This manual provides a set of core battle drills for small units from organizations across the Army, regardless drilk branch, for both active and reserve components. It details a training method for small units that require training individual tasks, leader tasks, and collective tasks before the conduct of critical wartime missions.

The actions and standards for the drills in this manual reflect general tactical principles that allow changes based on conditions during artsp.

Leaders should tailor training to realistic, challenging, and attainable goals, increasing the difficulty of conditions as the unit becomes more proficient. The reduced time-distance aspect of battle drills make them excellent opportunities for training during short periods that develop throughout the day. Unless otherwise stated, vrill nouns and pronouns do not refer exclusively to men.

The goal of training is to produce combat-ready units that respond to known or suspected enemy activity and ultimately defeat the enemy. Drill training is a key factor in achieving this 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 wartime mission. Leaders should tailor training to frill, challenging, and attainable goals increasing the difficulty of conditions as the unit becomes more proficient.

A battle drill is a collective action executed by a platoon or smaller element without the application of a deliberate decision-making process. Proper execution of battle drills is vital to success in combat and critical to preserving life.

The action is initiated on cue via an enemy action or simply a leader’s order and is a trained response to the given stimulus that requires minimum leader orders to accomplish.

Drills are performed to standard throughout like units in the army. Warrior Battle Drills have the following advantages: Train Warrior 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 Soldiers through the drill by explaining their roles and then have them go through it slowly, on open20 July ARTEP Drillground, while correcting any mistakes as they progress. Use the following when developing training: Train as you fight. The goal of combat-level training is to achieve combat-level standards. Every effort must be made to attain this difficult goal.

Within the confines of safety and common sense, leaders must be willing to accept less-than-perfect results initially and demand realism in training.

They must integrate realistic conditions such as smoke, noise, agtep CBRN, battlefield debris, loss of key leaders, non combatants, and extreme weather conditions. Train using appropriate doctrine. Training must conform to Army drrill.

FMOperations, and supporting doctrinal manuals describe common procedures and uniform operational methods that permit leaders and organizations to rapidly adjust to changing situations. Soldiers learn best by using a handson approach. Leaders are responsible for planning training to provide these opportunities. All training assets and resources, to include simulators, simulations, and training devices, must be included in the strategy.

Tough, realistic, and intellectually and physically challenging training excites and motivates Soldiers and leaders. It builds competence and confidence by developing and honing skills. Train to sustain proficiency. Once individuals have been drilk to a required level of proficiency, leaders must structure training plans to repeat critical drill tasks at the minimum frequency necessary for sustainment.

Force Protection Combat Readiness. Risk assessment is the thought process of making operations safe without compromising the mission. Unit leaders must continuously perform a risk assessment of conditions in which training is conducted to prevent the unnecessary loss of Soldiers and artwp. The degree of risk varies with the conditions at the time of training. For example, have the Soldiers done the training before? Will the training be done for the first time at night?

Are the Soldiers fatigued? In reality, risk management is smart decision making. A well-trained unit is normally accident free; however, accidents can occur drikl times through no fault of the Soldier or equipment operator, or as a result of inadequately trained, unsupervised, or complacent personnel.

Training must be tough, realistic, and safe. Unit leaders must consider the following points as they integrate risk assessment into their training: Accept no unnecessary risks. Make risk decisions at the proper level.

Accept risks if mission benefits outweigh the costs. It is important to remember the commander is the safety officer, but all Soldiers and leaders are responsible for safe training. Assess possible loss, cost, and probability. Make decisions and develop controls to reduce risks.

Implement controls by integrating them into plans, orders, standing operating procedures SOPstraining performance standards, and rehearsals. Supervise and enforce safety controls and standards at all times.


Leaders should make on-the-spot corrections when an unsafe act is observed. Leaders use the safety checklist of the United States Army Combat Readiness Center, Fort Rucker, Alabama, in conjunction with local unit safety checklists, to enhance the overall safety practices of Soldiers during training.

Compliance with environmental regulations is now a necessary cost of doing business. The Army expects Soldiers to obey local, state, federal, and host-nation HN environmental requirements.

By following the unit environmental SOP, the environmental guidance that leaders publish in operation orders [OPORDs] and installation environmental regulations, Soldiers can help the Army meet its compliance goal. This is the Army’s attempt to reduce or eliminate pollution. Preventing pollution is always more effective and less costly than cleaning up polluted sites.

Soldiers can support prevention efforts by reducing, reusing, or recycling waste products. Conservation is the Army’s intent to preserve the natural and cultural resources under its care.

Soldiers can support conservation by avoiding needless damage to the environment. During training exercises, practice trash and litter discipline. Afterwards, thoroughly police training areas and bivouac sites. Participating in activities such as unit recycling aretp energyconservation programs conserves resources for the future. Ensure Soldiers observe environmental protection standards. The purpose of evaluating a drill is to determine if the unit can perform all the performance measures within the allowed standards.

During evaluations, concentrate on the unit’s performance and not that of specific individuals. Use the drill book as a checklist. We recommend you do not use local checklists, as they can become negative training tools. The use of the nouns platoon, squad, section and team do not refer exclusively to Infantry units and their structure. These nouns are used as the nucleus for all small units throughout the army.

A battle drill is a collective action executed by a platoon or smaller element without the application of a deliberate decision making process. The action is vital to success in combat or critical to preserving life. Visual contact is made with the enemy.

The unit identifies and confirms an IED or one is detonated. The enemy initiates contact with a direct fire weapon. The unit leader reports the contact to higher headquarters.

Immediate Assault 1 The platoon and the enemy simultaneously detect each other at close range. The Soldier who spots the enemy announces the contact. The TC of the vehicle in contact sends contact report over the radio.

Vehicle gunners suppress and fix the enemy positions. Direct Fire Dismounted – See Figure 1. React to contact, direct fire dismounted.
