Actually interestingly, the English stole the idea of the longbow from the Welsh.

I had to have a major surgery to cut out and repair faulty lung tissue. I had to have two chest tubes put into my chest cavity to drain out the excess fluid and air. After taking the chest tubes out there is pretty much just a gaping hole in your side which they cover with Vaseline and gauze only. Soon after having my chest tube taken out and being bandaged back up, I had a coughing fit. It blasted part of the bandage away and suddenly I could hear whistling when I breathed. Breathing heavily sounds similar to making farting sounds with your armpit. **** feels weird man.

I always liked Sun Tzu

"On the high ground stand and let the enemy come to you
On the low ground, maneuver to find high ground and force the enemy to come to you
On the death ground, fight"

That is for defense, and it helps to hide you. How ever, if they are on lower ground and you dig in, then you have a greater advantage. If they have higher ground and you dig in, it does jack ****.

The point I was making was that the ARMY holding the high ground (regardless of weapons used by said army) has an advantage.

lmao.

Kind of the idea. Kinda. Sorta. If you squint while you are looking at it. While drunk or high out of your skull.

Just kidding, but yeah. Mostly we use trenches because it gives you something to put most of your body behind, so that you are a smaller target.

But even then, we really don't use trenches too much any more. We mostly use them for defending camps, and even then, only if its short term. Otherwise we bring in the US Army Engineers and build nice thick tall walls.

unfortunately no, think of this: 2 Platoons of infantry, the other is down in a valley full of trees (concealment) while the other one is on a bare hill, dose feels if you have played ARMA2 ACE/ACRE PVP.

In real life, they would either back up the crest, or dig in, either way being on the hill confers an advantage.

Plus, trees don't offer that great of concealment. Yeah, for the first few minutes they do hide you, but then trees start taking rounds, which can ricochet, or send splinters flying everywhere (which can blind you, or even if you just get a cut, if you are talking a day long battle then it will get infected, and your medic might get shot, any number of ways that can **** you over), plus if you are stuck there long enough a SAW can cut down a tree (and you behind it) pretty damn easily. Then they can throw grenades down at you and possibly knocking down a tree. Or, even using grenade launchers (stand alone units, or attachments to their weapons) to target the trees themselves, or to hit behind a tree and fill you full of shrapnel.

+ WTF are you talking about being infected? a man is down if he's hit that's the end of it. Platoon leader doesnt give a **** about people getting infected until an AAR atleast.

digging in wont work due to already being in the open and under fire, only falling back will work (which is a temporary help due to enemy being able to use the trees as cover for flanking movement, hill is still bare.

My bad, I didn't realize you were talking about wargames. I was talking more real life. In a real life combat situation, even a minor wound that gets infected can take a soldier out of the fight, especially if fever sets in.

sure but that is up to the medic, now I havent gone to the army but if a medic comes to me while im trying to lead the platoon and whine about 1-a few guys getting bad cuts I'd tell him to **** off.

the concept of this situation is 2 highly trained military units having a meeting engagement, you will have soldiers dieing left and right, that means that the wounded wont get proper help until the end of the engagement.

so you are saying a platoon of infantry, without ANY cover will win over another platoon with cover? remember, the Platoon down in the valley also has GPMGs, ATGMs, HEDP-rockets, Grenade lauchers, LMGs, ARs, and a TON of rifles.

Trees DO offer A lot of concealment thanks to it being an INF platoon, not motorised, mechanized, armoured or anything else, remember the platoon down in the valley can spread out all around the hill and be able to EASILY flank the enemy on the hill.

in the mean time the INF on the hill wont be able to move anywhere without being noticed.

Trust me, we have tried this is ARMA.

well I'm quoting tom: ''Hey, its true. No matter what form of combat, the high ground always gives a huge advantage.''

just giving him a situation where it is not good.

sure high ground gives you advantages but you also have disadvantages like exposure and such, at the end it depends of the experience of the commander, can he use the terrain.
