There seems to be a really nasty trend for the fighting in Syria. Both sides take up positions of decent cover, and then continuously reveal their position to shoot at each other. No one maneuvers, no one attacks, they just stay in place and try to suppress each other to death.
Almost always, this tactic results in both sides firing until a singular individual gets hit in the face. In this instance, it just happens to be the careless RPG gunner who gets clapped.
I wonder if there are rules to this style of combat. Do both sides continue until a death occurs? Once that death occurs does it signify a defeat for the team who loses a fighter first? I don’t get it honestly.
