Northern Red.
Every Combat Arms unit in the military can effectively communicate the importance of mastering Small Unit Tactics (SUT). Whether working in 2-man teams, or larger sized elements, one must be able to instinctively apply SUT in order to find, fix, and finish the opposition. This course will provide clients with the confidence and skills needed to effectively shoot, move, and communicate as part of a team. The course begins with Individual Movement Techniques (IMT), which are the basis for SUT, and systematically build up to force-on-force scenarios where elements will have to employ immediate action drills to be successful. The primary blocks of instruction for this course are: IMT, traveling formations, movement techniques, React-to-Contact drills, Command and Control, Troop Leading Procedures, and planning considerations.

End State.
This course results in the mastery of the fundamentals of SUT, patrolling and Urban Movement. Students will develop an overall increased capability to operate in an Urban Environment with the ability to effectively plan and execute team movements. Students will leave with an increased confidence in their ability to overcome adversaries in an austere environment.
