Does anyone know of any casualties in the gulf war where entire platoons were wiped out. What i'm looking for a case in which an entire platoon was
overwhelmed and everyone was lost. Perhaps something that was hidden under the table, or never made the news? -Thanks
Nope the Iraqi's were way to shell shocked to function, even if they did have skills and they did not. They simply got their ass handed to them in a
hat. Even early on small spec ops teams would sometimes get surrounded and still make it out with overwhelming air support.
OP: What nation's (or nations') troops are you referring to?
I do not know how the Iraqi armed forces were organized back then, however as has been posted previously in this thread, I would not be surprised if
platoon-sized (or larger) elements of them were either completely destroyed, or were MIA after being attacked, and never heard from again.
Where did you hear this? The Iraqis were completely outgunned, outmanned,etc in every way-even the "fearless" Republican Guard were crapping in
their pants like Girl Scouts-I think think we need some more info as to what incident you're referring to-your OP is kind of vague.....
