Another Salamander Rule validated

Again; once the shooting starts - you realize that your design does not have enough general purpose guns. From WWII to Vietnam to The Falkland Islands War - it has always been true.

On the ground, in the sea and in the air.
(For the MV-22 in AFG)...the Remote Guardian gun system .... is being retrofitted at Leatherneck as we write. And the Corps has changed the rear-​​mounted M240 7.62 machine gun to a .50cal.
The penny pinching half-truth loving people always ignore sound military practice so that better men will fix the problem - at higher cost - later.

They never fail to fail.

Hat tip Lee.
