H-95: Rifle-Launched Entry Munitions

Previous: H-94: Doors, Windows, and Interior Walls

H-95. Rifle-launched entry munitions (RLEM) allow a remote ballistic reduction of an exterior door or window without having the assault or breaching element physically present at the entry point. This allows the assault element to assume a posture for entry in the last covered and concealed position before the breach. The RLEM shooter is not normally part of the assault element but rather a part of the breaching or support element. This allows the RLEM to be fired from one position while the assault element waits in another position. In the event the first round does not affect the reduction, the firer should prepare a second round for reduction or a second firer should be prepared to engage the target.

Note. Exact MSDs for firers and assault elements have not been established for the 150-gram round.
