P.S. The fact you brits may be able to detect the fighters is irrelevant since we would never fight you..... and if we did we wouldn't need stealth fighters to kick the living shit out of your airforce. (Kidding)

But anyway, siege is still useful.

Lol, even if I am from Finland, I just have to say that the Brits are far better than the Americans! At least if I can believe what I have heard, the brits have far better training, and more specialised troops... And they are also cooler in every other aspect...

Depends upon the branches. US marines VS Royal marines? About even, although the brits have some fucking great snipers. General army troops? Brits have harder training but we have numbers and tech. Cav? US have better tactics and more experience but the brits have a better tank. Special operations? No real way to gauge it. Air force? We would kick their ass.

sorry but i have to disagree that the U.S has more experience then the british army, the british army is alot older it has been around for 100s of years , in various forms, and also sorry to but i disagree with you on the count of U.S marines been equal to Royal Marines, Royal Marines are far better, altho i agree on numbers and tech and that we have the better tank.

anyway siege warfare will always be around in some form or other, no matter how advanced we get.

Of course you do, your a Brit. And our cav does have more experience. Our marines and your marines are about the same. You may have more training, not including recon, but we have more numbers and better tech. If I were to put your marines against ours I would bet on my boys, and not just because we would outnumber you 10-1, but because we have tanks, choppers, artil, ect. Although the Israelis would kick both our asses.

Anyway, this would be a fun off topic question.

Well I really should say force recon is the same. Marines, standard marines, arn't.

Its not that we're better at any one particular thing the best thing about the US military is the cooperation between the branches the hi-precision radar designation by the Army paints a mighty fine target for our Air force or Navy to bombard into dust and what not.

Didnt America beat the British (who at the time was the worlds best) army for Independence? Didnt America come into WW2 and fought back both the Nazis and Japs? Royal Marines or the Marines. Any Jarhead will say them ofcourse, some of those guys try to keep body parts for good memeories. Crazy ^#%s.

Anywho Airforce and Naval power we beat Britian, or any Europe country. The F-22 or the Euro Jet. Dead Even, but we have more F-22s. We also have more Carriers that carry these craft, or the just as Awsome F-18 Super Hornets. So the Marines will have very few Royal Marines to deal with as a result of Naval/Air Power.

Time to build those trences boys.... oh my gosh, this is why we have SIEGES

No the F/A-18 are now where near as awesome as the F-22's. not even closeish. the reason that the F/A-18's are so popular is that they unlike the 22's are carrier ready. however we are currently getting ready to fix that problem with the F-35.
And the reason that he F-22 beats the brittish jet... i think they're flyin SU-37's is because it has only a little bit less distance an almost equal payload and at least equal manuverability at 1/3 the cost and 1/2 the metal and rescourses required to build it

No Britain doesn't use SU-37's, we use the Eurofighter Typhoon.

I would just like to point out it wasn't the US or UK who dealt the serious blow to Germany in WWII (well we gave them a bloody nose in the Battle of Britain, with the help of the Poles of course), it was the Soviet Union who really crushed Hitler's forces.

Well that is debatable. It could be said that without the US the UK would have been crushed and the Germans would have been able to throw everything at the USSR... Although they probably would have lost anyway.

Anyway, all 3 nations were = important to the war effort.

And the typhoon isn't even as good as the f-15.
