Previous: E-108: Combat Vehicles Securing Infantry

E-109. Infantry Soldiers can provide security to combat vehicles throughout an operation. In patrol bases and AA, Infantry Soldiers can secure the perimeter while combat vehicles conduct maintenance. During movement, Infantry Soldiers can move to the front, rear, and flanks of combat vehicles to decrease close-in (such as RKG-3, handheld HEAT) antiarmor threats and detect antitank mines. Infantry Soldiers also clear defiles and other terrain restricting the movement of combat vehicles. On the objective, Infantry Soldiers can clear buildings, trenches, and bunkers while conducting EPW searches.
