Effective Small Arms Suppression

World Conflict Films posted a video that provides the viewer with a look of what it’s like to be on the receiving end of suppression fire. What was missing is your opponent trying to roll up your flank while your head is down This guys was in dire need of air support. Good video!

The following video shows a Shia militia fighter of the Iraqi Popular Protection Units (PPU) being accurately engaged by Islamic State fighters in northern Iraq. Several rounds strike the sandbag fortifications near his head. A few rounds even rip through. The militiaman knows that if he exposes his head, it will be removed by hostile fire, so he is only able to ineffectively blind fire back in the general direction of his foe. The incoming suppressive fire doesn’t strike the fighter, yet the man is still rendered useless in the ongoing gun battle.
