- We will be fighting in Urban terrain. Take it slow, be methodical, and work with closely with fellow units.

- IED's will be present, if an IED is present without an ambush element, establish security with a 50-100 meter radius around the IED. Clear all civilians, radio command with grid coordinates of IED and wait for engineers to arrive.

- If an IED is present in an Ambush situation, break contact in a controlled manner, radio for QRF, and assess the situation. If it is possible to maneuver and push into the ambushing force's flank, due so. If you are heavily outnumbered and unable to achieve fire superiority, fall back to a hard point and await arrival of QRF.
