Patrol

 

a reconnaissance or security element sent out by subunits and units in a combat situation.

The composition of the patrol during action in vehicles is from one tank (armored personnel carrier, combat vehicle) to a platoon; in dismounted formation it may be two or three soldiers (members of a patrol), a (patrol) squad, or a motorized rifle platoon. In addition, engineer and chemical reconnaissance patrols are sent out in the special troops. The missions of the patrol include obtaining intelligence concerning the enemy, terrain, and radiation and chemical situation and warning troops of surprise enemy attacks. The patrol carries out its missions by surveillance and combat. The distance between the patrol and the main forces depends on its composition, the assigned mission, and the combat situation. In the navy the patrol consists of individual ships or aircraft dispatched from large ship units to check whether an enemy is present.
