Yeah when I was in the Army we would use a heavily modded version of Arms 2 to train on. It was amazing at simulating actual artillery trajectories and impacts

It's probably one of the best MILSIM games tbh, DayZ came about as a mod from Arma 2.

Sounds incredibly recursive.

Don't get them started about the Arma 2 expansion pack that inspired the mod which inspired the base game.

In order to understand recursion, first you must understand recursion

A couple of years ago, a solider in the UK was charged with disobeying orders for teamkilling in a VBS training exercise.

A Reddit mod just creamed his pants at the thought of being able to punish someone in real life for not playing by the rules of their game.

Are ladders as deadly in the army as in arma i always wondered

This is also likley why the army sucks at any operations that involve going underground

Boy step over here and let's have a talk for a second, okay?

Now listen you don't go and say that word in front of these guys. They're tough, all of 'em. But inside when someone starts gettin on about those things, it digs up some bad stuff, okay? Stuff they'd all really rather forget about.

Hell Half my company went on profile from ladders. They were in back at the motor pool, Christ knows how they got there. S1 still said afterward that they weren't supposed be there, but fuck, they're supposed to know that shit, aren't they? By the time First Sausage returned the basement after beating those PV2s that were on the grass, it was already too late. So many profiles, so much lost paperwork... All for nothin.

See that guy over there with the box on his head? That's /u/SpiritedSoul. He lost his Platoon Sarnt to a ladder, happened right in front of him. Now you tell me how a just and fair God would do something like that to someone like him?

Godammit you even got me going, now... Listen, just.. think about who's around when you bring things up, okay? Not tryin to make you feel like an ass or nothin, but just in the future give it a second.

I was an FO and one time had to climb a ladder two stories with my radio in full MOPP gear in the Carolina summer… yes ladders are as deadly as they are in Arma
