Take a cue from the French Army at Dien Bien Phu if you find yourself in need of Zombie defense tactics. Unleash the amazing power of the Quad .50.
Under siege by Zombie hordes? Zombies in the wire? Need some Zombie defense tactics? These are just some of the many modern headaches facing the world every day. If you find yourself in this predicament, perhaps it would be instructive to review a French Army solution from the 1950’s. It wasn’t for a Zombie siege, but it was darn close.
The French Army found themselves under siege in 1954 by the Viet Minh at a lush little garden spot in Indochina especially fit for cafe society. It was called Dien Bien Phu. Faced with complete encirclement, repeated attacks and perimeter incursions, the French needed help quickly. Things were so bad that at times the Viet Minh got through the perimeter defenses, sprinted at top speed, and jumped over the French Army trenches. Sacre Bleu.
Enter the Quad .50. This little dandy was a nice piece of hardware consisting of four .50 caliber machine guns mounted in a square configuration. It was employed by firing either the top or bottom two guns at the same time. This created a tremendous and wicked field of fire cutting down anything in its path. If one or both of the guns being used jammed, then the gunner simply went to the other set. Rock and roll, you’re in the thrill zone. The French Army found this weapon to be quite effective against the Viet Minh.
So in the unavoidable event of a Zombie siege, and forthcoming unrelenting attack, remember the French Army and Dien Bien Phu. Yes, the French went down to defeat, but they didn’t go down without a fight. They whipped out some Zombie defense tactics with the amazing firepower of the Quad .50 concept. Yeah, they got beat up, but you should’ve seen the other guy.
