One thing that I have always wondered when it comes to war is the stealth side of things- not pure fire power. To inflict a massive blow to the enemy
in both lives and costs, with little or no damage to yourself (not meaning suicide bombers).
Take for example frogmen (divers who can sabotage/ plant bombs on enemy ships). Are they still in use nowadays? A country would be fairly mad going to
attack a warship with its sheer firepower because the outcome is probably going to be disastrous for both sides. If a frog man could say, plant
several bombs around the base of the ship, disappear and watch the fireworks. What defence is there against these people? If they are still in use
I also like the tactics used by special forces involving a laser sight picked up on by jets which destroy the building. Operation done they can just
disappear into the night- much like a sniper.
If there are any other similar tactics used please tell me of them as it interests me greatly. And yes, i'm sure it is apparent my military knowledge
is very limited!
