You may choose a non-fictional team of your own from the course of history and choose your non-fictional weaponry. You must a have valid data and performance stats of the weapons and warriors and must source them. The tactical teams will consist of four men that will have no aid from the outside world. Each individual is allowed the following weaponry: Primary, Secondary, a choice of one grenade and one melee weapon, armor can be stated but must have stats to back it. You must source the statistics of the average physical and mental condition of the individual from that area. First round is for acceptance and stating of warriors, weaponry, ect.

Each soldier is not confined to having the same weapon as the rest. Each one can be unique, or the same as the others.

1. No semantic
2. Please be realistic about the abilities of the warrior in the area. Don't go saying they are all Usain Bolts.
3. Weapons and armor must have been used or is being used by the warriors you choose.

Steel fragments (not to be confused with shrapnel) are provided by the grenade body and produce an injury radius of 15 meters (~45 ft), with a fatality radius of 5 meters (~15 ft), though some fragments can disperse as far out as 250 meters.

I only have 1 question before accepting. Do the weapons have to be tools already used by the team in reality or can it be any weapons?
Posted by TheDevilsAdvocate 5 years ago
Spetsznaz? SAS? I might accept this debate.

I do but you may not pick him in this debate because just because I believe something does not make it true.

So you dont believe that Jesus was the son of God?
Posted by Biastes 5 years ago
Jesus as in sun of god is a fictional character and can be argued in other debates but will not in this one. If you wish you can pick Jesus of Nazerus but he will only be a normal man of his time. Remember that he have to stat his physical condition and cite it.

The M1 Abrams is classified as a "Main Battle Tank" and is not a primary weapon.
Posted by Marauder 5 years ago
would an Abram Tank be allowed as a primary weapon? I feel like if I argued for General Petraus riding an Abram Tank that would be cheating but I dont see a rule making that out of bounds to argue
Posted by lannan13 5 years ago
Mine would be the USMC I win by default.
Posted by tkubok 5 years ago
Nm, my team has been chosen.

Jesus Christ.
Genghis Khan.
That guy who played Mcguyver.
Joseph Stalin.

Is Jesus Christ non-fictional?
