They are trained at this point, they dont freeze up and take immediate action when taking care of walkers. Im talking in a time period between the initial outbreak and little after it, to the point that nuking cities to kill off ALOT of walkers surrounding the VIP's location is an option. Not three months after the outbreak. and does anyone know if vaccum bombs can only be deployed by aircraft? also, how do you know that the VIP's are gonna care about the other survivors? what if they dont want other survivors to come to their location? Most likely, the people who make the executive decision are not gonna want to spend more limited supplies to more people in order to re-ensure the survival of the VIP's ( this is only worst case scenario, i hope people arent like this!)
Actually,this bunch is pretty stupid. It's like watching someone die on easy in Left 4 Dead. But see,the tank was still in one piece. So the question then is,what happened to the tank crew? Since the sheriff just sat in the tank til the zombies wandered off,it's obvious they couldn't break into the tank. One could say the tank ran out of gas,but that's not gonna happen cause the tank crew would know to get out of the zombie infested city and to some kind of refueling station well before they ran out of gas. That is,of course,if there's any zombies left after you blasted them to bits with the tank's main gun.
No,the only way to get at that tank crew is the same way they infected everyone else. I'm guessing some kind of gas bomb that spreads a super concentrated version of the virus that infects like an airborne virus for a little while. I can't imagine any other reason they'd abandon a tank. And you'll also note that that base was over run. Indicating there were lots and lots and lots of zombies. Do you really think even a dozen zombies would get past even 5 national guard?
In the end,the only way it's gonna work is if there's lots of zombies at the start all over,spreading the military and police thin and probably targetted at those forces. Otherwise,the army'd just surround the infected zone and kill all the zombies. Then,IF the army failed,and it'd be a big if,they'd probably nuke a single city to wipe out most of the infected,if they used nukes at all. So yeah,it'd have to be a coordinated attack.
