John Kettler Posted September 25, 2012 Share Posted September 25, 2012 I couldn't find the right thread, but some time ago we had a raging debate on the effects of shock and surprise, as it applied to the introduction of a new weapon particularly. I still haven't found the Russian sources, though am leaning toward Savkin's PRINCIPLES OF OPERATIONAL ART & TACTICS. What I have found, though, is the same sort of information in the linked RUSI piece, together with explicit references from British OR studies on Shock & Surprise. The small guns are discussed because the article is about the combat leverage such weapons could supply in places like Afghanistan.
