The 2 M249s in a squad/section are 80% of the firepower, doesn't make sence to give it to a wide-eyed private. I'll always give them to the two best corporals when I'm making the decision.

    I'm trying out all the american rations. Canadian rations are the prefered ones in Nato apparently, I can trade one Canadian Ration for about 3 or 4 american ones (or a million british) but it's something different. Little on the greesy side though but the M&Ms and tobasco sause make up for it, usually.

    I can't get over how team orientated the americans are. No matter who you are or what your after they always go out of their way to help you out. You guys are fucking awesome to work with.
    You havent had a ration til youve had the French ones. I swear to God guys were selling their sisters just for half of what those gents were packing. Veal? Rabbit? wine? the frogs got it made.

    13 man squads thats awesome. Ours are 8 (dismounted). Fire team is 2 guys, assault group is 4.

    I don't like our 203s. The gov't was worried about the tube getting too hot from firing and I guess maybe cooking off a round or something so they lowered it, now its too low IMO.
