2. Top Level Planning:

  • Assigning Squads to Objectives
  • Assigning certain roles (and equipment) to Squads (AA/MAT/HAT/Demining/Demolitions, etc)
  • How do we get there?
  • FUPs, OoM and Speed limits

3. Planning Objectives:

  • Teamwork (Positioning to assist each other, bounding movement)
  • Picking approach routes
  • Overwatch and when to do it
  • Placement of squads & assets and their attack vectors and sectors
  • Preplanning or mapping the AO.

4. Bad situations and how to handle them

5. Managing Comms: LR, SR and Local
