Keys to Survival

Post by Ryan » Tue Mar 27, 2012 11:33 am

What do you think some of the keys to survival are?

For instance: I believe it's a mixture of tactical consciousness, accuracy, speed and positioning. They are the main categories for me that enhance survivability and success rate. Attributes come into it such as patience, diligence.

And what are some of the drills you know to enhance survivability?

For instance: The ADF have the basic survivability drill.

"The basic drill is a simple survival procedure, it increases the survivability of the soldier under fire. The sequence of the basic drill is as follows:

Run,
Down,
Crawl,
Aim,
Fire."

It is usually taught that aiming may come before crawling if there is an immediate threat, but if not you should crawl to the nearest cover.

"Pragmatism over theory."
"Anyone with a weapon is just as deadly as the next person."
"Unopposed CQB is always a success, if you wanted you could moonwalk into the room holding a Pepsi."

I'm only answering question 2 here, I've already mentioned battle drills in another thread. I think the pdf that I linked there says a lot about how much a conditioned response in the form of drills will increase the probability of survival.
