A-66: Questions

Previous: A-65: Analysis of Enemy

A-66. Analyzing the enemy answers the question, “What is the enemy doing and why?” Leaders also answer—

  • What is the composition and strength of the enemy force?
  • What are the capabilities of his weapons? Other systems?
  • What is the location of current and probable enemy positions?
  • What is the enemy’s most probable course of action? (DRAW-D [defends, reinforce, attack, withdraw, or delay]).
