Hmmmm. Good question. I believe I would fight back. I know, the question is how.
First. I would gather anyone who is not on the other side. Two, everything can be used as weapons or you may make weapons too. Bows and swords are
easy to make and these weapons are quite efficient, lethal and silent. Even if someone has a rifle or greater weapons, from a mass fire arrow attack,
no one can really hide at open place (See how the British did with Longbows. Arrows are able to penetrate body armors pretty well and / or at least
ignite them.). Bows also have a great range and it is great, because unlike rifles, it has a ballistic mode. So you may fire from behind cover, while
the enemy is at open place. Molotov cocktails are also great against armored stuffs, including tanks. Make hit and run actions against the enemy is
also very useful. And so on and so on. This version also can be mixed with different tactics. Oil at the target area, then fire arrows. Burns pretty
well. The essence is that you need to select the place of battle.
Oh. And against copters, well, explosive arrows. C4 and other explosives cannot have fire arms control, so it can be gathered, take them into a sock,
add some tartar, ignite it and fire. It had it's ground version in the second world war, gone to the wheels of the tanks. Now add an arrow and it
will be a medieval missile. Countermeasures are ineffective against it, such as the armor of the copter.
And against aircrafts... taking them out
on the ground. They cannot fly forever.
And this tactics also work in groups and alone. Arrows doesn't have a sound, really hard to trace it's origin and there are bows, which have a fire
distance of 250, maybe 500 meters (Ballistic firing). Taking the enemy out one by one is also have a great moral effect, such as the sniper rifle.
Never the fire rate counts or what sort of damage you may achieve with a missile. What is really matter: how many is that you may take out without
being noticed. And if you surviving, you've won. One man is able to change the outcome of any battle.
There was a nice test few years ago on some sort of military base or what. Who would be able to kill the target. An old fashioned Ninja or a well
armed Elite Force. The Ninja have won, because he was able to sneak in, eliminate the target and leave. And no one notice that the target is being
killed and no one have noticed the base breach. Oh. And the ninja have brought only his bow and sword (Katana or what. I'm not good in this.). While
the Elite Team have brought their most modern weapon, nightvision, etc, etc... (Total cost: Almost a million bucks per soldier.).
