The prone protected posture is defined as a prone man taking cover in, under, or beside some piece of equipment, a man-made feature, or a natural feature. The vulnerability of a prone protected man is less than that of a prone man but greater than that of a man crouching in a foxhole. The prone protected man is described by nine different functions representative of mechanized infantry, artillery, supply, and transportation personnel. Eight of these functions are combined by a weighting scheme based on the Soviet Army organization into one function. The resultant function is used to calculate some representative lethal areas.
