RAMADI (Iraq): Mother of All MOUT Maps

Recommended Posts

Just came across this - a podcast with Cpt (now Lt Col.) Christopher Bronzi on the events of April 6 & 7 2004.  It covers specific events then as well a bit more wide ranging topics for the stuff soldiers and small unit leaders face in combat.

Great find mate, though not much time to listen right now....

Look at how many residential  blocks the JOKER 3 patrol routes covered! The concept was to be able to cut off and trap potshooters; they were not expecting an ambush by dozens of fighters, reinforced by local residents.

you know you have spent too much time in LLFs Ramadi map and looking at satellite views of the city when you can recognize in Videos from 2004 where exactly a unit is....  at 2:15 is when they hit Rte Michigan about a 1/2 km from the map edge of LLFs map (near Gov't ctr).  The other thing that is freaky is to watch civilian behavior when there is gunfire and rpg rounds going off. People don't quite run for cover like i'd expect.  Crazy.
