Helicopter gunships are very effective weapon of war, due to its manuverability.
Against them, the conventional military doctrine for lightly armed troops without anti-aircraft weapons is to spread out and run in different
directions, to avoid being shot enmass.
That is only if caught in wide open areas, which those gunships are powerful. However, in built up areas such as cities and population centres, their
effectiveness is cut down several notches, due to the huge number of buildings, numerous windows to hide fighters, line of sights and street obstacles
such as powerlines and towers.
Machines are dead, but the human mind is alive, and can always outwit machines any and everytime, when one pause to calm down and think, focus,
without distractions of panic or fear.
There is no need to run from them. The lightly armed only needs to understand the capabilities and limitations of the choppers, and AMBUSH them.
1. Gunships are patrolling airborne crafts. They will patrol the skies and if they notice movements, espacially if enmassed, they will not give
warning and will shoot first and ask later. This is their capability, which can be exploited.
And that capability is that they are GOOD demolition wrecking machines. With their fire power, espacially missles, they can turn buildings into
The lightly armed commander should make use of that capability to target buildings( empty of inhabitants) to be destroyed, to block acess roads for
the enemy's vehicular traffic. Tanks and trucks will stop, and in those pauses, will be targets to be hit by hidden fighter teams.
Mark out those buildings to be destroyed and an obstacle wall can be created by rubble to block acess roads, or direct traffic into kill zones.
Play out a decoy of figher teams on the ground to attract the gunships, then when it arrives, run into those buildings to be destroyed quickly, into
bunkers with tunnels dug for exit points elsewhere, and let the gunship missles do the rest.
2. Similar with the decoy teams style ambush, plant snipers and heavy weapons on rooftops within a radius of the ambush site. When the gunships go
into attack mode, they will fly low, straight and level, to accurately aim at the target building.
This is their vulnerability., for during that time, they become targets for rooftop or hidden window fire teams to throw everything they got, at the
military conventional style of shooting ahead to hit the moving target.
Once fired, those fire teams MUST quickly get out of the building, regardless if miss or hit, for very soon, support crafts will arrive to bomb
blindly. Rapelling down with harness, gloves and ropes is the fastest way. Freedom fighters may be willing to sacrifice their own lives, but Freedom
Fighter Central will NOT expend any lives when possible, for each is precious.
As for bomber jets, the only way against them is to shift the comand centres and troop concentrations around the city REGULARY. Bombers limitations
are that they have to plan and co-ordinate attacks hours in advance, and often using landmarks such as towers, well known outstanding buildings for
There are more tactics. I am no genius, just an ordinary guy. There are far more intelligent folks than me here and out in the world who could give
even far better concepts. Furthermore, what I wrote is nothing original, but only something that had been adapted from other recent wars that involved
I only share this because the days of when those in power and might can use those weapons to shed blood against innocent fellow humans are over.
Peace can only be obtain from possition of strengths, not from meekness. May those in power know that the People are not as meek as they wish them to
be. Some will submit, but many more will fight back for a common human cause. Let the bloodshed end.
