When a bandit’s house is blocked he clearly understands that he has no ways to escape. Breakthrough actions are done often but in 99,9% of cases they are ineffective.

Once he finds himself in the basement he loses maneuver space but acquirs a tactical advantage. Those who follow and search for him do not know the territory he hides on. He does not wish to come out from the basement while his enemies cannot siege for days. In such a situation his enemies have to assault.

All possible scenarios are trained many times and the assaulting group is given the most disadvantageous conditions. The instructor likes them do “die” while training. The more of them “die” during exercises the less of them die in a real situation. More sweat – less blood.

  1. Of course, in the real world, the bandit can cause havoc by simply shooting up through the floor. Guaranteed to back the police off quickly.
