If you've got a vehicle for cover, and two people intent on drawing your attention and flanking you, why not shoot underneath the vehicle? As demonstrated with the spall test, even if you hit low, all those fragments are eating up that guys shins. Sure, you can keep slicing the pie as he gets closer, or moves right, but if the other guy is continuing to move left you're going to be stacked up on that vehicle, and out of cover pretty quick.

Great discussion. Like you said, all of this is entirely situational dependent. I've had LE training where instructors didn't even discuss the benifits of being close to cover (I.e. smaller profile, less chance of accidentally hitting your cover, ability to stabilize your rifle during a prolonged standoff, etc.). It is completely dependent on the situation and it's good to know why we do what. 👍🏼
