Introduction

5-108. There are several options available to the platoon leader when augmented with vehicles. The platoon leader should employ the vehicles in conjunction with the rifle squads so each complements the other. Some options include -

  • Employ them to support the Infantry rifle squads.
  • Employ them separately to provide heavy direct fires or antiarmor fires.
  • Leave in hide positions.
  • Displace them to a secure location.
