Patches? We don't need no stinkin' patches!
But seriously, what good are patches going to do? If I am fighting your people, I'm going to take out a patrol from a distance, dispose of the
bodies, and take their clothes and gear. So now I'll have your groups patch, meaning that I can infiltrate and slaughter everyone from within
whatever perimeter you have established.
Even if you know everyone in your group, I will at least get to your checkpoint by having my face all camouflaged or wearing a shemagh, and since I am
in your uniform, I will definitely be able to get that far. Then it's a quick one-two and your guards are dead and perimeter is breached. I'll
probably fall back, taking bodies with, and rinse and repeat with increased forces.
Better yet, I can always be carrying my buddy so it looks like he got shot and we're coming back in a hurry, because your guards will try to help me
at which point they have dropped their guard and we both open up on you guys.
Relying on a patch for friend/foe is overly simplistic and will get you killed if the s really does h t f
