As far as I can see this is the best place to start on TMTs.

Lets see if I can describe how we're taught. Two operator team, front-back with the team going down a hallway. Front operator is doing frontal coverage, rear operator has their back to the back of the front operator providing rear cover. Team comes upon a door and the handle is within reach of the front operator (in other words...operator does not have to reach across the door to engage the door knob). Lead operator signals the rear cover person and engages the door knob, opens the door dynamically and provides engagement and/or cover (depending on the situation). Rear operator then moves into position on the other side of the now open doorway(the side away from the lead operator). At this time, team begin their movements, depending on what they decided and the circumstances faced with.

If the front operator would comes across the entry, and found that the door handle was not in immediate reach when the team came upon the door, the team would then move beyond the door, with the rear operator becoming the person to engage the door & door knob, when the knob became within an easy reach of the rear operator. At that time, the same tactics would occur.

And this continues down the hallway until the entire area is cleared. :wink:

correct... i allways said: two man team against a well trained susspect... well, its not a combat. its surviving... especially in the hallway type building. if you dont need an "asscover" your chance is little bit better. Three basic rules (in our trainings we start with this three): 1., one man always in front cover in the hallway when the team in the halway 2., use the doors like a corner (dinamic open, stay cover, pieing, quick peek, and like this...) and forget the fatal funel if its posible. 3., communication. contact. always.
