The reality is the ruling elite fear the citizenry still and because the citizenry is armed, they cannot just massacre ideological dissidents at will. Instead, they have to get crafty and do it through things like an experimental vaccine and call it something scary like COVID. Those with real power and in the national government do not represent us. They hate us and seek to return humanity to serfdom under their rule and undo centuries of progress made by the average citizen to have a better life. This is all by design, it is not an accident.

Keep your powder dry, because it is the only thing that keeps them partially in check.

God bless you and God bless Dixie.

Thermal Camouflage: The Jäger Rig

Von Steuben Training & Consulting

Last week I posted an article about thermal camouflage. In that article I mentioned the use of mylar GI Casualty blankets to hide a static position. However, this is more than simply draping the blanket on top of you, there is an technique that must be applied. Today I will show you my method of rigging a mylar blanket so that it meets my requirements in the field, as listed below:

  • It must conceal my thermal signature from air and ground sensors, regardless of how long I’ve been underneath it.
  • It must be visually camouflaged from air and ground observation.
  • It must not cause me to overheat when spending several hours under it.
  • It must be easy to set up and tear down quickly (under 5 minutes).
  • It must also serve as a shelter from wind, rain, and cold if necessary.

The following technique is the result of my…

The Minuteman’s Guide to Thermal Camouflage

Von Steuben Training & Consulting

Warfare, be it foreign or domestic, is changing. The modern battlefield is saturated with sensors of all types from drones to night vision to electronic warfare. As this technology becomes more and more available/affordable to civilians, even irregular warfare is evolving. In order to survive the ever-changing nature of war, we must adapt along with it.

Particularly impactful is the common availability of thermal optics. Thermal optics, which read heat signatures, are incredibly potent tools. Although somewhat cost-prohibitive, they are no longer as unobtainable as they once were and can be had for under $2000 in some cases. It is safe to assume that any large-scale civil conflict will see at least some use of thermal optics on both sides, so we must be prepared for this reality.

In order to learn how to deal with a thermal-equipped enemy, we must first understand the technology we are dealing with.

Hidden In Plain Sight: Camouflage & Movement From A USMC Scout Sniper

 

An important concept is to stop, look, listen, smell, and plan (SLLSP). When moving across long distances, the environment can cause you fatigue, taking away your stealthies. Conduct an SLLSP. Stop all movement. Look around the area. Listen to your surroundings. Smell the environment. Plan your route. The focus of SLLSP is to keep you in tune with your surroundings and to get your bearings while moving with camouflage. You must be slow and deliberate.
