Topic: Tactics forum


Was looking around and noticed that there wasn't any particular place for discussion of military tactics except the general forum. I thought it was a bit odd that something so prevalent in the military has no place of its own in a military forum. It's a bit specific for a forum but it could be a possible sub-forum somewhere. If there is a place for military tactics I apologize for not having found it yet.

Tactics/Techniques can often be considered classified information in many nations, so it's quite hard to discuss that without revealing/spreading info that shouldn't be available online..

That's an affirmative.

Nowadays, tactics for me are whether to have steak or chicken for my evening meal!

And you are accusing me for not staying on topic.

Is this the thread for sharing the best theories and practices for picking up chicks?

There are many authors to read if you want to increase your knowledge about military theories and military doctrines. The Art of War by Sun Tzu, On War by Carl von Clausewitz, the Art of War by Jomini, and maybe even to include The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli and the Leviathan by Thomas Hobbes. These literature's provide with a good theoretical knowledge and continue with more recent authors.

Well... I know you're dying to tell your secrets for doing this so spit it out ,I3, How do you cast your spell on the women? This should be interesting, I've always wondered how the male mind works.... do you wooo us with your knowledge of how many books you've read or do you simply pretend to truly and honestly care about our feelings while we whine continuously about our frustrating lives? ... (or both?)

Okay, nobody wants to deal in specifics, and I don't blame them. Let's talk generalities. The hot topic and new military buzz term is "Hybrid Warfare'. A current example is the Donbass war. There you will see a mixture of conventional forces, irregular forces ( militias, guerrillas, mercenaries, special forces), political subversion and cyber warfare.
Who knows anything about this? Can you site examples such as the Israeli incursion into lebanon in 2006 when Hezbollah was even hacking individual cellphones of Israeli soldiers and gleaning information as well as tapping into Israeli communications.
In order to operate in this venue regular forces will have to be capable of a broad range of options ranging from conventional punch-up operations to counter - guerrilla warfare.
Few conventional forces can do this and I maintain that a conventional force can only do it on their own soil, not on the soil of another nation.
Example: The North Vietnamese Army was capable of shifting between conventional combat into guerrilla operations and back again like throwing a switch! American generals had never seen anything like it. However, it's obvious that the Viets were operating on their own turf, knew the ground, knew the people and knew the score.
So, how many members of this forum have received guerrilla or counter-guerrilla training as part of conventional training? I don't mean a one hour lecture. i'm talking about a full multi-day exercise playing the part of either the guerrillas or the counter force. I'll bet none. Well, maybe U.S. Marines cause they love all that b******t.

Not so much counter guerrilla training, but counter terrorist training i.e. Provisional IRA.
