*We* use flashbacks, but those don’t require gas masks. Our enemies don’t carry that stuff. I’ve actually never met a soldier who carried CS gas on them. In fact, that vast majority of soldiers keep their gas masks at the bottom of their duffle bags for the entire deployments. The only “gas” attack I ever saw was a homemade chlorine grenade. You know what it did to the soldiers? They described it like swimming in a heavy chlorinated pool. Not super effective. CS is pretty shitty to use out in the open anyways, with wind and environmental factors and whatnot. It’s only useful indoors and the likelihood of soldiers being attacked indoors with gas is…. Fucking monumentally small. Even if we fought a major country.
Edit: Not to say these things never happen. Just my personal experience. Someone could refute everything I’ve said.
