Abstract:

This report summarizes a two-part video on preparing leaders to train their subordinate leaders and units for the platoon deliberate night attack as part of a rifle company. It integrates training principles dispersed throughout training and doctrine literature and Infantry leader courses. It shares lessons learned on training for night operations from the Joint Readiness Training Center and from experienced military leaders. Night and day photography illustrate the training sequence needed to master the individual and buddy team skills, battle drills, and situational training exercises that support the night attack. Training with night equipment, the multiple-integrated laser engagement system MILES, and a realistic opposing force are stressed, as is leader planning and techniques to maximize training time. The video culminates with night attack training with MILES during the day and then at night, followed by live-fire during the day and then at night. The video was shot at Ft. Bragg, NC with soldiers and leaders from the 82th Airborne Division. The photography was taken by the Marine Corps Combat Camera Unit.
