Training, Equipment, and Mindset MrC !!EfFbUmGRIE 2021-11-30 (Tue) 04:02:11 No. 201 [Reply]
Alright, so I won't go too much into it, but as I'm sure you've all noticed, there is a distinct lack of competent organizations and combat readiness in the left. While it may just be a stereotype, the idea of the skinny and weak anarchist can sum up most of the left that wishes to engage in direct action, mostly by using outdated manuals and romanticized ideas of war. As such, I had, a few years ago, taken it upon myself to release training videos to some of you in order to get you up to speed on the basics of the basics. That, unfortunately, seems to have fallen through on the account of my job, which often has me traveling and doing other things that I won't go into because they are totally uninteresting and unrelated to the topic at hand. As such, we will go into a few key steps you should be taking in order to prepare yourself for introductory training, should it ever be offered to you. Yes, you read that correctly, you must train yourself to be trained. You do not have the luxury of being part of an organized military force, though I would not critique you if that is the route you are wanting to take, as it would be hypocritical. I will limit the topic to individual training, equipment, and self-selection because the whole of military science is a broad topic that is not wholly known by any one individual. Please understand this so that my limitations do not become a hindrance to your growth as a potential combat soldier. Seek training from experienced individuals, even if you have to hide your power level. Consider me just another voice on the internet. I do not intend to use credentials or authority on the subject to get you to do as I say, but I would appreciate it if you thought about a few things.

Great posts OP, but since you're focusing a lot on individual soldier skills and mindsets I'd like to add some things on the basics of how a unit operates. I'm speaking from my limited experience as an infanteer in the Leaf army reserves, so feel free to expand on or correct anything I say.
When it comes to training as a unit or even as an individual, the most important thing is developing a set of battle drills and well, drilling them into your head. This applies to virtually everything you do, whether it's handling your personal weapon, operating in the field, etc. There's a saying about the Roman army, which is that the Romans drilled by fighting bloodless battles, and in combat they conducted bloody drills. A platoon should be thought of like a toolbox in the hands of a commander. Each maneuver is designed to accomplish a particular task, and he should be able to give the word and have his troops be able to carry out what he asks without them having to really think about it. So when he says conduct a recce, the troops assigned to do this should know exactly what they have to do to make this happen. When advancing to contact, they should know what to do when rounds start coming in without having to be told. In other words, the troops in question have to memorize what they have to do to become that particular tool in the hands of their commander whenever he needs them to. The key to this is repetition. Each type of action should be practiced and practiced until it can be done almost purely through muscle memory. In the field you could find yourself going for days without sleep, so you often won't be able to really think about what you're doing. As a reservist my infantry training was pretty barebones, but we still learned the bread and butter including:
>platoon and section (squad) level attacks, both hasty and deliberate >platoon level movement >navigation/orienteering >establishing/evacuating a patrol base >occupation of a defensive position >aussie peels >point, area, and route recces >listening posts >standing to >raids and ambushes >clearance patrols Post too long.

Long shot bumping this thread but I have to ask:
- What exercise programmes do you recommend to get up to standard? And; - How does one go about disseminating this to others?

Seconded, what training programme do you recommend, OP?

Not him but for disseminating info on tactics etc, just do that anonymously in whatever online lefty platforms you know of. You can join your country's armed forces or find someone ex military to train you and then train fellow travellers you know up to your standard. Just be very careful with who you get involved with and don't do anything illegal. Communist militias or whatever are going to be very interesting to glowies who will try and charge you if you use your firearm illegally or some dickhead/informant in your group says you should blow up a federal building on x.x.xxxx (kick them out immediately). A good rule of thumb is don't tell anyone anything they don't need to know. Keep a low profile and don't brag online. Don't let your ego get the best of you.
