were the guys in fighting suits with the anti-matter rifles, but they were getting killed off left and right. In the end they got saved by the Fleet.

Blow the following picture up to billboard size. Hang all over where the zombies, etc. are gathering, massing on so forth. [url]http://www.ananova.com/images/web/58251.jpg[/url] That should take care of everything. They will destroy anything to get away from that.

Catapult with explosive pirates as ammunition. Contrary to less than popular belief, raptors and pirates are natural enemies. Zombie pygmies will only eat other pygmies. If you clear 5 ft., they will ignore you.

except that to adjust fire, you need to call for fire in polar. because they don't know which direction "right 100" is. if you're facing east when you call for fire, then "right 100" is south. if you're facing a magnetic azimuth of 261, then "right 100" is magnetic 351. and I'm not even going to convert it to mils.

Yeah, I forgot about that, but its been 13 years since I had to call for fire. Not alot of need for it in my present occupation.
Link Posted: 6/14/2003 1:34:36 PM EDT
yeah, no biggie. I've only had to adjust fire once, and I never knew about how it *had* to be in polar, we just did it in polar b/c we were told that's how we were going to do it. I was talking to an FO recently and that's how I learned about how and why it has to be in polar.
