      U have to ses that the Swiss papal guard has two different types of wapeonnery 1. This Speer thing which there are masters at wielding it 2. They are trained with using nearly everything and it is known that the wapeonnery of the papal state can eradicate itself (if used properly) the Swiss guard can change thir wapeons in 5-10 min

      This was much more a critique of the Wakandian military and doctrine, rather than the tactical errors of the battle. The airforce and deployment were low hanging fruit, I'd would have much rather seen an analysis of their failed tactics, like the shield opening and the charge, but what they should have done instead. A good example is keep the shield shut and use skirmishers to contain the limited number of outriders that break through, using the airforce to rapidly redeploy to counter flanking units. Or simply charging down the hill and holding that stream, in formation. The water slows the enemy, and the tightly organized formation is a good counter to the cavalry-like and chaotic outriders. Open space between men is the opposite of what you want for large scale combat.

      But I'm a random, not a sub, so it doesn't matter that much.

    The society they set up with Wakanda is like 3rd century BCE Sparta, sophisticated tech (for the time) propping up a tribal civilization on it's last legs.

      First off America does NOT have the best military, you guys have had your asses handed to you more times than you have won, second of all your battle tactic is still wrong, they did the right thing in moving the battle away from civilians in the capital, thirdly Africa is the birthplace of gorilla warfare why not have them using there incredible cloaks and engage the enemy when they cant be seen?

          Oh what 6 miniguns would of done here. Those creatures would of died under a hailstorm of bullets coming faster than they could move new troops up. Heck, just 2 would of inflicted thousands of casualties all by themselves. Next, why no artillery? Seriously, just some basic anti infantry artillery would of decimated the attackers as well. Just 2 rapid fire artillery pieces with napalm and frag shells would of also inflicted thousands of casualties.

          Sorry, but the battle while cool looking, was so far from realistic that Wakanda should of lost that fight long before Thor was able to show up. It was that bad.

          I would know, I am ex military!

            While the Vatican Swiss Guard are well trained and will fuck you with their halberds if you try to start shit. Their are also well trained as a modern security force of experienced veterans and law enforcement, they will break out their Swiss made assault rifles and modern weaponry if the need arises to enforce law or to defend the Holy See.

              I don't see why they didn't have gear closer to the comics with advanced guns hiding underground some of the spears not only able to shoot but be thrown to explode and plus there spec ops teams with advanced rifles and shit like that

                I know it’s a movie and all, but how would it have gone if...
                - Tanks
                - AC-130’s
                - Attack helicopters
                - Troops armed with automatic weapons and explosives
                Were present.

                  So how do the wakandans master high technology with an average IQ of 59 ? I'd like to hear this explanation.

                    I also wonder why they didnt keep raising the shield to let a few in kill them then lower it again. Essentially stoping thier swarm and heavy charges. Also why didnt they move in close to the shield then lower it? It would esstianlly make thier number useless and war machine could fly around and kill bunched up enemies.

                          Having never seriously followed Marvel movies, I'm surprised that this part of the film isn't mentioned more often. It's really bizarre to me that this seemingly laughable plot point is part of such a popular film. Is it canon that Wakanda's intellectuals reject all foreign historiography and refuse to analyze current events? This sounds like the kind of shit the Wakandan nobility was up to before the events of Black Panther. I thought that movie was about the nation opening its eyes, and that Disney was glossing over the political impotence of the Wakandan working class to promote approval for the house of Saud or something. Does Wakanda just retain its flaws from Black Panther or something, or are we supposed to believe that this is a depiction of a healthy, strong civilization?

                            The Swiss guard, AKA the Papal guard are susually armed with Medieval weaponry when in ceremonies but they do have a cache of modern weapons in case of an actual attack agaisnt the Vatican. This includes everything from sniper rifles to anti-aircraft rockets.

                            Incidentally I wouldnt want to get whacked with a Halberd either LOL

                              Outdated I know but I just realised that they had no armour (hover tanks, FAV's or hit a runs)
                              With wakandan tech they would have been vital in defence of the capital. This would have

                                Be careful running down the Swiss Guard. They are a fully functional modern military and protection force, who can also fight with their archaic weapons if they get caught in a dangerous situation while in ceremonial garb. And they are seriously effective.

                                    I think the best example for the armor > damage capability of ranged weapons would be KuroMukuro. An anime about a timetraveling samurai fighting aliens from a different solar system. It's not as wacky as it sounds actually but that's the best way I can describe it.

                                            The reason why the US has such a mighty army is mostly because it spends more on army and weapon testing and manufacturing then 10 other countries combined.

One method could be staying on those floating speeder things with ranged troops pulling some Mongolian tricks and just going in circles for ages. Citizens are evacuated from the city or hide in those massive underground caverns. With the Wakandans+Avengers dragging things out as much as possible, it may have been a possibility for the militaries of other nations to come in and help and for individuals with super-powers who haven't become heroes yet to step up to save half of everyone they love. As for anyone trying to nuke the place, just pretend the monsters being deployed by Thanos eat radiation or something (or Wakanda probably has some sort of automatic "destroy the nuke before it lands" system). This kind of backup might have actually landed them a victory.

The solution is quite simple: tell Dr Strange's 14 bajillion realities to go fuck themselves because Thanos is getting hit with far more superheroes than he was in the movie. While the world's militaries fight the monster horde we've got a large number of the superheroes, brought in by Strange, cutting Thanos's arm off rather than that wimpy ass taking the glove crap. Once the hand/arm is cut off (or the glove is taken but cutting will probably be easier) they don the glove onto one of their own to snap Thanos and his forces out of existence. We see that wearing the gauntlet can't really be done by any mere mortal so let's give it to Thor here.
                                                                                Thor brings his Asgardians to Earth and they either establish their own nation (idk I hear they like fighting monsters so give them some uninhabited land in Australia) or get accepted as citizens into certain nations (many of them eager for the super-soldier potential that is Asgardians) while everyone kinda has to do what Thor says, including the Universe itself. Thor will probably then just go around the universe fixing problems with the flicks of his fingers and trying out alcohol from every place in the universe, possibly making planets full of monsters just so he and other thrill-seekers can have fun on them.
