I know it looks ugly and I am sure that there is a way to pile up some sandbags to the front of the bunker. In addition, no Marine will agree to man such conspicuous, non-camouflaged fighting position. But this is just an experiment: a Marine fire team defends against a Russian squad which is attacking frontally.
The Marine fire team is split in two buddy teams, each team in a bunker reinforced with the H-barrier frontal cover. The men in each bunker fire obliquely from the sides and the two bunkers are mutually supportive (i.e. can fire through the front of each other). No frontal fire allowed from the bunkers!
|Instant translation: "we are about to get the shits". This is me and my field of fire through the left of the bunker. The other bunker is on my left.|
|Now the Russians are launching rockets at us. Just super! Now I can hear them down the slope. They are close.|
|After what appeared to be an eternity, the SAW can acquire some targets in front of my bunker and starts shooting (note the smoke coming from the other bunker).|
|Close combat: a Russian infantry man (inside the yellow circle) is rushing forward. I have to switch my gun to "burst" instead of "semi". The range of fire is point blank. The Russian gets it from me. Quick mag change.|
|Another Russian appears and I'm starting to hate these sandbags (note how I'm hitting them).|
|I hear voices in front of our bunker, but the SAW at our left doesn't engage them. I'm forced to cover our dead space with grenades.|
|The enemy assault falters and the remnants pull back under fire. It's easy to dispatch them when their backs are pointing at us.|
|These are some of the enemy casualties. They fell some 15 feet from our bunker.|
|This Russian infantry man was on his way to exploit a successful outflanking maneuver. I don't remember shooting or seeing any of the other Marines shooting this guy.|
