THE SECTION ATTACK - RGS Schoolweb

THE SECTION ATTACK Aim To show you how a section will work in a quick attack To demonstrate to you the drills and procedures used by the section when in

battle To give you the theoretical background for when you practice in the field BATTLE DRILLS Standard methods of executing specific tactical operations at company level and

below. Their object is to enable low level tactical operations to be executed with the minimum of orders, following simple and well understood formats and thereby saving time. WHAT DID ALL THAT MEAN?

The less decisions you have to make, and less you have to think about it, the more efficiently you will act Ultimately, battle drills lessen the need for orders from commanders SECTION BATTLE DRILLS
