Takistan Ambush

By Army Knowledge Centre February 13, 2019


Mission: Your platoon/section is to conduct an ambush in order to disrupt enemy force reorganisation .... what is your plan?

Quick decision exercises (QDE) provide a great opportunity for you and your team to test your knowledge and decision making skills using different scenarios.

This latest QDE produced by the Army Knowledge Centre and published within Smart Soldier 52 provides excellent insight for conducting an ambush. Once you have come up with your plan, you can arrange (through your unit) to test its likely success using VBS3 at your local Battle Simulation Site. For more information go to Army Knowledge Online (available only on the Defence Protected Network).
