I don't wish ill upon those guys, but I saw a teaser commercial on A&E today.
It looks like one of their guys was injured when they did that door pull they do so well.

I wonder if that is going to make them consider a different tactic.
Seriously, how logical is it to create all the flying debris in the midst of your team?

I think it would make slightly more sense to put a battering ram on the APC, putting the debris field on the bad guys' side. It makes more sense when you think about the effect the door would have flying into the house. It would be akin to tossing a stun grenade in the door before entering. The bg's are gonna be taking cover if a door comes flying in the room. If the door suddenly flies out of the room, it gives them enough warning to pick up their weapons.

Hopefully, this incident makes the people in charge think about a different entry tactic, because the current one sucks.

It all depends on the way the hinges go on the door, and the problem with your ram on the APC trick is when you do that the APC and ram is blocking the entry and giving the BG's time to setup for you. If you don't do it for a living don't judge. :) And if you'd check you'd find this is a closed topic on the forum. Thanks.
