Immediate Action Drill 1

The Immediate Action Drill series of articles are written by local milsim player Dave. Many thanks for his time and the use of his work.

IAD Situation 1:

Mission requires patrol to avoid contact, if possible, and to quickly break any contact made.

IAD: Freeze, open fire only if detected.

Subsequent Action: If no contact made, allow enemy to pass. If detected, assault and break contact or immediately break contact after initial bursts. Once contact is broken, change direction of egress to evade any pursuit.
