A formation of troops decides to march down the middle of the road. Things do not end well for the platoon when they meet an ATGM.
There’s a pretty old rule in modern warfare. It’s very simple to follow, and I know that as an infantryman, it was my all time favorite rule. No walking in formation while you’re in a combat zone. Of course… Camp Fallujah and Camp Leatherneck happened, and mass Garrison broke out inside of a war-zone, but that’s neither here nor there.
These Syrian troops learn exactly why it is that you shouldn’t do formation movements while you’re in a combat zone. While walking down the road to their favorite cadence, they come into direct contact with a flying missile.
It appears as if the idiot platoon sergeant appears to be the only survivor. As for the rest of the platoon, well they look a lot like a skid mark now.
