I'd have to disagree with you there. I may live with someone who has a 
great interest in modern military stuff, but I have no interest what so 
ever and know few if any of the acronymns (didn't know any when I first 
picked up SG and started flicking through it) - though the guys here
been very accomodating when it comes to helping me out. It probably does

assume some knowledge, but you can figure it out for yourself very
I don't think you need to know what the acronyms mean to figure the
out... after all my grasp of artillery hasn't been degraded by the fact
still think of SPA as Special Psychological Assessment and RAMs are
only male sheep to me, my "machine gun guys" also seem to get by even 
though SAW isn't something I associate with anything but eyes ;)

But that's just my opinion.
