This field manual fully revises the previous Army’s physical readiness training (known as PRT) doctrine. The Holistic Health and Fitness (H2F) System directed by this doctrine is designed to address the readiness of every Soldier. Performance readiness experts of the H2F System will assess each Soldier’s physical and mental status and design programs to sustain or improve that Soldier’s ability to meet the demands of their military occupational specialties (MOSs), duty assignments, and combat-specific tasks. This individualized approach is sustained across the Soldier’s Army career. It represents a cultural shift from the industrial scale approaches of the past where massed formations received the same training in a one-size-fits-all approach—often with no equipment or expertise required to lead the training. It also represents a shift from expecting individual Soldiers who often train remote from their units to independently develop and implement a performance training program. The H2F System addresses those individual Soldiers’ needs, too.
Army Techniques Publication (ATP) 3-21.8 encompasses techniques for the Infantry
platoons and squads of the Infantry, Stryker, and Armored brigade combat teams (I, S, and
ABCTs). ATP 3-21.8 provides doctrinal guidance; describes relationships within the platoon and squad; defines organizational roles and functions, capabilities, limitations; and lay outs the responsibilities for platoons and squads during unified land operations. The Infantry platoon and squad is an all-weather, all-terrain unit. Against this backdrop, the Infantry platoon and squad must be ready to adapt to various levels of conflict and peace in various environments. This requires bold, aggressive, resourceful, and adaptive leaders– leaders of character, competence and commitment - who are willing to accept known risks to accomplish the mission. Infantry leaders must use their initiative and make rapid decisions to take advantage of unexpected opportunities.
Our Army exists to protect our nation and to preserve the peace. To meet that core
requirement, the Army must man, train, equip, and organize to win in the Arctic. The Arctic
is simultaneously an arena of competition, a line of attack in conflict, a vital area holding
many of our nation’s natural resources, and a platform for global power projection. This strategy communicates our objectives and plan to build an Army capable of Multi-Domain Operations and regaining Arctic dominance.

The world is a complex environment. Soldiers must leverage cross-cultural and
regional expertise to operate among populations, promote regional defense, and be
interoperable with the allied and partner forces. The challenges and complexity of the
world require Soldiers to provide a broad range of capabilities. It is increasingly difficult
to anticipate the multiple emerging threats to United States security interests and
adjust the Army’s organization, materiel resources, and facilities to cope with them.
Because the Army cannot quickly optimize these components to meet the wide range
of threats, commanders optimize their most agile resource: their people.
Success in combat demands a technological and human edge over future threats.
Developing and maintaining a human edge requires a sustained investment in the
physical, cognitive, and social aspects of Soldiers and civilians. This investment
includes continuous innovation in training, education, leader development, and both
talent acquisition and talent management. Advanced situational awareness (known as
ASA) skill development optimizes human performance through building the skills
necessary to develop agile, resilient, adaptive, and innovative Soldiers who thrive in
conditions of uncertainty and chaos.

The United States Coast Guard (CG) Incident Management Handbook (IMH) is designed to assist CG personnel in the use of the National Incident Management System (NIMS) Incident Command System (ICS) during response operations. The ICS program has adopted the motto Ordo e Chao – Order out of Chaos. The IMH is intended to be used as a reference job aid for responders to provide a systematic response process bringing order out of the chaos of incident response. It is not a policy document but rather guidance for response personnel requiring judgment in application.
The Soviet tank company is equipped with either 10 or 13 tanks, according to its
subordination, and is organized into three platoons. Its personnel consists primarily of conscript soldiers generally well trained in the individual skills of driving, loading, and gunnery. Four tank commanders in each company are officers or warrant officers who complete extensive professional training. The remaining tank commanders are conscripts who have six months training before arriving in the company and train in their units during the next 18 months until their term of service expires.
The Limited Contingent of Soviet Forces in the Republic of Afghanistan garnered valuable combat experience and significantly expanded the theory and practice of combat in mountainous-desert terrain. Battalion and regimental-level combat was fought primarily in the mountains against separate detachments of mujihadeen insurgents. The war was fought under conditions where the enemy lacked any aviation capabilities, but had modern air defense systems and modern mines. A lack of front lines and advances along varied axes (which were not mutually supporting) characterized the decisive actions of the opposing sides as they attempted to seize the initiative and gain control over certain territories.
The Soviet forces encountered several unique combat characteristics which necessitated that they adopt more effective methods for combating guerrilla forces of mujihadeen.
Combat experience disclosed that the principal types of combat included: company, battalion and regimental raids; blocking off areas where the enemy was located prior to searching out and destroying guerrilla forces; and the simultaneous attack on several groups of the enemy located at various depths and locations. The specific combat conditions influenced the way in which the advance through mountains and inhabited areas was conducted; led to a change in air assault tactics; changed the methods of conducting marches and providing convoy security; and caused a change in the tactics of organizing and conducting ambushes.
This is an English translation of the Chinese analysis that was classified SECRET in Communist China in 2013. Below is an excerpt.
Under the conditions of informatization, with the help of computer and network technology, the means and methods of war pre-practice greatly expanded, simulations and base drills have risen from the tactical level of the battle to the strategic level. Faces, strategic ideas, strategic plans, and strategic theories will be generated and examined in the prewarning environment for war.

The United States Army has been involved in a mountain war for a decade. After all this time, mountain combat remains a stubbornly difficult mission and technology can offer only modest support to the infantry’s mission of closing with the enemy or the logistician’s mission of getting support forward. Training, equipment, weapons, tactics, and logistics all require significant adjustment for mountain combat. This book covers operations and tactics, artillery, and aviation support, reconnaissance, communications, training, and logistics. It demonstrates
that the key to enhancing effectiveness is using the terrain effectively, preparing the soldiers properly, and understanding the environment.
As the U.S. Army transitions from counterinsurgency operations to Large-Scale
Combat Operations (LSCO) in a multi-domain battlefield, operational medical
forces must optimize efforts at echelon for maximum effectiveness. LSCO demands
a flexible and agile force that must adapt in order to win in unified land operations.
The medical platoon must train and operate to support combat operations. Just as
the Army seeks dominance in volatile, complex, and ambiguous environments,
Army Medicine must redefine how the Army Health System evolves to support
ATP 3-20.15 provides principles, tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP) for the employment of tank platoons. It also provides the framework and tactical employment principles for tank platoons of the Armor and Mechanized Infantry Company Teams and Combined Arms Battalions. It also provides doctrinal guidance for commanders, staff, and leaders who are responsible for planning, preparing, executing, and assessing operations of tank platoons. This ATP/MCRP serves as an authoritative reference for personnel developing doctrine (fundamental principles and TTP), material and force structure, institutional and unit training, and tank platoon standard operating procedures.
Fire support is fires that directly support land, maritime, amphibious, and special operations forces to engage enemy forces, combat formations, and facilities in pursuit of tactical and operational objectives. It requires close coordination and integration with maneuver forces. Effective fire support requires an observer that understands the tasks to accomplish and how these tasks support the overall operation. The observer must be able to accurately locate targets, understand which targets to attack, and effectively communicate what is seen to the rest of the fire support community.

Persia, as Iran was known before nineteen thirty five, was one of the great empires of the ancient world. Its military history dates back more than 2,500 years. The country in its present form—the Islamic Republic of Iran—was established in nineteen seventy nine after the Islamic Revolution. Iran is a theocratic republic with a supreme leader appointed for life as head of state and the highest-ranking political, military, and religious authority.
The Defense Intelligence Agency—indeed the broader U.S. Intelligence Community—is continually asked, "What do we need to know about China?" What is China’s vision of the world and its role in it? What are Beijing’s strategic intentions and what are the implications for Washington? How are the PLA’s roles and missions changing as it becomes a more capable military force? This DIA Report tackles those questions.
