Another example of cover vs. concealment....

Cardboard box....concealment....not cover...

Lets review:

  • Concealment - Any object or geographical feature that can prevent the enemy from observing you...
  • Cover - Any object or geographical feature that can prevent the enemy from observing you and provides protection against enemy fire.



Iraqi tanks in the first gulf war thought hiding behind sand berms would provide cover from American M1's ....while they did provide concealment the US tank crews used their thermals to figure out where they were and sent sabot rounds through the berms and into the tanks....see, I told you on Monday that the M1 was awesome.

Big difference there folks....for those of you with a defensive plan at home to huddle in a "safe room" just be cognizant that most drywall walls will easily be penetrated by pistol rounds...same for most doors found in the interior of homes as well.

And for what its worth, Purolator is a name I trust...unpaid advertisement there...
