Today a friend of mine sent me the link of a Deadliest Warrior episode.The video was about the comparision between the type 68 (AKM) and the M4.I paid much more attention to the tecnique used by the two shooters.The tecnique adopted by the North Korean guy was almost perfect. The US Ranger did it very bad and in a almost completely wrong way. The video is here: [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8wTYa3dmhjc[/ame] As you can see, these are the most evident mistakes made by the US Ranger: ROOM 1 1)Exposing himself too much and spending too much time to aim.The ranger shot 4 rounds, 2 in the chest(CORRECT!He was aiming to the center of the mass) 2 in the head(WRONG!He was wasting time and ammo.In a real life situation, the target would have fallen backward(shot in the chest) and there would be no time to hit it in the head). Possible scenario result:KIA!There were two suspects,One would be killed almost instantly by the ranger but the other one would have enough time to shot back and kill the ranger because he had no cover. 2)Entering the room before clearing it completely(since it was more than possible to do it(both suspect were visible).He exposed himself, enabled the safety and entered the room (By jumping through the window) where an armed suspect would have enough time to shot him several times. Possible scenario result:KIA!No fireback capability(Safety on), No exit Strategy.No time to react effectively. ROOM 2 1)He entered the room by exposing himself to much.There were two targets.One was "looking" directly at the door behind a desk, the second one was in the corner of the room.The ranger engaged the target in the corner first, walking towards it without any cover. Possible scenario result:KIA!The correct procedure when you're in a solo-action, is to minimize the amount of time spent by being exposed to counter-fire.He should neutralize the target behind the desk first and lean (lean right) into the room and kill the target in the corner(This is what we call "tactical sequence" in my country).In this way, he would have some cover and would have neutralized both targets in a quick and efficient way. ROOM 3 Same as for ROOM 2.No cover, neither a partial one.In this case things are slightly different.There are two targets, one is laying on the bed unarmed, the second one is standing and looking in the opposite direction.I would kill the standing target first and then kill the laying one. What is your opinion?US ranger are elite units.Shouldn't they do much better than this?
