Noah_Hero Posted April 23, 2020 Share Posted April 23, 2020 As the title says, this guide will teach you the USMC Basic School standardized procedures for Close air Support and Indirect Fire Support. Note: No one expects you to know these things unless you are Platoon Command, RTO/FAC/JTAC/FO, a support element (Air/FSG) or are the leading SL in the field. Therefore the linked PDFs down below provide: Definitions for units, control measures, etc. Step-by-step instructions for the communications between the one ordering and the one providing the respective support from doing the preparations to ending the mission In the CAS-guide there is in addition to this also an example of a transitted 9-line In the IDF-guide this is done individually for each of the different calls for fire (i.e. "adjust fire", "fire for effect", "suppressive fire" and "immediate suppression") Examplatory forms for use in the field In the CAS-guide: 9-line In the IDF-guide: Calls for fire, Message to Observer, correcting the fire, repeating the mission and ending the mission Links to the original pdfs from the USMC Basic School CAS:CAS Request guide and form.pdf IDF:IDF Request guide and form.pdf Edits: 23.04.2020, 13:38 - Added abstracts and definition sections to the guides to make reading easier (i.e. explaining attack controls, etc. at the start) and to provide the reader with more information (i.e. Airspace control measures for CAS, etc.) 19.08.2020, 14:36 - Added the files as downloadables instead of as links Xwatt, Harry, Lindi and 1 other 4 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
