Asides from the offi

Asides from the official Best Unit Competition, there's also the inrmfoal Best Unit competition - the one which is judged by Regulars and NSFs who trade stories (never verified, but too detailed to be mere fluff) about legendary actions by certain units. Or rather certain commanders...I recall two stories - On an Company v Company exercise, a particularly ingenious Infantry OC had bravely changed his tact for conducting a night attack on the defending company. He had a Section use tripflares to distract the defending force, leading them to think that they were going to be attacked in one direction - and delayed his attack till midnight (greatest tiredness level). He then got his men to advance on the sleeping company, tapping each soldier 'defending' in the trench position on the shoulder as they advanced and whispering "you're dead".Of course there are fantastically funny stories like how a Scout Platoon commander got captured because he got lost in the midst of mission and approached the 'enemy force' to find out which knoll they were at. I'm glad the majority lies with legends.

DrCockroach disse:Li

DrCockroach disse:Li em algum lugar que p/ o MMRCA Indiano a LM estah desenvolvendo uma sonda de reiambtecsaento retractable p/ o F-16 similar ao Gripen.E sobre o supercruise? Qual seria a configuracao e velocidade?()s!P.S.: O Gripen India site diz que o proximo objetivo do Gripen NG eh supercruise at Mach 1.3 40,000 feet. (hoje eh Mach 1.2 28,000).PPS: Me parece muito interessante comparar o F-16 com o Gripen.
