    Is that Chicken Road..?

  3. iggy says:

    good question. why is anybody crossing the road when the LSW isnt laying down cover…?

    • C. Myngs says:

      Not every crossing of a danger area requires suppressive fire. I would recommend reviewing FM 7-8 / 3-21. Chapter 2 supplies guidance for crossing danger areas.

  4. Eric says:

    To conduct actions on the train objective.

  5. SPEC9 says:

    Because they’re misoriented and attacking the wrong objective.

  6. What happened to scrolls to the road?! No security on the near or far side. That is a major minus!

    • C. Myngs says:

      There are quite a few acceptable techniques for crossing a danger area in addition to scrolling the road. Just because you can’t see the security in this photograph doesn’t mean the soldiers forgot to deploy them. Try reviewing FM 7-8 / 3-21. Chapter Two has guidance on crossing danger areas.

    Because his TL said so. Move out; draw fire.
