Immediate Action Drill 2

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 2

Patrol sees enemy approaching. Contact appears unavoidable.

IAD: Freeze, followed by hasty ambush on detection.

Subsequent action: If no contact, patrol continues after enemy passes. If ambush executed, patrol assaults by fire only, withdraws quickly, and continues on. Once contact is broken, change direction of egress to evade any pursuit.
