This video breaks down the infantry's "smallest tactical unit," introducing its basic composition and weapons, plus an examination of squad teams and the Buddy System. It all starts here.
Note: Many of the quotations used in this video were originally compiled during the pursuit of private study and well before I had ever entertained the thought of starting a YouTube channel. As such, I was lax with the citations; they are not up to the standard of my subsequent videos. The final quote in this video was only vaguely credited in my notes to the "Infantry Journal, 1947." Recently, while researching another topic, a fortuitous page-turn led me to the original quote. The updated citation follows.
Edwin R. Shackleton, Jr. (A/71). "Rifle Squad," The Infantry Journal, Vol. 60, No. 4, April 1947, p. 76.
This video covers some of the fundamental tactics, techniques, and procedures of the rifle squad in offensive combat. It presents the conduct of a squad attack, including the approach march, fire fight, fire and movement, assault, consolidation and reorganization.
The M47 was a relatively short-lived MBT (then called “medium tank” created to replace the M46 Patton/M26 Pershing and the M4 Sherman). It was widely produced to fit the needs of the US Army, US Marines, but also NATO nations as a whole as a stopgap measure before new models could be built locally. Although a good all-over tank, the M47 Patton was used only for a few years, before its replacement by the M48 in 1953 which was really a generation ahead. Declared obsolete in 1957, the impression it left and service time nevertheless far outlasted the fifties under other colors. The Soviet T-54 was modified to face it and the M47 defeated many foreign-built models with success, even taking part in massive tank battles Chieftain's Hatch M47 Pt1 Chieftain's Hatch M47 Pt 2 M47 Patton
Heavy Gear is set on a distant, fictional planet called Terra Nova around 4,000 Earth Standard Years from now (AD 6132). Terra Nova was once the pride of the United Earth Government's colonies. However, an economic collapse forced the UEG government to abandon Terra Nova and all its other colonies centuries before the period depicted in the game setting, leaving Terra Nova in a dark age. Eventually, City-states rose from the ashes and either through treaties or tyranny, united to form national unions called Leagues. These Leagues would in turn ally (again either peacefully or forcibly) to form the superpower blocs that dominated the temperate southern and northern hemispheres of the planet.
