INITIATIVE BASED TACTICS (IBT)• In the use of IBT every Shooter has to be able to step up and be able to make a decisive decision on the move.• Head and Eyes up!• Move to your point of Domination.• Shoot on the Move, Fast & Accurate Shooting.• Shooters dominate the room from opposing corners, forcing the Enemy to shoot at separate targets.• Be Pro-active! not Reactive!• Close on lone Shooters and Danger areas• Maintain your sector of fire.• Remember the 1 meter Rule.• Must have the ability to perform IBT sub-consciously!!! Muscle Memory.
Doors• If the Hinges can be seen this is the key Indicator that itis an outward opening door. If no hinges are present it’san inward opening door or sliding door.• Depending on what side the Door Knob is on in relationto the stack, if the door knob is on the far side of the doorfrom the stack, some of the shooters are going to have tomove to other side of the door and stack accordingly.
Number One Man• The number one man must first identify what side of the hallway the door is on, then needs to Identify if the door is open or closed, once identified stacks accordingly. Once the number one man has stack up on the door he has to check for any kind of Booby Traps, then he has to Identify if door is locked or unlocked, If the Door is locked it’s time to call out “Breacher UP!!!” and get ready to detroy!• The one Man has the shot if the door opens. The number one man never takes his eye’s off the door incase someone form inside the room opens the door up.• Once the room has been processed the last man in the room is most likely going to be the first man to exit the room since he is closest to the door. Now he will be taking over as number one man and taking over the responsibility’s in calling the shots to the next Room.
Number Two Man• As the number one man is covering down on the door the number two man is pulling security down on the long axis of the hallway also he is assessing the hallway for the next objective room and looking for any kind of obstacles that might impede the team.• If the number one man is unable to open the door or is not comfortable with opening the door the number two man may step around the number one man and check the door to see if it’s locked or not, prep a flashbang, open the door, throw the flashbang in the room wait for the flashbang to detonate then follow the number one man into the room.
