Overwatch Complacency

Recommended Posts


It seems to me that the missions is wrapping up and an Apache is providing overwatch for a Chinook picking up some troops. You can hear several of the pilot's casually banter between each other about the mission when at 1:01 you see the RPG insurgent come into frame. This guy gets into a good fire posiion, albiet poorly defensible one, to fire on the Chinook and then run away like a little girl. Only poor shot placement or dumb luck save the Chinook.

This is an example of letting your guard down and not paying attention to your surroundings. People make mistakes and this was, luckily, not as hard as it could have been.

Remember to pull security whenever you stop movement and if you are on overwatch don't get tunnel vision.

Stay safe!
