I posted this in a similar thread earlier that apparently (and unfortunately) got deleted. I don't know why it got deleted, but I'm going to assume it was because of the flame war going on in there, so I'm going to re-post the links that I gave to military publications in this thread.

For those of you who are interested in tactics, I found some documents that may be of use to you in Arma. All of these are direct links to PDF files, and some of them are quite large. These are genuine, current Army doctrine and training publications. All of these publications and more can be found here: http://armypubs.army.mil/

Great resources! Our group currently uses some the above manuals for our weekly training. We use our RL military members to help adapt what is used in RL to what can be applied to Arma.

Thanks for sharing!

I just added several more to the list, which now includes Marine as well as Army manuals. I will be adding even more to the list as I find them. I currently have 76 documents listed.

Update: I've found some more manuals. Some of them are PDF files, and some of them are ZIP files that contain PDF files.

Important! If your web browser shows the following pages to be an "attack site" it's a false positive. I have personally downloaded each and every one of these ZIP files with no problems.

POSSIBLY UNSAFE LINKS REMOVED

Mine said the same thing, however, I went ahead and told my browser to go to the site anyway and I have downloaded and extracted every ZIP file without any virus, popups or anything else.

Others did the same. They didn't see anything at first, then their virus software caught something. I appreciate these links, but I'm gonna void the malware serving ones, thanks. :)

Hmm, okay. Well, I guess I will have to find another way to get these files to you guys. Maybe I can download all of them, unzip them, scan the PDF, and re-upload them somewhere.

Thanks, I'll look into that.

I understand. I'll see if I can find some direct links to PDF files for those that don't contain any malware. Sorry about that guys, I wasn't purposely trying to get anyone's computer infected.

Nice, this is an outstanding list. Not sure why my thread on tactics got deleted, but yeah, probably because of all the arguing that was going on in there. Thanks for reposting the list.

It got deleted because two people couldn't agree to disagree and leave it at that. Instead they decided to hijack your thread by continuing to argue pointlessly rather than contribute; as a result....the thread was deleted.

I know this because I had just finished typing out a big long post on tactics only to POST and find that the thread no longer existed. .....jerks. haha :P

Re-post it here, I'm sure everyone wanted to carry on the 'tactical' discussion rather than the purpose of a guide. :D
