Combat Team Comd, Sp Arms Comd, Signaller, Security, FOO, and Engr
RTQ During battle procedure, a commander will conduct his mission analysis
before he issues an initial warning order
RTQ A Warning Order always includes
A demand for acknowledgement
RTQ To fully understand the mission, a subordinate commander must thoroughly understand the intent of their superior commander and the concept of operations of the commander:
one level higher
RTQ To ensure a full understanding of a mission and to identify those tasks that are essential to the accomplishment of that mission is
the purpose of mission analysis
RTQ Three types of Formal Estimates are

RTQ The term "Operational Planning Process (OPP)" is used to describe and manage the procedure that in final form is the "Collective Estimate." This process involves
the commander and a collective staff effort to solve complex problems at higher levels of command
RTQ The preparation of an estimate involves five major steps. The final steps is
translating the best course of action into a plan
RTQ While a CO’s key staff might present certain aspects of the orders for the CO, a CO should always

concept for the operation
RTQ The focus of Manœuvre Warfare is on
the enemy
RTQ Critical to Mission Command are
Unity of Effort and Common Understanding

to repair what they can in situ
RTQ In offensive operations, sustaining the BG as close possible to the forces in contact requires detailed planning and synchronization at all levels. To maximize tempo and maintain momentum consideration should be given to:
distributing CSS assets
RTQ In offensive operations, the success of CSS activities in offensive operations will depend on anticipating requirements and reacting accurately and swiftly to changing circumstances. Echelon HQs and vehicle crews must be fully aware of developing situations. To improve flexibility
command and control of CSS assets are frequently decentralized

RTQ In offensive operations, security must not be compromised by overt logistic activity. Most Battle Group replenishment will occur

RTQ The formation commander provides the delay force commander
either the length of time that the enemy is to be delayed, or the maximum amount of friendly casualties to be sustained

the percentage of his force that he must preserve
