Perceived Threat

Perceived threat includes throng turbulence, urban guerrilla combatants and barricaded subjects where conditions may require hostage rescue, selective extraction, exploratory recon, surveillance and VIP Protection.

Operational Intelligence and Situational Awareness are important in the most effective preparation of force protection however superior tactics and weaponry are most essential in obtaining the highest probability of total control over the tactical environment and its constituents.

URBAN AND BUILT-UP AREA GROUND CONTROL

URBAN AND BUILT-UP AREA GROUND CONTROL

99% of all tactical deployment calls for teams to dynamically close distances to the target or targets in order to bring the environment and its constituents under total control. Multiple Interlocking procedures are used to move into entry position for penetration or creating optimal conditions.

The principles of Dynamic Force Confrontation are the culmination of the strategic insight, knowledge, experience and effectiveness of Command HQ and the tactical acuity of Field Commanders in battle.

1. The 5 Elements of Strategy
a. Initiative – opportunity through proactive
b. Depth – expedite with significant impetus and gain
c. Synchronization – the accuracy of linking events in concurrence
d. Agility – effective operability in a wide range of dynamic conditions
e. versatility – the diversity of useful elements

2. 5 Factors to Reconcile
a. Terrain means the geophysical condition of the tactical environment
b. Intelligence is the gathering of information and observation
c. Tactics means the approach of methodology in the objective
d. Weaponry is the weapons available
e. Mass infers the focus of forces

3. Tactical Operations Threat Assessment
a. Lethality (Technical) – the applicable deadly force
b. Reliability (Tactical) – the effective degree of dependability
c. Availability (Operational) – the scope of accessibility
d. Sustainability (Strategic) – the duration of operability

Behavioral Distinction

Tactical implies the implementation of evolved and intelligent behavior made second nature versus hyper-conditioning of reflex and intuitive behavior. The training and thinking processes are brought together under a fundamental tactical plan or approach, where the objectives of the solitary combatant and his equipment are applied according to the needs and initiatives of the strategic overview.

Unit differentiation

Where there are many strata of national and local level defense or security, from Department of Defense military systems and Federal Agencies to local Law Enforcement police units, a tactical team generally indicates the smallest operationally functional unit of trained individuals grouped into the following unit designation: 1. A Detachment (3 to 5 men) is known as a Fire Team (a 4 man unit). 2. A Squad comprises of 3 Fire Teams (12-15 people) & a Team Leader 3. A Platoon is made of 3 Squads and a Platoon Leader. There are 3 Fire Teams within a Squad of 12 to 15 operators which includes one Team Leader (Staff Sergeant Level) and 3-4 Squads per Platoon with a Platoon Leader (Lieutenant or Instructor in rank).

Simultaneous Combat within Maneuver Warfare

In warfare where taking control over physical areas must precede any policing efforts or crime fighting, it is found that physical control and Force Projection represents to citizens who reside in taken territory a form of repressive occupation which is ultimately counter-productive to any follow-on efforts to establish law and order. The only way to form a lasting cooperation with a local community is to have won their trust and intelligent recognition of common goals. Without the hearts and minds, and especially in less developed areas, what ultimately transpires is a decentralized insurgency fought by guerrilla fighters who are tactically adept and native to the region. No matter what energies are expended to using superior technological maneuvers to decapitate the support and command of the resisting forces it is now known that because each small group is its own Center of Gravity and the only way to defeat highly adaptive decentralized fighters is through specialized tactics implemented by special operations to each important locality. One methodology most effective to present day combat is clandestine, horizontal command-structured, specialists skilled in Combined Operations Simultaneous Close Combat, fluent in the language and indistinguishable from local culture of the target area. What this describes is Simultaneous Combat within Maneuver Warfare where each operator has the skill set and has the ability to decide his own action. He must be an exceptionally mature individual, integral to the detachment, and an expert team player. Simultaneous Combat protocols for stealth deploy and surgical elimination of targets without the support or command component. Simultaneous Combat is based on technical proficiency throughout the complete range of combat skills made contextually consistent through Simultaneous methodology. Training includes increasing the awareness level for clarity and sensitivity awareness, being able to scientifically understand instantaneous response, delivery of kinetic force within the simultaneous exchange.
