what's basic training like for your cunt?

For us it's kind of tough. I went to Ft. Benning. It was 9 weeks, male only. Nothing like Full Metal Jacket, but definitely very difficult.

What's it like for you guys?

>pls no /pol/

none of you guys been in the military?

Been a long time but its how I remember it-

12 weeks, its not very difficult.
First week is mostly assessments, medical and gear issuing
After that there's about 3 weeks of weapon handling, PT, close combat, how to use a radio and rifle marksmanship
Next 5 weeks is a lot of PT, some mental fuckery on how to behave, 1st aid, basic navigation and light support weapons
I think they might get allowed to throw grenades, play with bayonets and a lot of swimming in there too. Oh and drill, marching finally some days off if you're not a fuckup
Last 3 weeks was field exercises various team challenges, some in-field navigation, various practical fieldcraft and patrol exercises

Then they get their marching out and sent off to various places and your arse is owned by them. In my case I ended up in military college for about 18 months

That's the minimum, but you're expected to far exceed that.
42 I believe is the minimum for my age group for push ups but if I do any less than 60 they basically call me a piece of shit who isn't trying hard enough

Yeah, since it's on his left shoulder, which is where your unit patch is worn. If it's on the right it means that's the unit who deployed with

Uncle and step-father were in the army. They say jungle training is pretty much hell, hot, shitty conditions and you had to get your own food and manage to get back to the base in 5 days.

GIGS is the most fucked one, 8 weeks of pure hell, you don't sleep, barely eat and it's physical torture all the time. Lots of "recruits" died on it. People from foreign armies go there to get trained as well, they barely pass.

>>54903762

lol what a pussy.

Did they also "estrearam" you?

>They say jungle training is pretty much hell
Pretty much what everyone says about jungle training from what I've read or heard.

Constantly wet and hot, foot infections issues from wet feet, rashes and skin infections from being wet and chaffing, and then having to fend off venomous snakes and insects all the while.
>>
>>54904312
Apparently the Army's jungle course gives a tab that can be worn, just like the sapper and ranger tabs, but I have yet to see a single person with it
>>
>>54904312

Yeah, like i said the CIGS is the most fucked one, i think it's the worst one in the world. Only sargeants and other high ranks can do it. Armies of the world send them there to train, including US army. I think no more than 300 people had passed the course in 40 years of existence.

It's in portuguese but it gives the idea.

How does spending a few days in a jungle prepare most of our army to combat the threats they will most likely face?

I currently serve in the swiss army, air force troops. Basic training took 7 weeks here. To be honest, it wasn't that though. But we aren't the infantrymen at the front in case of an attack on our country. I now work on the communication systems and get a good bit of knowledge.

These are bad moments from the whole service:

-Unit trains rangers and recon switching every few years. Recon guys have the latest toys military has to offer. Us rangers get nearly all equipment from the 80's because apparently "we'll die anyway".

-Regional Office messes up and sends too many new conscripts to the unit. Instructors don't send anyone back initially but just increase BS level. After six moths (half way for me) over 40% have been send away due to reasons ranging from stress fractures to psychological problems. HQ gets angry.

-Training different movement styles in a sand pit because why not. Crawling for hours in the sand. At the end of the day everyone has road rash in their arms, legs and stomach and some are bleeding. Unit's nurse almost runs out of gauze and bandages.

-Instructor throws satchel charge at us to see how fast we take cover.

-At live fire exercise. Everyone should sleep at least six hours a night. Nope. We spend our nights burning wet leaves and twigs in a big bonfire because the training area needed to be tidied up. Combat shooting feels a bit unsafe when you are about to fall asleep.

-In the woods. Someones ruck isn't properly camouflaged. Team is ordered to move our supply stash from point A to point B and back in the middle of night. After 20km and hundreds of kgs of equipment moved back and forth, everyone has properly camouflaged rucks.

-Cleaning the barracks. A bit of cosmic dust is found undera a bed. Repeat cleaning 10 times every evening.

-There's still more cosmic dust. Our room is seized because "we can't keep it clean enough". Everyone sleeps outside.

-In the woods for the Nth time. Not even the rainsuit is waterproof. It's December, sleet pouring horizontally for a week and temperature is around 0C. All clothes are wet after two days. Nothing burns in the tent stove. Near the end no one bothers with the tent anymore and sleeps in wet clothes under some big spruce. Whole body hurts for a month afterwards.

Etc.

I once went to a military camp in Mexico and they did the zipline thing (they wanted me to try it but I was scared) and they would run all around the place with their rifles. I was 6 at the time so I don't remember much.

You think those companies that makes this weapons care about nationality?
Hell if the U.S ever goes to war with another country, those companies are willing to supply both sides.
