Air Force pilots use "dude" over an open mic ?
When I was in the Army, that would earn a serious conversation from the
C.O., at least.
ahhhhhhh therin lies, as they say, the rub....do'nit?
ive had many less than "professional" conversations with guys on my team via radio in the past..."team one, status" "com, we may have something,
wait one" "team one, tank check" "com, did u not here me say f'n wait one? ill give you what i got when i got a min, get off my arse"
even in training trying to take down what you know is a simulated IED while in level A hazmat is a little taxing and i got a bit of slack from the LTC
for my demeanor, however...we had secure radios and it WASNT an open mic...
which brings me to my actual point...arent F15's equiped with singars? if not, why were us lowly WMD guys given cooler stuff than guys with 15
million dollar airplanes? planes worth more than all the equipment my taem had in total?
so, this begs authenticity questions or at the very least, a security breach no?
or am i mistaken about radios in the fighters?
also, should this be real, makes our new OP a very interesting person imho
