A clear sight for rifles; Combat operations in Iraq and Afghanistan have been characterised by infantry troops performing close quarter battle, shooting at ranges typically between ten and 50 metres--with shots at over 100 metres a rarity, according to recent United States Marine Corps after-action reports. At the same time, these troops still need to be able to engage targets in excess of these ranges. Withington, Thomas 2407

Breaching walls: a must in mout operations: why breach walls during a military operation? At least two answers immediately come to mind; (1) to neutralise enemy troops that are hiding in the building and (2) to open an access for one's own troops, avoiding too-obvious accesses that would quite certainly be booby-trapped. Those two aspects require two different approaches, however. Alpo, Paul V. 2498

Digital maps map more than just maps: any military operation is all but impossible without maps. Generals use them to plot their scheme of manoeuvre, admirals to map minefields or sonar coverage, and pilots to navigate to and from their targets. All three depend on maps to show them weather conditions, the local terrain or ocean and crucially the position of blue and red forces. Withington, Thomas 2623

What's around me? At the most basic level, situational awareness should provide a soldier with the answers to three questions: 'Where am I?' 'Where are my buddies?' And 'Where is the enemy?'. Kemp, Ian 3040
