On another forum, a certain TINWALT character has been making outrageous claims, claiming that he knows better than serving and ex-soldiers as to various small-arms and infantary-related topics. The relevant claims are as follows: *Assault rifles (e.g. SA-80) are not effective at 600m (he maintains this even when the PAMS are quoted at him), and that includes SECTION FIRE. *Assault rifles are carbines. *450-500m is the maximum range at which an assault rifle has both the energy and accuracy to kill with a single round. *Assault rifles are not used for section fire at 600m in any army in the world. Apparently we're are confusing assault rifles with MG's (and cannon, but he edited this out). *There's a horrendous bullet drop at 600m in an assault rifle and you'd struggle to raise the barrel enough to his someone (pg. 20 for this little gem). *The M16 has been replaced (pg. 18 ). The relevant thread is this: http://www.ww2incolor.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=60&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0 but it takes a good few pages for the real gems to shine through. There's some other nonsense spoken which gets put to bed quickly, and it's only Tinwalt that maintains his ridiculous position. Another prize quote: Apparently he knows better than the British Army small-arms doctrine (PAM 2 isn't it?), and apparently he's probably fired many times more rounds than Cuts (although he seems to have edited this comment out also). Oh, and Tinwalt's been invited here to play. *ahem* SECTION! 600! ENEMY IN THE OPEN! RAPID... FIRE!
