C This article has been rated as C-Class on the quality assessment scale.


The History section is practically non-existent now. The review of the troops has a 2,500-year history, the Scythians did it, the Huns did it, I believe Illiad had it, etc. The modern pageantry has very deep roots. Use of parades for intimidation, as a cover for mobilization, modern parades with fake weaponry, parading troops before assault on civilians and students, parades to assert a new world order, like after defeat of Napoleon, parades for census taking, parades in ethnic strife, use of parades for political killings, etc Barefact (talk) 18:49, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

Malay drill commands[edit]

Really, why? Why do we specifically have Malayan drill commands here, but not every other language? I think the article really needs a clean up. Wikipedia is not a drill manual, I think that it should go over only the very basics of what drill is like and about, then at the bottom we can link to all the different drill manuals.

The article also needs pictures to explain what the commands do.

More than that, it is duplicated at Drill commands.--Reedmalloy (talk) 14:30, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

Time Immemorial?[edit]

Military formations have been used since time immemorial? that is so vague as to be almost meaningless. Mention the history of military formations or don't. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:27, 16 March 2017 (UTC)
