Combined Arms - IDF

Training code

In this course, trainee's will be tested on their ability to work with IDF support, participants will have to prove that they are capable of take into account the risks and limitations when they requests fire missions, and be able to properly request what they need. An understanding of what fire missions are at their disposal will also be tested. The trainee's will also be tested on their ability to judge the terrain and range between the IDF location and their AO, so they will in most cases know before asking for IDF, wether or not it will be available. Last but not least they will also be checked for the ability to relay fire support requests from other elements.
