Tactical Training

Tactical Training


a subdivision of troop and naval training. It constitutes the foundation of the field training of commanders, staffs, and troops. Tactical training is combined with fire, technical, and drill training, with the use of combat vehicles, and with other military skills.

The main objectives of tactical training are to study combat theory, including regulations; to instill personnel with a high degree of psychological stability and with the ability to perform combat missions successfully in any situation; and to provide personnel with skills needed to apply the methods and procedures of waging battle and using weapons and combat equipment and to exploit the tactical features of the terrain. Other main objectives of tactical training are to study the forces, organization, weaponry, and tactical resources of the enemy in different types of battle; to train commanders and staff in methods of organizing and waging battle and controlling subordinate forces in battle; to develop in commanders and staff the ability to organize comprehensive troop support when waging combat; and to improve the combat teamwork of small and large units.

The chief forms of tactical training are limited tactical exercises, tactical training periods, and tactical exercises, including those involving field fire. Officers and noncommissioned officers also participate in lectures, seminars, group exercises, and the like.
