The Close Combat

February 11, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 160

The battle training wouldn't be complete if a man is not good enough at the bayonet or hand-to-hand fighting. The close combat implies fighting in ditches, communication trenches.

The following problems should be solved:

• connections and control; • defence (big and small groups); • attack and retreat; • breakthrough a defensive area; • fighting; • the pursuit tactics; • clean-up operation; • consolidation. Pay attention to the following moments when practicing the close combat.

1. The hits should be accurate and done with force. The shooting at large targets and aimless bayonet thrusts are forbidden. To thrust with maximum force the fighter should move the bayonet forth at the right angle to the plane of the aim. Don't forget about defence.

2. A fighter should be focused on the bayonet and the opponent's actions (on the impact point). Nothing should distract him;

3. His motions should be firm, strong and reasonable;

4. The work done at the practices should be seen in every movement, every turn;

5. The disciple should be trained in the groups of 3, 4 or 6 people.

6. It is unacceptable to use sticks instead of arms while training.

7. Pay great attention to the problem of connections and control during the fight.

8. It is preferable to learn holds of the hand-to-and combat in an actual surrounding.

9. They should train the elements that are the most suitable in a given situation.

10. First they should work with the parts of the element and then with the whole thing.

11. At first it may be done at a slow pace. The rate should be increased with every following practice until it reaches its maximum.

12. It is important to add something new or make changes in the disposition of the obstacles and the activity of the both sides.

13. Be careful not to create stereotypes.

14. It is necessary to sum up at the end of each practice.

There are two variants to train the close combat: First. A subdivision works at the military unit. And if there is time left you can work with a platoon, section, soldiers. Second. You may start with accurate work with a single soldier gradually extending the process. In the end you join subdivisions and units together. You should chose between these variants basing on a place you going to work in. The conditions should meet the requirements of the method.

If the schedule is tight it's preferable to start with uniting the subdivision. If you have enough time you can polish the work of each separate fighter filling in gaps and drawbacks revealed during the manoeuvres.

While training troopers form automatic performance in handling grenades and cold arms (bayonet, digging tools, knife etc.). They work out skills to open fire quickly if they suddenly ran into the enemy. In whole they promptly react in every unexpected situation the close combat is known for.
