Like it or not fake drops have been around for a long time, and have been used successfully.

What people forget is that SR is dangerous as fuck, especially when the enemy knows the terrain better than you. MACV-SOG recon guys back in 'nam took over 100% casualties some years, and SR was their specialty (and pretty much sole tasking).

Also the SEALs had IFAKs. I doubt they brought a dedicated med pack.

FYI, a certain African nations MRS (Maritime Reaction Squadron) whooped MARSOC during Joint Accord 14 (or 13??)

MARSOC was supposed to lead a diversion on a local harbor while 101'st + local para's did a TALO op.

The 1st MARSOC team got wiped out on the beach and the second got taken out on the quays - neither made any objectives.

And it "counts" because they were using MILES.

Not that guy, and I agree that Red Wings was a clear example of a fuck up, but I also think it's ridiculous that most of /k/ takes the position that the SEALs are completely incompetent and are only good for movies.

If they're truly as bad as everyone thinks, JSOC would have kicked DEVGRU out a long time ago.
>>
>>28633879
I don't think I've ever seriously heard a case around here for how SEALs have issues with performance.

The only criticisms I ever see leveled against them are for their showmanship.

SF and SOF forces shouldn't display any showmanship, or write books detailing classified ops, or write a bunch of lies in a book to pass off a fuck up as a story of heroism.

I take personal offense to any asshole trying to equate a team of 4 or so white devils leading 6-8 locals literally onto the Ho Chi Minh trail to snatch prisoners to a group of our "finest" getting kicked in the cunt by ~12 fighters, after which they felt a MERICA FUCK YEAH book and movie was necessary.

and now that you fucks got me riled up on that nam shit, here you go. the last true operators

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H7vsU8_bZn8

still laffing at fags not knowing that NVA had commando hunting teams specifically in place to catch these particular people.
>that means literally about a brigade of regulars waiting for your 12 man team
>they know you're coming
>they set up prime looking LZs to try to get you
but sure, those guys had it easy compared to SEALs rite?
>>
>>28634177

I agree whole-heartedly with the showmanship. And it's fucking hypocritcal as all hell for NSW leadership to wag the finger and then fucking make Act of Valor.

But I've definitely seen a lot of /k/ posts talking about how terrible the SEALs are generally, with one guy (I think it was tripfag) going so far as to argue that they should disband them entirely and the rest of the Navy for good measure.

And to keep things in perspective, all the books, movies, video games, etc stem from the writings of a handful of SEALs, comparatively speaking, out of a pool of thousands. The problem of showmanship is definitely worse, but I personally think this stems from two issues: the bin Laden raid which guaranteed a shitload of attention and the fact that Navy leadership actually encourages this to ensure a steady stream of recruits, most of which who will drop out and become unhappy bosun's mates chipping paint until their contract runs out.
