  • Obsolete Military Tactics

    I was watching the Rolling Thunder videos, and someone mentioned that they were pulling a 'Ghengis Khan', circling the enemy while firing into the middle of them. So I got to thinking, what are some other old school military tactics we could try in Arma?

    Massed musket fire... with M107s?

    Heavy Cavalry Charge ... With Abrams and Strykers?

    The famous Parthian Shot... with an m136?

    Just something to think about while everyone is messing around after a particularly long mission.

                    I've always thought we should like up civil war style and walk slowly towards the enemy.. not stopping no matter what.

                        Got and update on this.. the other night on my big patrol map, some people lined up to walk in a line and I started blaring some old civil war flute and drum music off youtube over Direct Comms. Really funny experience. I think someone said they frapped it also!

                          Hey, you know with the right skins we could do an Iran/Iraq war map, where the player team has thousands of respawns and instant respawn, but no weapons except for a handful of basic rifles, some gasoline bombs and crude explosives, and whatever they can take. Then throw them up against an entrenched, well armed iraqi position and try to work out a way to reach and overwhelm the enemy using extremely unconventional tatics.
