CQB and H2H Course
August CQB-Team provided a
special designed course to a military unit in close quarter battle tactics
and hand to hand combat.
This unit had
some unique problems with there building clearing skills, and contacted
CQB-Team for help and guidens.
Some of the
issues were that there sop for the second clearing of a room was slow, and
there was many ways to do this, this was to confusing. Other issues were
that they not always knew how many operators they had to a conduct a Direct
Action mission that suddenly accrued. Last but not least the use of
distraction grenades was not always available to the team.
tailored a special unit sop, to this team, by modifying the pros of the wall
flood and combining it with the aggression of some of the Israeli entry
techniques. The Wall flood was also designed so it didn’t matter if 2 or 10
men made entry to a room.
The course was
held in an military facility close to civilians so explosive breaching
tactics was not used, due to safety concerns.
Live fire shooting was done at a range. The facilities didn’t have a shoot
house, so FX and blanks was used to conduct the training. This also gave the
opportunity to train force on force.
provided a unique Hand2hand system for room combat, this system is most
favourable to use in room clearing missions, do to the fact that the
operators are very heavy and restricted do to all the entry gear and the
manpower that is available in a wall flood.
system took 8 hours of training to reach a level for all team members to
understand and perform this effective in varies scenarios, and in future to
function as instructors for new operators. An easy and effective system.
asked for some more aggressive ways do conduct clearing missions, so a big
part of the course was about saturation tactics. But also small team tactics
was covered do to the fact that a mission might fail and the unit could risk
braking up in small teams.
