People: Look at this photograph. I can see (on enlargement), 28 tanks and armored vehicles. If you had 200 brave mujahids facing this group of vehicles who were about to attack your position, what would you do as leader of the mujahids (correction added later)? What weapons would you need? What would help?
I find the tanks not accompanied by sufficient infantry. Assuming 14 BMP, 14*7=91 troops and I have an advantage in manpower.
First, I'll disperse my team. Fixed position against tanks is dangerous.
Secondly, I know the lay of my land. I’ll use my mujahids during peacetime to build trenches and dugouts and position. Atleast 10 times more positions than the number usually required. I’ll make them dig like crazy and pre-stock those positions with RPG & MMG rounds.
Thirdly, I'll divide my team into herders and butchers.
Fourthly, instead of defending the border, I'll let the column come in some distance. I know the inland approaches and I know the tank column also knows inland approaches via UAV/aerial recon. I'll have my herder team mine those approaches. Herder team carries mines and MMG to protect the miners.
Fifth, I'll position butcher teams forward of the herder teams. But they’re to stay silent and dug, or the penalty is castration. No radio communication. Butcher team carries RPG and MMG, and maybe some HJ/BS missiles.
Fifthly, only when Butcher teams hear tanks blowing up in the minefield are they to engage. Butcher team is to engage ONLY at the back of tanks and NOT front or sides. Set fuel, engine and ammo on fire.
The disposition then will be as follows -
(Tanks initial position) – (Butcher team – initially silent) - (Tanks later position) – (Herder team)
(Tanks engage minefield set by Herder team)
(Butcher team engages tank's vulnerable areas from behind)
Sixthly, destroy engineering/support/recce vehicles/teams first when the tank column stops. Cut the fingers. Forearm is useless without fingers.
Seventhly, change positions. Not more than a single volley allowed per position. Pre-stocked dugouts (second point) allow my men to move lightly.
Eighthly, have my machine gunners engage any troops that come out of BMP's to engage.
If the armoured column stops to clear me, I buy time for my larger defenses like Cobra choppers and TOW armed M113 to rush in, my objective is achieved.
If the armoured column bypasses me, then it’s the other mullah’s headache and not mine.
