The objective of this article is not to get you ready for war. It’s not meant to be an in depth or detailed manual. My aim is to teach or explain basic police and military tactics to fellow gamers so we can get the most out of our PC games. especially in cooperative multiplayer mode. There is tons more to cover, and if you’re interested, then I would suggest picking up a book on the subject. One that I’m reading now is the combat leader’s field guide. A very good read on the topics covered in this article, written by retired Sgt. Maj. Brett Stoneberger.
About my Experience
I spent 10 years in the US Army as a Military Police Officer. We had a dual mission: we performed police patrol work in our surrounding military post and also had a rear area command and control combat mission. We operated in platoon size and squad sizes doing basic rear security and light infantry missions. I personally was on the SRT (Special Reaction Team) and was a dog handler then and a dog trainer while in the Army.
Afterwards I became a civilian police officer and have been one for nine years so far. I started as a patrolman, became a member of SWAT, then the K9 section. I am the tactics instructor for my department, and still work nights with my dog, Shadow.
My hobbies include dog training and computer gaming. I love studying tactics and procedures and read a lot of books on the subject along with military novels and manuals. If I’m not gaming, working, or spending a little time with the family, I’ll be watching the History Channel.
