Reconnaissance by Fire
Reconnaissance by Fire is a technique used when firing into a terrain position that could be or is suspected as being occupied by the enemy.
- Reconnaissance by fire does not mean to blindly fire into a position in the hopes of hitting something
- The main goal is to provoke the enemy into returning fire or fleeing, either confirming the presence of the enemy or confirming that the position is not manned
- Any enemy units identified with reconnaissance by fire would then be attacked with either Fire & Movement, Squad/Platoon Attack Drill, or attacked by fire
