The purpose of Battle Drills? • The goal of training is to produce combat ready units that respond to known or suspected enemy activity and defeat the enemy. Drill training is a key factor in achieving that goal. It describes a training method for small units. This method requires training individual tasks, leader tasks, and collective tasks before the conduct of critical Airsoft missions. Leaders should tailor training to realistic, challenging, and attainable goals while increasing the difficulty of conditions as the unit becomes more proficient. A battle drill is a collective action executed by a Company or smaller element without the application of a deliberate decision-making process. The action is vital to success in combat or critical to preserve combat power. The drill is initiated on a cue, such as an enemy action or simply a leader’s order, and is a trained response to the given stimulus. It requires minimum leader orders to accomplish and is standard throughout the USJTF Regardless of location or Unit.

Training Guidance

Train battle drills using a talk-through, walk-through, and run-through method. You, of course, must be a master of the drill to be trained. You may wish to periodically talk your Operators through the drill--explaining each Operators’s role and then have them go through it slowly, on open ground, correcting any mistakes as they go.
