Anyone know what the walls of those houses & rooftops are made of?

The rifle bullets don't ever seem to penetrate thru them so it must be pretty solid stuff.

Versus over here where a bullet could go completely thru many homes & come out the other side.

Micah,

5.56X45 is not a good penetrating round, in fact, it gives dismal results as far as barricade penetration....&.62X 51 is better, but it is relegated to medium machine gun role on vehicles or sniper use...The Marines may still deploy two per platoon, I am not sure, the Marine rifle platoon has changed a lot since I served......
50Cal brownings and 20mm is what they use for penetration in heavy barricades and .308
to some extent...

This is meant with the greatest of respect, "organized chaos" is what that is.

Can anyone tell me how much all that gear weighs that the soldiers are carrying?
