Question Description

***Is there anyone who can take the attached USMC Platoon defensive operation order and create a media to show the work, the correct operational terms and graphics must be used.

Visual Aid (map, power point, terrain model)

• Provides clarity to the operations order (additive) • Addresses both the company level and the platoon levels. (big to small) • Includes the following information: current location, direction of north, key terrain, tactical control measures within the area of operations (AO), and cardinal direction the defense is oriented. • Employs proper symbolism

***This is just and example of how to make a Fire plan sketch***

Annex B: Step-by-step how to create a fire plan sketch Step Action 1 Determine appropriate scale required for creation of your platoon fire plan sketch. This means determining the dimensions, in meters, of each box on your graph paper. (remember that the ratio of your scale should grow as the FPS progress from FT to Sqd to Plt). 2 Ensure that you know the length of each squad battle position (pace it off to be exact) as well as the attitude of the position. This will allow you to be precise when you place it on the grid lines. (You can also use a GPS to get the 8-10-digit grid for each position, or the left and right most holes for the fire teams/squads sectors. This info can also be used to place the positions on the grid lines.) 3 Use the grid lines available to orient the grids north. Reference the squad fire plan sketches and, based on the attitude and size (measure both with a protractor), draw your ME and both SE squads’ primary positions. Repeat for alternate and supplementary positions as necessary. 4 Draw and label the platoon CP. Your company commander may need this information later on. 5 Use the protractor to measure and draw each squad’s left and right limits (Magnetic Azimuths) using a dotted line Primary Positions Alternate Positions Supplementary Positions Write the azimuth for each sector along its associated line 6 Use the protractor to draw: For Plt – MG PDFs and FPLs; do not include SAW PDFs (You may choose to include some SAW PDFs based on the SAWs’ location in the defense and importance in the overall fire plan.) FPLs are depicted with a bold line for grazing fire; where grazing fire cannot be achieved, the dead space is shown by a thin line. FPLs have a magnetic azimuth For Sqd – SAW and M203 PDFs for each fire team; SAW PDF has magnetic azimuths M203 has magnetic azimuth and range to target/dead-space in meters Write the azimuth for each PDF/FPL along its associated line 7 Annotate key terrain on the sketch (large fingers or draws, roads, steams and large amounts of dead space. Try not to clutter the sketch. Ensure the terrain matches what you see in front of you. (This portion falls under the art of developing the sketch. Try to balance the need for detail with avoiding clutter/confusion on the sketch). Page 32 of 34 8 Draw and number Target Reference Points (TRPs) and trigger lines Are TRPs recognizable? Do they make sense? Do all the Marines know their respective TRPs/trigger lines? 9 Annotate targets (maintain grids to targets on another piece of paper) ensure FPF target is drawn with boxes. Each box is labeled with a number that corresponds to a gun on the gun-line. Annotate whether or not the FPF has been registered. 10 Annotate obstacles. This includes both existing and reinforcing obstacles. (Maintain grids to obstacles on another sheet of paper; this includes early warning devices). 11 Draw Passage Points for patrols. Draw Check Points for patrols if applicable. Draw LP/OPs 12 Complete the marginal information 13 Create a copy of the fire plan sketch. You will keep one and turn the other one over to your company commander. Ensure to update as required.

Running head: PLATOON DEFENSIVE OPERATION ORDER 1 Platoon Defensive Operation Order Orientation Company Q Headquarters PNS, Qasim naval base Weapons Squad Mortar Section 1st Squad-ME 2nd Squad-SL 3rd Squad-SL Situation The area of interest is Quantico town, Prince William County, Virginia. The predominant region is the eastern region called Potomac River is utilized as a staging area for military forces and military operations to the North. The area of operations: Potomac River is situated in the Eastern region of Quantico town. On the left descending bank, the river forms the border between Maryland and Washington, D.C. On the right side, the river borders West Virginia and Virginia. Obstacles; Hilly areas and buildings where the river borders Quantico town. The obstacles FT3456788 give the insurgent forces a substantial strategic night time advantage because of the transformation in canal movement and elevation. PLATOON DEFENSIVE OPERATION ORDER 2 Channels of Approach: The trees will grant a sporadic disguise during movement. Numerous channels of approach lead to an area of operations (A.O.). The Urban region where the river borders Quantico town will permit easy movement up-the-stream. Key Terrain: Quantico Creek vicinity grid FT3456788 provides un-advanced river access entering AO. Open field located at grid FT3456789 use as LZ/PZ. River bank vicinity in grid FT3456787 provide high visibility. Potomac River in vicinity FT 65653 43434 s key to staging operations. Weather: 27 degrees high/ 12 degrees low Situation Enemy Insurgent forces (IF) have been operating a Command, Control, and Communications (C3) node and keeping weapons caches in the banks of Potomac River. IF have enjoyed liberty throughout Quantico town. IF enjoy the liberty of movement along Quantico Creek. The insurgents are expected to pursue an optional channel of approach into the Potomac River region, through Independent Hill defend the C3 node and weapons cache. An alighted enemy battalion occupied the Southeast area of Quantico with seeking backing from the residents. Reports indicate that they are armed with 240B, M249, and M16’s. The insurgents are reported to exist in three groups and have their specialized uniform that may make then invisible at night. Once invaded, they can seek reinforcement from other squads that access their bases using Potomac River within 20 minutes. The reinforcement is likely to come from Quantico Creek. They may reiterate with a bigger force, but we will break the reinforcement if we engage them decisively. Multiple wire barriers all-through the defensive positions laid, tripwire triggered during any time of the invasion. PLATOON DEFENSIVE OPERATION ORDER 3 Capabilities and Restrictions: The insurgents can protect in place, undertake delay, or withdraw. They can also reinforce or counterattack with an organic unit or counterattack with a weapon cache located downstream at Independent Hill with six hours. Leader (IL): I anticipate the IF will guard in place and try to defeat the attack with numerous direct fires at the barrier and make us combat multiple successive positions. CL: IF reinforces or retaliates with the M67 grenades before the channel is safeguarded and quick defense is initiated. Situation Friendly 1st Platoon-Greater Unit. Show C-Node, Attain control of IF North and terminate the enemy C3 node, weapons warehouse, and any resources to avert any reinforcement and prevent their assemblage and any other support that may be gained 2nd Platoon-East Unit. Show C-Node attack and secure South-half TR1 to interrupt insurgent operations and permit liberty of movement of the main effort. 3rd Platoon-South Unit secures main banks bordering Quantico Town to avert efforts of reinforcement from other bases and ensure support for the main effort. Civilian deliberations: Residents within Quantico Town are friendly supporters of government initiatives and do not, in any way, support insurgent operations. Mission 1st PLT will undertake an invasion in Quantico Creek on OTS Quan in vicinity FT3456788 and terminate insurgent C3 node, weapon warehouses, and supply resources to avert enemies’ efforts to gain support and influence from sympathizers and have to follow instructions given by the commander. PLATOON DEFENSIVE OPERATION ORDER 4 Execution Commander’s Intent: Motive of this operation is avert the insurgent forces liberty of movement (stop their advance, eliminate their C3 note and weapons so that they do not become stronger. The Platoon will control the Potomac River region by controlling main avenues of approach and damaging the enemy’s communications and cache sites in the Quantico area. End Intent: a. All insurgent forces on OTS Quan terminated or apprehended b. All insurgents’ C3 nodes and warehouses secured c. 1st Platoon captures the OTS Quan territory with no casualties on their side and prepares to follow further instructions d. 1st Platoon creates a quick company perimeter fence and ensures the operation is stable. Concept of Operations The first Platoon will attack OTS Queen from the eastern side with one tank up and two mech platoon, one CAAT in ovenvatch, and one OCD back. After they clear the Potomac banks, the first Platoon will safeguard OTS King in the sector with one CAAT and one tank squad up in security region, and two mech squads back in B.F. Chief Effort: The one mech platoon attacks to terminate the enemy on the eastern half of Quantico region. Supporting Effort1: One tank plat offers termination and suppressive fires ISO the breach and the assault on the designated region. Supporting Effort2: One CAAT offers Ovenvatch of the company in its suppression in the South. PLATOON DEFENSIVE OPERATION ORDER 5 Design to Maneuver The operated will be 4-phased.
