Break the track of any tracked vehicle and you stop that tracked Vehicle. Nex you take out the vehicles sighting system and you cause him to shoot blindly. If you happen to be armed with something really bad in the power department, you aim for the Turret Ring. The Turret Ring is where the turret is connected to the tanks shell.
It will be hard doing all of these things. But with the correct weapons anything is possible.
A Track can be broken with something like a big piece of steel. And I mean Big. Stick it where it will ride along on the track when the track vehicle is moving forward or in reverse. It should come in contact with one of the Road Wheels and the piece of metal should not be big around, like a bowling ball. It will work much better if it is pointed on the ends. If you do not have such a piece of steel, try using a big rock.
Sure you will be taking a chance of catching a hand in the track where it goes under the Road Wheel but not a very big chance if you are fast and sure of what you are trying to do.
As one who was trained to repair tanks even though they used me as a gunner instead (Go Army) you are Right on track or should I say getting the track off. Depending on the power compartment, look for the exhaust and oil,fuel stain if you can block the vents another fire ball area. Yep 4 months training to fix them and they put me in an infantry unit packing a 60 walking every where Lol......
Jerry, are commercial electric grounding rods and drift pins (oh, about a half inch in diameter and 6 to 8 feet long I guess) sufficient to clog the arteries of the track or track gear?
I hear ya no matter what your primary MOS Everyone is 11B
Food For Thought.
Any two metal rods or bar stock, even 16 to 20 penny nails of roughly the same lengths can be bent 90deg. and welded together to form road stars or quickly deployed barriers/barracade and or bollards. More and bigger makes some sense here I think.
We shouldn't underestimate what we try to stop though. Some stuff just wont stop it seems. :)
OK ok , I like this line of discussion ,but I'm very partial to "How to defeat recent Generation Helo mounted FLIR" ...
I don't think you can defeat it.
Shoot the aircraft down that's how...
Bolo shotgun shell into the tail rotor is about the only way. http://www.firequest.com/G12-018.html
I was a designer on the AH-64 Apache, it's designed to take hits from 23mm shells and still fly. Rifle bullets would have little effect. And it can shoot back with a 30mm Chain gun.
At one point I was obsessed with beating flir.
Use terrain is what I learned.
as an x-tank commander . all you have to do is take out the drive sprooket in the rear of the tank . that is why we were thought in never turn a tank side ways during a battle . or come up over a hill and expose the bottom
Ditto but if you have a chance dig Spider holes or trenching that can allow you to "Go Underground" if Helo based FLIR is overhead , That can work even with the latest Generation FLIR technology.
