Bite through the fore arm, calf, neck, face, and yes a human could bite hard enough to break the skin even with those gloves on. Plus if they have to turn and retreat that armor is going to slow them down, while zombies could run at a full sprint. If a soldier is down zombies will continue to pile on so he will be infected unless he either gets away or is rescued immediately.
Like I said, go find some fatigues and bite as hard as you can. Tell me how that works out. This isn't a movie where clothes rip dramatically at the slightest force. And these clothes are even more durable than the norm, considering their usage....
Those gloves are often made to resist heat, flash
(small explosions), abrasion, and puncture.
If they shot a zombie up close and blood got in there mouth, eyes, or open wound they become infected.
Depends on the zombie type. If it's a truly dead zombie, the blood will be coagulated. Besides, blood doesn't spray as much as you might think from a gunshot, even with a living human. Knives and such cause blood spray, bullet holes... not as much.
Besides, there are more flaws in your logic. For one, they may very well be wearing a gas mask, balaclava, shemagh, sunglasses, or goggles. The first is the most likely, considering the higher-ups may put all troops in MOPP 4
in a contagion situation.
And, of course, if the soldier is firing a bullet into a zombie at point-blank, something's wrong. They'll be firing from hundreds of yards away.
Plus the military would set up an HQ and try to defend it. What happens when the become overun? They can just evacuate on the drop of a hat. To pull out would take time which they wouldnt have much of. Plus if just one zombie survives they whole scenario can start over again. Without heavy artillery I find it hard for soldiers to win.
Not necessarily. And I'm not convinced it WOULD be overrun, depending on the site.
Also while grenades might criple, it is not garunteed a zombie kill. Im sure some would kill a few but the shrapnel blows in every direction, which leaves a high possibility of missing entirely. I just believe there are too many variables for the soldiers to win.
Depends on the type of zombie (I need a quick acronym for that). And a zombie with its legs blown off is preferable to a fully functional one. And the fragments blowing "in every direction" gives a higher hit probability against multiple targets. Have you seen what a grenade can do to a human form it lands next to? The thing has a casualty radius of 15 meters and a kill radius of five. That means that it's almost a sure thing that anyone within five meters (that's a longer distance than you think) will die. There's a reason for that.
