  1. We in the US Army don't use full auto M16's anymore. It is a waste of ammunition. Also, the standard M4 does not come with auto, just semi and 3 round burst.

    Dont change the fact that a full auto M16 wasnt used. It was standard issue over 20 years, and most known through Vietnam. That was the M16A1 if your thinking a 3-round burst M16A2 was used at the time.  :nono:

    Note that he did say "don't use full auto M16's anymore."

    And he said that "he only full auto M16 series weapon we have had (as long as I have been in) has been the M231 Firing Port Weapon." so maybe he didn't come across any.

    ;)

    EDIT: and heres a quote from www.world.guns.ru that you directed to

    This switch has 3 positions: "safe", "semi" (single shots), and "auto" (full automatic on M16A1 and A3) or "burst" (3 rounds bursts, on M16A2 and A4).

    though on the COLT manufacture site there are full auto models.

    And OkieCowboy, maybe you should show a little more respect or tolerance to the people that to you seem to be intellectually behind you

    there always PC gamer magazines!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    god the idiots in this world

    from another thread

    It dont take a genius to know simple horse ###### like this.
  2. Tensions between British forces and Shi'ites in southern Iraq are at a dangerous and chaotic low after British armoured forces smashed down a jail wall and freed two British undercover soldiers who had been arrested by Iraqi police.

    Iraqi authorities in the southern oil city of Basra claimed that British armoured vehicles demolished part of its main jail and snatched the two men - reported  to be SAS commandos in Arab clothing who allegedly fired on Iraqi police officers yesterday.

    Britain's Defence Ministry, though, said the two men were released as a result of negotiations. But it stopped short of denying that the jail had been raided.

    Whatever the truth, the incident was part of a chaotic day of rioting, in which at least two Iraqis were killed.

    The clashes raise questions about how much sovereignty Iraqi authorities have really been granted when the US-led Coalition Provision Authority handed over power to an interim Iraqi government in the northern summer of 2004.

    It's not clear what effect it might have on the work of Australian troops protecting Japanese forces in the city of Samawah, north-west of Basra.

    Outside Basra jail, a melee broke out in the streets as angry demonstrators attacked the encircling British armour with stones and Molotov cocktails.

    During the chaos, one British soldier could be seen scrambling for his life from a burning Warrior armoured personnel carrier and the rock-throwing mob.

    Press Association, the British news agency, reported that three British soldiers were hurt during the violence, but said none of their injuries was life-threatening.

    After nightfall, 10 British armoured vehicles returned to the jail, crashed through walls and freed the two captives, witnesses said. An Associated Press reporter saw the vehicles smash into the jail.

    While witnesses and officials said the British raid used "tanks," it was not clear whether the tracked vehicles were Challenger 2 Main Battle Tanks or Warrior Infantry Fighting Vehicles, both in use by British forces in Iraq.

    The arrests of the two British soldiers yesterday appeared to have been the first real and public test of how far that sovereignty extends.

    There have been no known incidents of Iraqi authorities arresting US soldiers operating in the Iraqi heartland.

    Mohammed al-Waili, the governor of Basra province, condemned the British for raiding the prison, an act he called "barbaric, savage and irresponsible".

    "A British force of more than 10 tanks backed by helicopters attacked the central jail and destroyed it. This is an irresponsible act," al-Waili said, adding that the British force had spirited the prisoners away to an unknown location.

    Aquil Jabbar, an Iraqi television cameraman who lives across the street from the Basra jail, said about 150 Iraqi prisoners fled as British commandos stormed inside and rescued their comrades.

    While the Shi'ite-dominated south of Iraq, where 8,500 British troops are based, has been far quieter than US-patrolled Sunni regions to the north, Britons have come under increasingly frequent attacks in recent weeks.

    The British military has reported 96 deaths since the war began in 2003.

    That compares with the deaths of 1,899 Americans elsewhere.

    Basra authorities reported arresting the two Britons, described as special forces commandos dressed in Arab clothing, for allegedly shooting two Iraqi policemen, one of whom died.

    British armour then encircled the jail where the two Britons were held.

    Television cameramen from Arab satellite broadcasters in the Persian Gulf were allowed to photograph the two men, who appeared to be Westerners and who were by that time sitting on the floor in the jail in blue jeans and T-shirts, their hands tied behind their backs.

    One of the men had a bandage covering most of the top of his head, the other had blood on his clothes. Television commentary identified them only as Britons.

  5. Some mods already have that option, well atleast in certain missions. For example, CO2, one of the missions where you start off with one clip and to finish the mission you basically have to salvage weapons and ammo from the enemies you kill.

  6. ;) Thanks PB!  Have you installed the standard update mod?  I tried installing the patch but it keeps saying that "there is nothing to update" although I do have the SU folder in mods folder.  Do I install it into Ghost Recon/Mods or just Ghost Recon/?

    I can't remember exactly, just try it in the SU folder, if that doesnt work, try the mods folder, and if it still can;t find it try the ghostrecon folder. gotta love trial and error :P

  7. Canadian Ops 2.0a.

    I just love this mod !! Try the Chalet mission, it is one hard SOB. The skins are beautiful and very nicely detailed , as well as the weapons.

    Gangland is also a good mod.

    Definetly, all the more fun in multiplayer too. :rocky:

    This damaged Humvee of the 4th platoon, 617th Military Police Company, 503rd MP Battalion, 18th MP Brigade, was the lead vehicle during an insurgent attack on a Coalition supply convoy March 20 about 18 miles southeast of Baghdad. This particular Humvee received small-arms fire and a direct hit from a rocket-propelled grenade above the right-side passenger window during the attack. The 4th Platoon Soldiers mission was to (shadow) the convoy and provide additional security against such an attack. Twenty-seven insurgents were killed, one was captured and six were injured.
