Biological suits

I know most of you have survival kits, but how many of you have anything for biological attacks?

What they need, is to put their head between their legs, and kiss their butt good bye.

Planing only goes so far in the age of modern weaponry, pure luck will be the cause of most who survive such attacks.

I think the only thing to have would be a few of your favourite bottles of spirit, whatever your favourite is go for it, everything else would be pointless............

I think it will come down to the old real estate cliche.

Location, location, location.

The trick here will be finding a location that absolutely no one else will have any interest in. By definition, it will mean that the location will suck as a place to live.

You guys are under the impression that in the far-out case of WW3, you would bug-out until it's over?

What part of world war is confusing you fellows? Either you fight or you perish.
Either you're fighting in the battlefield or you're working on systems used on battlefields. Bullets, tanks, whatnot. Either you stand united or EVERYTHING you knew will be gone and you will fall under the authority of foreign powers.

I'm no imperialist or war monger, but in case of a world war I would definitely know where to stand.

First-strike? Where?

You can't be that pretentious as to claim there wouldn't be any fall out. There is not just ONE team that has a nuclear bomb now, or dirty nuclear devices, or even biological weaponry. That's the danger. Why do you think it really didn't come to a military showdown between the US and the Soviets?

You dont need anything, your government would give you everything you need in war. Rather spend that money stocking up your fridge and living the good life cause if WW3 had to happen you would wish you had done more before it started

Chem-Bio suits and masks all degrade over a releatively short period of time in a contaminated enviroment. They pretty much are only good for 24 hrs in a heavily contaminated area.

Which makes them good for getting your butt out of that area, but little else.

They are bulky and expensive.

Also, when you are in MOPP4/5, you can become a heat casualty rather quickly and it is hard to communicate as well.

A 1st Aid kit is always handy though.

they used to make us run do an assault coarse and then fire down the range and expect us to hit the f-ing target in full noddy kit (nbc kit) you couldn't breath the s10 respirator was like trying to breath through a straw you had sweat all your water out and was just about to die and that was just 2 1/2 mile , imagine what you would have to run to get away from chemical or nuclear attack ,

N.B.C. suits but I have not seen child sizes and the better are more expensive.

An NBC (Nuclear, Biological, Chemical) suit is a type of military personal protective equipment designed to provide protection against direct contact with and contamination by radioactive, biological or chemical substances, and provides protection from contamination with radioactive materials and some types of radiation, depending on the design. It is generally designed to be worn for extended periods to allow the wearer to fight (or generally function) while under threat of or under actual nuclear, biological, or chemical attack. The civilian equivalent is the Hazmat suit. The term NBC has been replaced by CBRN (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear), with the addition of a new threat, radiological, meaning radiological weapon.
Sometimes they are called chemsuits or chem suits or chemical suits.

I transistioned to NBC from Recon thinking that it could further my education. After all, our NBC guy did pretty much nothing but go to school all the time.

I was in for a rude awakening, after transistion, I was sent to a Chem Company. We spent more time in the field than the Grunts and a lot of that in MOPP 4. Definately a miserable time in my life. But it did further my education... to a degree. I never knew I had math skills before that. LOL.

After three years, I figured that the frying pan was cooler than the fire and transistioned back to recon, though I was still additional duty'ed with the NBC crap.

To many people watch movies of guys running around in CBRN and think that they could do it as well. The reality is MUCH different.

Too True.

People ask me now that I am retired if I miss the Army. I always tell them, nope. I missed the old Army while still in the "New" Army.

Now if you'll excuse me, but this old dinosaur must shuffle off to the nearest tar pit.

Survival of any apocalypse is going to depend less on preparation, and more on luck as well as adaptability and skill set.

The first thing lost in any battle, is usually any plans that were made.

A small library of books like Farmer's Almanacs, Medical textbooks, Medicinal and Edible plant guides, textbooks and material for how to create electricity and other such will be invaluable.

What you don't know, you can then learn, as well as teach.

After any apocalypse, there's going to be plenty material laying around left by everyone that ran for the hills to get themselves killed by starvation and over competition with everyone else that ran for the hills, if, whatever enemy there is, isn't already waiting in the hills to pick off everyone running to them since humans are so easily predictable like lemmings that way.

Best strategy; learn your sciences, botany, medicine, chemistry, simple engineering, and other such with emphasis on improvisation.
Wait. Enjoy life.
If apocalypse comes, and you survive, stay put wherever you are because your home ground is home ground; ground you know that you can use for shelter, defense, and hiding.
Everyone else will run, so, you'll have most of the whole place to yourself as well as what most people left behind, including their homes, food left behind in pantries, gasoline left in cans in garages, lawn mowers, cars left behind, solar cells on signs everywhere, batteries in cars, and everything civilization left behind has on offer.

With so many people running to the hills, any wildlife in the hills will be displaced and go to where the people are no longer hanging around, which means wildlife will move into the urban areas leaving you with plentiful game.

If you don't live in a major city, the best place to run to in any apocalypse is the place where everyone else is running away from. over competition with and among other panicked people will be one of your biggest concerns if you survive the immediate cause of whatever apocalypse.

Go where there are no people, usually where there people are running away from, because any place that doesn't have lots of people now, like the magical hills people always seem to imagine themselves running to in event of an emergency, will be flooded with people.

Stay where you are at, or go where people are running away from.
