I was in the military reality is most soldiers would be in the barracks getting drunk n playing with thier ding dongs.If you did run into a base like that it would take them awhile to react as the weapons are locked in a Armory and the ammo is halfway across the vase at the base at the ammo supply point.Realisticly the only thing you would have to worry about are the gate guards and the military police!! Believe it or not also but most military bases don't have anti aircraft defense systems either,if they do I never saw em.
You were obviously some sh*t head clerk. Every military base has their units on a rotation. Each unit will have a time period of a month to three months where they are on QRF for the Military Base. That means the Armorer is always on call...And at least a Platoon has their gear ready to go. Weapons draws dont take that long and ammo for this QRF is always easily available to them. On real bases. Like you said. Theyve got MPs constantly patrolling the base with Civilian Police Officers to fill in the gaps. Theyve got someone at the front gate constantly armed and at times theyll have actual units send soldiers down to the gates to reinforce them..Either for training or for whatever perceived threat there may be. As for aerial threats, again theyre tracking everything flying within a reasonable distance to the base. Every base Ive been assigned to had air force F-16 squadrons making rotations at its airfield. And of course a f*cking desk jockey wouldnt have ever seen the anti air point defense systems. Its not like theyd have them parked next to peoples houses. But if you think that a military base would not have a ground to air defense system in place...It must of been you drunk in the barracks..
