make them wear CBRN gear
CBRN gear seems close enough to hijabs to count, like look at it it basically does the same thing as a hijab

All the people in the world are important, it makes my stomach muddy that someone is killed systematically just because of his ethnicity. I don't understand racists, I think this is a disease. Then do you accept the reality of the Armenian Genocide and the responsibility of the Turkish nation for i...

I mean duh. A plane's a plane? It can sling bombs. Although iirc most of the planes in the area are just hordes of F-16s anyway so... also you're acting as if the bradley can't be modified to fit COIN operations. which it was and which it did alright in, iirc-correct me if i'm wrong.

In all the combat missions that it has been involved in over the course of the past 30 years the A-10 losses to SAM systems have been extremely low. And the GAU-8 would still be effective at getting a kill on an MBT if it hits the tracks or engine deck, or damaging/destroying combat-necessary featu...

...and? My point is that it's stupid to shit on the Bradley's designers for, y'know. Not planning for something they literally had no plans of doing. I'm certain the BMP-1 and -2 did wonderfully in the Chechen Wars. By the same measure, we can't really judge most equipment developed by the US, sinc...

tbf I really don't think the invasion of Iraq is a valid model for P2P conflict. although yeah bradley did kick ass during the invasion. Majority of WarPac countries had similar tanks (55's, 62's and 72M's) and the BMP-2 was even less protected than the Bradley. IIRC Iraq was considered a near peer...

Probs why the US Army trialled the Namer in 2012. Whoopsie, missed a post. Anyways, yes, that they did, before ultimately settling on having troops just use the new MRAP's (dubious move, given the programmes cost). In any case, the point still stands: the Bradley was not terribly suited to the conf...

i think we can apply that to 90% of american military equipment at this point.

I wasn't aware the US occupied Iraq in the 80's.

Neither was I! I had no clue that US planners were fortune-tellers and thought "oh yes we're going to be fighting COIN for a few decades let's make an IFV designed for peer-to-peer anyway lmao!".

Tbh IDF faced a lot of close range actions from insurgents and Syrians and there wasn't much long range combat in Lebanon for example in the 80's. So the Bradley with its turret and the long range TOW missile system was literally unsuited for Israeli needs. What they needed was a heavily protected ...

The idea of requiring the Bradley to be RPG-7 proof without putting slabs of ERA on it is insane yes. You'll end up with a proto-Namer (60 tons). It's funny because in testing for a new APC the israeli's *did* slap a bunch of ERA on the front and junked the turret, before binning the thing and sett...
