  • [TGU] Battle Drill - Contact Reports, Map Reading, Sitrep & Advanced Formations

    TacticalGamer University
    presents


    BATTLE DRILL


    A battle drill is where we have a TGU instructor review a procedure or tactic and then we practice that a number of times. The purpose is to get hands on learning which is essential to follow up on TGU courses.

    The subjects your instructor is bringing to the group tonight will be:
    • Contact Reports - The three D's. Direction (methiods), Distance (methiods) and Description. Calling contact to your fire team is very different than to other teams.
    • Map Reading - What is a 6 or 8 digit grid. Who and when do we use it? Reading the contour lines.
    • Sitrep - What is a situational report? How is it used? Who starts one? Practice.
    • Formation Transitioning - simple practice in staying in formation and changing from line to column. Changing direction and what that means to other teams.


    Obviously this is way too much information to cover in one drill. However, we will see who is there and what our priority should be. See you at 6pm New York time.

                Prepare ye the delay . . . . . only short we hope but just so no one thinks the "world is crashing in". Looks like the TS server will be moved / updated at 1800 EST tonight (same time as our Drills launch) . . . see post here

                  I am aware of this event and I'm prepping a bit earlier than 1800 so I can get you guys right back in business.

                      Following up on what we did review last night I've made THIS SITREP DIAGRAM for TacticalGamer University's Reference Library.

                      We went over how the map grid system works using 4, 6 & 8 digit grids. How to use the compass to subdivide grids to 8 digit grid (Thanks to Rudolf and Ramna for your tips). Learned how to read contour lines and calling hills by their peak elevation.

                      Then we moved on to SitRep or Situation Reports. The format I called to you guys was a little loose compared to the above diagram but it still works.

                      Glad to have you guys along. We may be doing this more during events where the team has a moment to wait. Nothing long, just short moments where we pass on some of the TGU SOP's.

                      Thanks for that fellas.

                        Will definitely have to print that out! I always enjoy battle drill so will aim to make it where the times are compatible

                              Sorry I missed the drill. Do you know when the next drill is?
