PostSubject: attacking an enemy position   Sun Mar 29, 2009 5:46 pm

ok to start of with, i call this squad formation the "M" formation (wierd how that works huh?)

the two R players are rifleman.oooooooooooooooooooooooooo(R)ooooo(R)ooooooooooooooo
the two SG players are support gunners.oooooooooooo(SG)ooooooooooooooo(SG)oooooooooo
the S player is the sniper or DM.oooooooooooooooooooooooooooo(S)oooooooooooooooooooo
the o's are sapces in between since the forum doesnt allow spaces.......

the rifleman's jobs are to cover the front area, the support gunners are to cover the riflemans extreme angles and the sides of the formation, and last but not least, the sniper or DM is to cover the rear of the formation (the sniper is also positioned at the rear so as to not get taken out during an unnexpected meeting with the OpFor.

during this maneuver, the right-side rifleman and support gunner move to the middle position to give the left-side rifleman and support gunner covering fire to make their move. at this point the left-side rifleman and support gunner either fall back and take the right flank position or head right and take the right flank position (depends on the coverage in said area). this movement causes the main enemy fire to be directed at the front of the maneuver. when the maneuver is called the sniper falls back and takes the left-rear flank position and waits for the right flank to begin firing. when the right flank begins firing this not only directs the enemy fire away from the sniper position but also diveds the enemy fire in half (which helps the middle position and the right flank from collapsing). the snipers job is take out any OpFor falling back to another position. the sniper also will instill fear and/or panic in the OpFor giving the middle position and the right flank an advantage.

this maneuver seriously implies the saying: "the chain is only as strong as the weakest link".

the mauver fails if any of the positions are completely defeated.

i tried to put an image i made on paint but it would not upload:(

That makes sense. But you have to remember that the sniper (in my opinion) should not be in formation. If anything, he should be far ahead or behind (while staying concealed) the formation to provide stand-off cover fire. That is my primary tactic when moving in unfriendly areas. Well put though. I agree with your statements.

well, the sniper can be placed behind the formaton at any distance. i just added the position in the formation to complete the objective of this maneuver. i guess what i'm saying is: the sniper can complete his objective more easily and faster if he/she is closer to objective area.

i completely agree though. the sniper should not be that close to a designated formation, that is why i added the Dm portion. the DM does not neccesarily have to be a sniper. he can just be an accurate shot to take out "runners" lol

Well thats good but how many people are you working with because I would change it to where it would look like this one :


>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>(R)>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>(R)>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>(SG)>>>>>>>>>>>>>>(DM)>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>(SG)>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>(SG)>>>>>>>>>>>>>>(DM)>>>>>>>>>>>>>>(SG)>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
