Any other movement techniques besides urban as mentioned in another topic?

For example: Crossing open ground, danger areas, general movement techniques and different terrains such as forest/jungle, desert, snow.

For forest areas you should be careful for traps(if you happen to fight people that actually use them) and ambushes while moving, and the formation may be chosen depending on the terrain, since you may be in a really dense forest in which you may have to use some kind of column or in a pretty "wide" one in which most formations work. Open field crossing is tricky(you have to be careful because you can easily get ambushed by a couple of HMGs from under cover, which is why it is recommended to do bounding overwatch in fields... smoke 'nades are mandatory). There is a video on YouTube on danger crossing...

...which can be done in many ways.
Mountain areas are tricky and I don't really know much about them(I may be able to find an active from a mountain warfare battalion and follow with some info on that)
