AAVs have a mk19 40mm launcher and a .50 cal on top they have more than enough firepower to cover themselves on anything short of a dday style landing. I am not a tracker but I have done AAV raids before. I have always ran out the back but, without knowing their doctrine, it would make sense to turn around because it would force the grunts inside to run out instead of hiding behind the cover they would have if they ran out when it was facing the ocean.
Sure, I've been called a xenophobe, but the truth is, I'm not. I honestly just feel that America is the best country and the other countries aren't as good. That used to be called patriotism.
