Calling Combat Int-ers!

Folks - I need a fave.

I have to give a Q1 Backbrief for some utterly spurious exercise tomorrow. Having spent oodles of time at JSCSC, I have been taught the mechanics of it, and as a former member of the glorious Corps (ages ago!) I have been taught how to actually do it as well. Sort of.

What I am really after is a piece of awesome Int Geek bullshit that I can print off and just deliver, to utterly confound the DS. I mean really lay it on. If you really need to know, the Genfor lot are a Lt MR Bde and a Mtn Bde facing 16 Air Asslt Bde in Wales - more or less.

I see this being embedded in the 'Relative Strengths' piece, which always seems slightly pointless when you don't have the output of Q2 and Q3 and no effects schematic, ConOps or COA to develop - discuss!

I would very much appreciate any help you can offer!

Oh, and I am currently collating all my PIRs but if anyone has any equally helpful ones I can add, please do.




I already have 'Where is the En recce' so don't need that one...

Don't mean to sound picky, but you've kinda answered you're own question there. If you haven't got that info, it's gonna be a bit hard for some random 'Int Geek' to help you out. Not to mention that Wales, whilst not a huge place, has some reasonable variation in terrain, so that MIGHT have an effect on enemy tactics. Coupled with enemy intentions (err... Q1), to whit, are they likely to use the mobility afforded them by their Light status to form a vanguard/mobile recce and/or harrassing force or are they being used to back fill previously malletted positions as a stop gap, should give you some idea that your original request is not exactly a mine of ideas for anyone who wishes to provide you with a full and detailed response.

Errr thank you Pchik!

I was only after a selection of good Int-y buzzwords, not an actual functioning G2 update.

Either way, I dug into the corners of my (Ashford) trained brain and delivered the goods.

Cheers anyway, slimers! :D

In the event I used the following phrase:

"The critical path activity is to emplace the effects flag at the appropriate place on the capability/threat gradient"

We decided to play buzzword bingo....

Have you heard of Plain English?

Back in the 90s my arrse would have been slung out of the 432 if I had come up with a phrase like that...too clever by half and the staff would have thought I was taking the p*ss.

What's a 432?

Not technically. I think you'll find that if you stick a new engine in and make the armour a bit fatter you can call it 'Bulldog'. Then you can bluff on that the new vehicle will be providing supreme protection until 2040 at least.

Is that the correct spelling son?

Some pedantic knob will pick you up for that type of insignificant grammatical error.

Fair point, well presented. Not a spelling error, bur a grammatical one. However, fair's fair.

You are still a cnut though.
At least some users can accept helpful advice on spelling and grammar with good grace. As opposed to some others who might disappear down some subjective rabbit hole or other, already brimming with invective.

Yes, a grammatical error, in that you have fucked up the grammar in using "you're" instead of "your". You have also spelt the word you intended to use wrong, so it is both a spelling and grammatical error. A double fuck up, if you will.

It's caused by typing what you think, as opposed to what you know, or in your case, typing what you think you know. I wouldn't have mentioned it, except that that type of mistake is normally one that you pounce on. If I were to weave through the last 12 month's posts and pick up those in which you had criticised people for their spelling, guess I would find quite a few.

So who's the cnut now?
