Default Cave Caches; how do you deal with them?

We all know about them, we have defended them and attacked them. They are a godsend for some and a seemingly insurmountable objective for others.

So what tactics do you use to defend and attack them?

To atack them i would use Air support. But for most maps with cave system caches there is no CAS available.

With the new patch you can mortar them to shit, but what it all comes down to is face to face combat.

Having a good squad is important, like with everything else you do in pr. Using real life tactics works pretty well in caves, like throwing grenades ahead of you and having a red dot or iron sighted infrantyman on point.

there ARE some impossible cave cache locations

Best thing to do is focus ALL your efforts on the OTHER cache location

Cave Rave is a good example of an impossible assault location. (i majorly fail at embeds, so i wont even try.

I randomly destroyed one by throwing 4 grenades trying to get them to stop shooting at my squad. My squad was just like "Lithium! Come on we gotta work our way around" and i'm like "Noooo there is no way arou... Hey.... Explosion...... ...... .... Sweet i killed a cache! "

"well that was random"

I love the smell of JDAMs in the morning.

Had this same issue last night on west fallugia. but instead of a cave it was the basement under the destroyed hotel in the south of the map.

I lead my whole squad in the east entrace a number of times... only to meet nades and to be blocked by a grenade trap to enter the main room.

I was inclined to have one man rush the trap and blow it so we could all rush the room then rev him. (a whole sqd going prone under the trap wasn't an option.) but i didn't use this tactic. and i was fast running out of plans...

I'm keen to hear what you guys do in caves / dead ends

Today on Lashkar we fought over an unrevealed cache in the caves on the North East. More than three squads were focusing on it and I doubt more than two squads were defending. It was a battle of attrition. Find AP mines/IEDs? Tell on man to run in and hope they det it, we'd follow after and so on and so forth until most of us died and only one of them was left.

After the third wave of three squads we hit them and killed it (after failing misirably at killing it via C4 from the top).

It was no victory however, over 100 deaths occurred and we were down to 100 tickets. Mind you we started the round with 650!

Some realistic solution would have been welcomed but as none exists I think you must anticipate not going after that cache. Or pre-empting all caves with a squad of three patroling it when ever a cache is destroyed.
