All Pilots Need Ground Combat Skills
« on: April 08, 2007, 04:10:05 PM »
Alright men, it's been decided that as well as pilot skills, we all need to start practising for ground combat. Afterall, we need to be able to fight the Cylons on the ground as well as in the sky.
The most important aspect of ground combat is silent communication. It saves lives, so be sure to review the following signals and learn them by heart. Who knows when they could come in handy!

Yea, really Chief we're mostly flying these days...

In any case, I play airsoft as part of a team and I'm going through Army ROTC, so using tactical combat hand signals are more or less second nature to me.

Hmm, that's annoying...the picture of the hand signals we need to learn isn't showing...let me work on that...

EDIT: That will have to do. Follow the link, and get learning!

heheh, oh well

though I do admit I've used "Aim for the Ass" quite a few times. At the Airsoft place I go to, they've got a big ol' poster of the hand signals there. Real fun seeing the noobs use them.

:eek2: wha?! They're...all a joke?

I would love to watch that video now, but there's a taxi on it's way to my place as I type, and I haven't packed yet! I'll watch it when I get back.
