What’s the point of hand to hand combat in the military?

You can’t beat guns, tanks and fighting jets with your bare hands.

    If you want to kill quietly you need to do it hand to hand.

    Probably because it teaches discipline and it's exercise.

    If you are close enough for hand to hand combat, guns are USELESS.

    If you run out of ammo in a close range situation, you are going to want to know how to fight with your hands.

    You could easily end up in a situation where you have run out of ammunition and the only way to continue to fight is using the bayonet on their rifle and hand to hand fighting.

    You may consider this farfetched but there are many incidents in history where the troops on both sides were down to hand to hand fighting.
