    One of our combat readiness assessment tools:

    In buddy team pairs:

    3 mile run in boots, body armor, kevlar, kit, weapon, and whatever you'd take with you on a mission.

    Once you and your teammate complete that, immediately (still with all your gear on):

    Run to a 35 foot rope, climb up and down
    160lb skedkoe drag for 100 meters
    35 foot caving ladder, climb up and down
    200 meter sprint
    jump over 8 foot wall

    If it takes you longer than 30 minutes to do this, you fail. I think my best time is around 25 minutes, but I've seen some of our studs do it in 22 minutes or less.

    Then sometimes:

    Leading immediately into the EIB weapons and commo lanes, or a stress shoot.

    There are several other physical assessment tools that we use, but that's definitely the worst one. God I fucking hate that thing.

    I literally hate everything in your post, Cassius. That **** sounds cock smashingly hard. I think my buddy and I could do it in under 30 mins, but not too much under..

    PROOF that I'm not a completely useless poster:

    That is not conducive to passionate cunnilingus, my friend, let me assure you.

    Man you must need to pick up some serious speed to jump over an 8 foot wall.
    You are not free whose liberty is won by the rigour of other, more righteous souls. Your are merely protected. Your freedom is parasitic, you suck the honourable man dry and offer nothing in return. You who have enjoyed freedom, who have done nothing to earn it

    Unless you can let your buddy use you as a ramp and then have him help to haul your ass up alongside him. Unless they make you do the wall jump alone.

    I'd have the same issue with the rope as a member up higher. The 3 miles and the 8 foot wall wouldn't be too bad for me. Never worn the gear mentioned as a civ, but I do backpack a couple of times a year with about 75-85 lbs (I think I pack too heavy) and running has always been my strong suit (I've always sucked at real sports, though).

    Individually, none of the events are particularly bad. It's just the fact that you do them all with no break as fast as possible, and you have to do it at the same pace as someone else, who may be faster or slower than you. So you either have to keep up with someone who is faster, or drag someone who is slower.

    Oh yeah, easy for YOU to say! :icon_lol:

    WTF unit/MOS is this for, asks the noob geezer? I used to be a little better, but I can barely haul my old butt through a 3 mile run in under 24:00 now in just PT gear! The rest of that **** just makes me feel old *and* feeble!

    Seriously, though, more power to ya, bro! That stuff does sound like a tough combo. Probly part of why I was a radio operator (our motto? "If ya can't truck it, **** it!") and not a grunt back when I wore the green tree suit. 8)

    Laters.
