To use FMtrainers must first develop a scenario.

The scenario should also include, among other things: Sometimes trainers may find it necessary to draw some elements from both organization guides in order to constitute the appropriate OPFOR order of battle. Rather, they provide the building blocks from which users can derive an infinite number of fj orders of battle, depending on their training requirements.

However, this task is 100-661 characteristic during the attack. In the defense, they help prepare the obstacle system and, once the attack begins, they wait concealed to create fresh obstacles on the most threatened axes.

Engineers also have more time to construct lines of communication and conceal forces and stockpiles. Engineer patrols and groups, observation posts, and photographic reconnaissance posts perform engineer reconnaissance.

Aside from the Ground Forces, the State’s armed forces may include any or all of the following components:.

The MSD mission includes Although the MOD can operate independently, it normally operates with AT reserves to provide flank protection and to repel enemy counterattacks. Minefields may also protect fully prepared defensive positions the OPFOR intends to maintain for some time.

The army’s final defensive line, which aims to prevent further enemy penetration and create conditions for counterstrikes, may use remote minelaying to reinforce threatened axes.

This OPFOR can also include less-capable forces, such as internal security forces, the militia, and reserves. If the trainer requires a large infantry-based force, the combined use of FMs and may better suit his purpose.

It constitutes a baseline for training or developing Fmm. Minefield breaching during the offense is generally the responsibility of the combined arms unit. The OPFOR employs remotely delivered minefields against chokepoints to delay and cause bunching that could create vulnerability to air 10-61 artillery attack.

A small infantry-based force typically has marginal integration capability ability to conduct tactical-level combat actions with limited fire support or basic integration capability ability to conduct battalion-level tactical combined arms actions. Mechanized infantry and tank divisions, corps, armies, and army groups have a finite number of organic delivery systems, some of which the division commander might call on to perform minelaying missions.

The basic methods for obtaining this information are observation and aerial or ground photography. Engineer personnel attached to combat reconnaissance patrols gain information on enemy engineer preparations. In mf, it usually has at least one mechanized infantry or tank platoon to provide security and chemical scouts to monitor the chemical and radiological situation. This series provides a flexible OPFOR package that users can tailor to represent a wide range of potential 10061 capabilities and organizations.

In such cases, trainers could fill in gaps by using those parts of the capabilities-based OPFOR that are most consistent with what they do know about a specific threat. It increases the capabilities by a factor of 1. However, users other than trainers also may apply the information in these manuals when they need an unclassified threat force that is not country-specific.

They prefer hit-and-run raids, ambushes, terror tactics, or harassment. Divisions organize tm over small rivers up to 60 m wide using divisional engineer resources.

Cases may exist in which constraints on the use of classified information preclude the use of actual threat data. Large armor- and mechanized-based forces 1006-1 conduct large-scale, combined arms operations.


The purpose of route reconnaissance is to select suitable routes along the axis of advance and to identify suitable halt areas fn provide concealment. The OPFOR reduces these planning figures by 25 to 30 percent at night, 20 to 25 percent in the spring and autumn, and 15 to 20 percent in winter. The methods for creating breaches and passages depend on the situation and on the type of barriers the enemy uses.

In this case, the State’s military structure still consists primarily of the Ground Forces. With limited assets, most such groups cannot, or will not, invest in the weapons and technology necessary to keep pace with the best militaries in their regions. By their very nature, they are unpredictable. The operational art describes how army groups, armies, and corps conduct operations. Position of movement support detachment in march columns.

The OPFOR may use not only mechanical minelayers, but also air and artillery means to emplace such minefields. At army group level, an engineer battalion may appear in place of or in addition to the engineer brigade, and a water crossing regiment may provide pontoon bridge and assault crossing assets.

Sign 1000-61 Sign Out. Significant technologies that mark this class are in fire support and target acquisition. An infantry-based force differs from an armor- and mechanized-based force primarily in terms of technological level and the ability to 100–61 arms into combined arms combat. The armor- and mechanized-based OPFOR module includes a range of potential forces that can vary in size and capability.
