Small Unit Tactics (SUT)


This is a non-live fire course.

This course will provide students with the confidence and skills needed to effectively shoot, move, and communicate as part of a team in any environment. Whether working in two-man teams or larger, one must be able to instinctively apply SUT in order to be successful against the opposition.
The course begins with Individual Movement Techniques (IMT), which are the basis for SUT, and systematically builds to force-on-force scenarios where teams will have to employ immediate action drills to be successful.
