  1. The MP5SD6 variant of the MP5SD has a retractable stock and a 3-round burst trigger group.
  2. For A Pistol the HK USP Variant 9 in 9mm Parabellum For A SMG the HK MP5SD6 with a Aimpoint CompM2 scope. For a Assault Rifle the M4A1 with a M203 GL and a Aimpoint CompML2 Scope.
  3. Just for the record, Richard Marcinko was thrown into jail for defrauding the government over the price of some spec-ops grenades.
  4. After reading some of the comments that have been published in this forum, I find that I do disagree with the fact brokered in these forums that Richard Marcinko was a rebellious as****e, and that he broke the rules; Well what rules and orders did he break?. During Vietnam, most of the 'Officers' that were serving there, did not have any combat experience in the field. In fact all of the experience that they had was sipping champagne at parties, and kissing the ass of Generals and Admirals, to get higher rank. The men that the commanded were not seen as men to command and protect, they were there to get another star on their shoulders. The real Commander is the one that practices the two main words of leadership, 'Follow Me'. They look after their men, train them for War and keep them safe from all the BS flying around. They get the equipment they need to perform the mission, whether the top brass like it or not. One great example of this kind of leadership, is a man named Roy Henry Bohem, the 'Godfather' of SEALS. When SEALS were first created, the top brass wanted Roy and his men to carry M14 rifles and 9mm pistols. The M14 is a terrific rifle up to a thousand yards, but Roy knew that in the jungle of Nam they would be useless. To his credit, Roy bypassed the top brass, and bought AR15's and .357 magnums for his men. WHY? Because those weapons were what the mission required. Richard Marcinko may be a loudmouth, and Yes, his ego may be big, but Dickie did what was best for his men, and the mission that they were serving. He gave them the right weapons and equipment for the job, promoted 'saturation' training, and protected them from the other ass-kissers who thought they were just a bunch of long-haired, tough, knuckle-dragging, loudmouth ass***es who weren't fit to serve. A good commander understands this. If you can give the men you lead, the right weapons, equipment and training for the job. If you can show them that you will do everything they will do, and then some. If you understand that the command that you are given is your total responsiblity and accept full blame for all the mistakes that your men make under your command. You are a ######**G LEADER, and you men will FOLLOW YOU INTO HELL if that is what it takes. 'A Commander is forgotten, but a LEADER is remembered'
  5. I suppose that politicians would be of use in SpecWar. We could send them into an enemy camp, they could bore the enemy asleep, and then Special Forces could go and kill the tangos (and maybe some of the politicians). Any other thoughts?
  6. Just one question to all the ghosts here. If UBI decided one day, to put together a soundtrack for Ghost Recon 2 or a music CD with 12 spaces for tracks. What songs would you choose?. It could be anything from Rock, Classical, R'n'B, Country and Jazz. It could have songs from Radiohead, Foo Fighters, Beethoven, Bach, Run DMC, Miles Davis or even music from films such as Apocalypse Now (maybe Ride Of The Valkyries). If you had your choice, what would be on your CD?.
  7. Radiohead - Hail To The Thief Foo Fighters - One By One, There Is Nothing Left To Lose Massive Attack - Blue Lines, 100th Window
  8. After playing the single-player campaigns again, I've recently been wondering just what amount of time it takes to complete a mission, and whether this would be the same for anyone else. Please add your thoughts and opinions.
  9. In the early 1970's, a couple of years after Black September, the SAS saw the need for a hand-held distraction device that could be used to subdue terrorists. This idea for this device was given to a special weapons research centre in the UK and the flashbang was built, with the first real test of it's use in the 1977 Mogadishu assault by GSG-9. The modern-day flashbang e.g the CTS Model 7290, has an effective range of 5 feet with 6.2 million candlepower and 175db in 8 milliseconds of time, which is enough to scare the bejeezus out of any hostage of Tango Adam Henry in the room. Alternative models of flashbangs, however may be quite different in power, but thery are all designed to do the same things. DISTRACT
  10. One good book to read is 'Eye Of the Storm' by Peter Ratcliffe. Ratcliffe was the Regimental Sargeant-Major of the 22nd SAS, during the Gulf war and was sent over to the Gulf. Normally the role of the RSM is mostly stock-keeping and records, but due to an incident involving a SAS squad during ground operations he was sent in by the CO to take command of the squad and conduct operations. It's a very good read, and one of the major points of this book is that in one of the afterwords, he gives his account of the stories that 'Andy McNab' and 'Chris Ryan' give in their books, which collaborates with the information given in the book `The Real Bravo Two Zero`.
  11. In theory, it would probably be possible, IF you shot high enough so that the round would hit in the right place while it sinks down due to humidity and if the round was hot enough so that the velocity was the same, and IF the ground was flat enough and there were no obstacles in the way. NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE
  12. The G36 and the G41, are by far in my opinion, the most reliable assault rifles in the world. There is no evidence to the fact that any G36 rifle has jammed in any combat situation by the forces that use it, and there is also one G36 rifle that has fired more than 25,000 rounds without a jam.
  13. After playing Ghost Recon in SP and MP using various mods, I have become increasingly fond of suppressed weapons in the Ghost Recon enviroment. Although the use of supressed weapons is limited in some factors, being decrease of muzzle velocity, I have found that I have become increasingly fond of them, as they offer me a way to confuse my enemies, as I eliminate them one by one, or two by two, as the case may be. Does anyone else's opinion, run parellel to mine?. Your replies are welcome.
  14. After reflecting on the the long time that I have been playing GR, I remember back to when I first started playing on multiplayer, and trying to find servers that specfically catered for newbie players, which was quite difficult at the time, and frustrating when I played, as I kept being slaughtered, by the better players. Now, after having a few friends at my workplace, who are new to Ghost Recon and wish to play with others like themselves, new to the game. Would any war-weary veterans like to jot down any servers IP's that cater for new players like you were. If you can, I salute you!.
  15. In a real-world situation, the SEALS would have survived the Shower Room situation. There is no sound military doctrine that does not include a diversionary tactic. Seconds before the SEALS would enter the Shower Room, a pair of helicopters would most likely cause some if not all of the Marines to one area. The SEALS would then send a point element to recon, then when there was no movement, they would split into two teams with each team covering one side of the room. You can see this when they enter the boiler room. When they enter first, they set a perimeter, check the area is clear, then move forward. Remember the point of the story was to get the SEALS out of the way of the story, NOT to be REALISTIC
  16. It does depend on the type of situation. Reflex sights are more useful in CQB or HR situations, when quick reactions are best. Aimpoint and ACOG sights are best for use at distances or silent kills using an HK MP5SD6.
  17. In my personal opinion, I would say the 22nd SAS Regiment, because they get the most work. Don't forget that they also operate in Northen Ireland, as well as other duties.
