Limiting Point

Limiting Point

 

(Russian styk), a military term for the point where the flanks of adjacent subunits, units, or large units meet. When a military operation is planned, the senior commander establishes reference points for the boundary line between units, which determines where their zones of responsibility should meet at the limiting point. Commanders and staffs give special attention to securing these points in order to preclude unpatrolled gaps and to prevent the enemy from penetrating a flank or the rear of advancing or defending units. One of the commanders of adjacent units or large units is assigned responsibility for securing these points.
