Not quite on the subject, but I always thought a crossbow would be a helluva weapon for guerilla warfare.

You could sneak around and take out enemy sentries (and others) and there would be no way they could pinpoint your location.

Unless someone else saw which way the guy you got was facing- then they know a general direction- and that you are CLOSE!

Crossbows were used some in Viet Nam as you suggested- but it more of a lack of silenced firearm or any other fire arm for everybody in squad situation. Some pictures maybe of a Huey that got stuck with a VERY large crossbow bolt 1969- A brother in 7th calvary/1st Airmobile said it happened a couple times, best LZ for attack got covered by whatever Charly could get.

Have you ever shot a crossbow??? If not maybe you should. They make a loud noise the moment you pull the trigger or at least the ones I have owned or handle all did so yes you could be pin pointed pretty easy plus they are hard as heck to cock unless your a big very fit man. I have problems cocking mine and that is with a rope asset
