Expendables 3 (2014)

 

 

 

Expendables 3 promotional poster with full cast

 

 

Now on general release. Lots of action. Lots of guns. Quite a lot of drama. And a lot of wristwatches. Mel Gibson gets the best part, with a lot of acting and some long speeches. Some stellar lines, the best delivered by Harrison Ford

I imagine some critics deem the Expendables series as unsophisticated but there are many sophisticated double-entendres and motion picture references in it that you almost need an Ardern Shakespeare to follow them all. copyright www.mitteleuropa.x10.mx https://twitter.com/verlagmeyer

Expendables 3 (2014)
Helicopter chase: The main problem with helicopters is that they are vulnerable to ground fire. They are slow-moving beer can. An easy target, even for some one with a rifle. Imagine there is a flag-pole protruding from the nose of the helicopter. Now aim for the end of the flag pole, adjust your next shot as required. Tracer makes it almost too easy.

From a helicopter your tactics need to be surprise, to kill your enemy before he sees you, and concealment: Hiding behind cover. Pop-up to shoot. Being right up in the air and taking a lot of ground fire is uncomfortable.

Expendables 3 (2014)

In Expendables 3 (2014) and Expendables 2 (2012) Arnold Schwarzengger playing Trench Mauser carries an Atchisson AA-12 assault shotgun designed by Maxwell G. Atchisson in 1972. When fitted with the 20 round drum magazine and loaded with twenty 2.75" magnum shotgun shells containing 00 buckshot, which is twelve .33" diameter spheres, the gun discharges all rounds in four seconds (360rpm), which gives two hundred and forty .33" projectiles. The prime forte of the AA-12 is in ambush-busting , where you have to return fire, sometimes unaimed, toward the source of the enemy fire in order to try and break the ambush. Military tactics for ambush-busting were developed by the Portuguese Army during insurgency in Angola. They found that if the squad were trained to charge directly they were ambushed, then casualties, although high, were much lower than if the squad milled around and tried to take cover. They would undoubtedly be in an area, chosen by the enemy, where they could not take cover. Read the memoirs of Mad Mike Hoare in the Congo for many accounts of being ambushed along jungle roads. The AA-12 would have been very useful in that situation. The Portugeuse army used rifle grenades on Heckler & Koch G3 Wikipedia - as their opening shot. The opening fusilade of rifle grenades gave maximum blast and fragment in order to make the enemy keep his head down, even if he was not killed. This bought the defenders vital seconds to respond.
Many post-war rifle grenades were designed with a bullet trap in the rear of the grenade spigot. This enabled the standard ball round to be fired to launch the grenade because the bullet trap would catch the bullet. Without this feature, the infantryman would have to carry blank cartridges with him, which he might never use, and would take up space in his ammo bandolier which could otherwise have been used for regular ball ammunition. There are larger infantry-served heavy weapons but usually they involve back-blast which would make responding to an ambush difficult because of the danger of killing someone seated behind you in the convoy. The general objective is to 'give the enemy something to think about' and obscure his vision. M113 Wikipedia - APCs in Vietnam would have Claymores Wikipedia - attatched to the side so that in thick cover, the sides of the APC could be cleared of attacking VC. These convoys were accompanied by a twin 40mm Bofors Wikipedia - on a tank chassis, which would clear the jungle for a considerable distance around. Gradually the land became bald on either side of the road as the 40mm raked at successive attacks.

Atchisson AA12 shotgun
Atchisson AA-12 shotgun.

Remember that when using a assault shotgun in combat, the gun will get hot in the same way your assault rifle will do. Plastic bodied shotgun cartridges melt in contact with the hot chamber causing the mechanism to malfunction with an unclearable jam. You have to use all-brass 12 gauge shotgun cartridges. War is an expensive business.

The AA-12 has a straight-line stock which means that the recoil force is straight-backwards and the muzzle does not rise. Without this feature the full-auto function would be useless because the muzzle would rise steadily, throwing the rounds over the heads of the enemy.

Remember that as with all weapons which consume a lot of ammunition, the next question is "Who is carrying all the ammo ?". Preferably not me. It is really useful when there is sudden and dramatic enemy contact, but the previous week spent carrying it impresses lasting and unpleasant memories. Fire discipline and accurate aimed fire become a matter of religious observance when you find out what a sweaty business carrying ammunition can be: And having to find more when you have run dry. The Gatling Minigun used by Arnold Schwarzenegger in Predator (1987) and by Hale Ceaser in Expendables 3 (2014) are fight-winners when employed correctly. It is carrying them and their ammunition to the scene of the fight which is the difficult part.

Below are the pages from Thomas Swearengen's definitive reference work The World's Fighting Shotguns on the development of the Atchisson AA-12:

In terms of ambush-busting, perhaps the best weapon ever invented was the Brunswick Rifleman's Assault weapon:

It is interesting to note that wristwatch cases, in addition to being available in increasingly exotic materials are available in increasingly exotic finishes. These are the kind of materials and finishes which I wished for thirty years ago, but outside of the world of machine tools and jet engine manufacture, they were nearly unheard of. The RM032 is available with the diamond-like-coating (DLC) which is a coating of industrial diamond, which is black unlike natural diamond. DLC is a finish used to reduce wear on surfaces but ironically it does not give protection against corrosion if you coat a ferric part in it. This has been tried on pistol finishes, which require corrosion protection but receive quite a high rate of wear thanks mainly to the holster. The other coatings which have come into the wristwatch world over the last ten years are coatings which in engineering are used to reduce wear, such as coatings of various nitrides made via one of the two methods CVD and PVD. "Chemical Vapor Deposition" and "Physical Vapor Deposition". The original method PVD was created in order to add the sub-light-wavelength coatings to optical lenses. They have been used to coat high-wear parts in engineering ever since.
