It would be hard to average, but probably three of four men per house. That's on a normal day and not during an operation like cleaning our Ramadi, Najaf, or Fallujah. It was usually a squad (or less) that would assault the house. Insurgents usually had weapons equivalent to what we carried. Assault rifles, grenades, RPGs, and even medium and heavy machine guns.

The better training of the US forces tips the advanteg to there side. Not shocked that the houses fell. Zombies have no training in it and bandits could or could not be trained. I would assume every bandit is ex SF better save than sorry.

Tipping to their advantage? Try going on a raid once, then tell me about advantages. You've also not seen the bandit gangs that were (and probably still are) running around Iraq. The advantage a zombie would have is it knows no fear and doesn't get tired. That being said, a wall would be nice to have, especially a reinforced wall. The weak point though, is always the gate.

Just saying a Solders from a western man nation are man for man better than a Iraq bandit. Never said they where bullet proof though.

i hope zombies are like the herd from TWD and move on and not the hunker down and siege types

Yeah the gate are all ways the biggest problem. The base has concrete sliding gates though, they pretty solid. The average home owner is not so well off. But then again the gate is all ways the weakest point

Urban fighting is the dirtiest, nastiest, most brutal kind of warfare.

Depending on the part, Portland Oregon could allow for some defensible positions. Other parts would be death traps. Mrknot could tell you the same. You'd be better off on the Northwest or Southeast edges going towards Milwaukie or St Helens. Things are a bit less busy around there.

The problem is, people tend to migrate towards perceived safety. A place me seem, and actually be safe, when things are normal. But let it hit the fan and watch those safe places turn into hell holes filled with screaming, scared sheeple. I'm reminded of an old episode of The Twilight Zone. One man prepares his family by building a underground bunker and stocking it with the supplies his family would need in an emergency. The neighbors scoff at the idea, making jokes about it, until one day when the airwaves are filled with warnings that a nuclear attack is imminent. The all converge on his bunker, demanding to be let, fighting amongst themselves over who will actually get into the bunker. They finally break the door down and then discover that the end of the world isn't nigh. it was a false alarm. The lesson is, make your preparations in secret, especially in areas where people refuse to prepare themselves and think the government will take care of them. Because those who think they know where a safe place is will stream to it in a huge mob, destroying any safety that might have been had.

I'm from the UK and the cities and suburbs are usually kinda merged together so no big wide open spaces. In two cities close together they to put a green belt of land you couldn't build on to stop the two cities merging into one. As for gates and fences etc we tend to us wooden fences and gates that I doubt would prove much of a challenge to a couple of zombies.
