Incapacitate the enemy Advantages: - Minimise Silhouette - May create illusion of larger force that actually exists - Distraction Disavantages: - Reduced Accuracy - R...

Re: Comment on Entry technique: ISRAELI LIMITET

Just reading the information on this thread, i think what has been overlooked is the difference between military and police views on cqb. Firstly I think aggression, speed and surprise are fundamentals of contact drills be it cqb or otherwise. I think that Limited P loses a little in terms of surpri...

Room Clearing Communications

I am simply wondering what the general consensus on this forum is regarding comms for room clearing, my team mates and I have been trying various ideas to find the ideal balance between speed, safety and good verbal communications. The problem is finding the balance between giving the team leader en...

Hey, I'm Alan.

I have been interested in CQB for around 4 years although really only from a civilian perspective as I have never served and currently have no plans to serve.

I'm really here just to pick up information and contribute to discussions regarding CQB techniques/tactics.

Cheers.

Stacking

Prior to entering a room, how does your team stack on an a door? (for open doors and closed doors). I am wondering about the safety aspect of linear stacks versus double stacks.

As apposed to everyone getting in the room, not stopping at a domination point and on their own with no direction from a TL; shooting the threats, cuffing, clearing closets, stacking on another door and so on. But when you move that quick, you have to have dedicated, experienced Operators, and even...

like it would take too long to clear each room. I don't know. Any thoughts? I always see this as a misconception. I think that both Wall Flood and Immediate Threat should take an equal amount of time to fully clear/secure a room. I see the difference as being the time it takes to put down the first...
