Thread: Finish NS? or still currently in NS. I got a question for you all.

    ermm.. I still use m16. I haven't had the chance to try the new rifle yet.

    Anyway, isn't it tactically dangerous to be aiming with a torchlight at night? Wouldn't that be giving your position away? Besides in a real fire-fight, I don't think you would have the time to aim with a torch first.

    Anyway, how do you aim your rifle with a torch anyway?

    Aiming with a torchlight?
    Anyway I aim with crosshairs.

    i prefer a scope. a torch is only good for short range and nightime use and the worse thing it gives ur location away.

    Fighting in enclosed places? FIBUA? Likey to dark and smokey, so the strong light will help and blind your enemy.

    In the open jungle, you'll be a sitting duck.

    yeah that's really against what they taught in bmt, light discipline.. so i guess it's mainly for indoors.

    what make you guys think that snipers will come all the way, risk their lifes to hunt down infantry troopers who switched on their L-torches

    ok, i see from Stereobox's pic what "aiming with torch" means now.

    I'm in Arty so I've never trained in FIBUA. But I imagine, even indoors, is it wise to be "hunting" for your enemies with a torch on? Granted you can blind them with it but it would also warn them that you are nearby wouldn't it? I thought that NVGs would have been the way to go in dark enviroments.

    i tot torchlight is oni used momentarily as opposed 2 switching on all d way?

    oni a sudden burst of intense bright light will temp blind d enemy, unless hunting 4 rodents.
