With CS or CN gas it's all about deployment and concentration. It can be quite effective outdoors if the deployment is done correctly.

Look, now we're going into pointless hypotheticalls of "well, what if we could make them halucinate" and such.

The bottom line is that the U.S. doesn't use gas and it would be more effective to just B-52 carpet bomb an area than to gas it anyway.

From what I remember about the "gas chamber" in basic, tear gas was pretty easy to recover from once the drill sergeant let you out. That's why it is used for crowd control, but the CS stuck to our bodies. Any sweaty place on the body was where it stuck, underarms, crotch, throat, eyes, neck..you get the picture. They would throw a CS cannister between our lines on each side of a road we were on and everyone would forget about fighting.

Gas chamber at Basic.

Remember somebody telling you "rub your eyes they'll feel better"?

Thankfully I had been informed the real story and knew better.

Some of the guys got sick and you would slip in it if you didn't exit slow. They had all of us, about 20 at a time, around the walls and dropped a capsule in a sterno can. Our masks worked great but when the Drill Sgt. stood in front of you, you pulled the mask off and looked him in the eyes while reciting your name, rank, and s/n. If you messed up, you went around and got in line again.

I just faced the breeze and let my eyes wash it out. I knew better than to touch my face because I had seen the guys before me come out and figured out the score by the time I had to go in. The NCO outside was screaming at the ones rolling on the ground and rubbing their eyes so we knew what we were supposed to do.

When they had us go back through a second time, they told us the cannister held chlorine gas , I think that was to make you check and clear your mask.

Name, rank, and s/n?

They took it easy on you. We had to state all the General Orders. If you messed up like you, back in you went. Lotta guys got plenty dosed that day.

And what does your post have to do with the topic? At least we were talking about gas.

Gas, even Hitler thought it was too cruel to use.
