The Role Of The Mechanized Infantry Rifle Platoon (Bradley Fighting Vehicle) - The mission of the mechanized infantry is to close with the enemy using fire and movement to defeat or capture him, or to repel his assault by fire, close combat, or counterattack. Among other things, the mechanized infantry relies on the principles of war and the dynamics of combat power. These basics apply at both platoon and squad levels. Section I. MECHANIZED INFANTRY RIFLE PLATOON EMPLOYMENT - Despite any technological advantages our armed forces might have over an enemy, the only way to gain the decision in battle is by close combat between ground forces. Mechanized infantry rifle forces equipped with the Bradley fighting vehicle (BFV) play the following main roles in close combat situations: Operate mainly at night or during other periods of natural or induced limited visibility. Penetrate and hold existing (natural and man-made) obstacles and difficult terrain as pivots for operational and tactical maneuver. Attack over approaches not feasible for armored forces. Seize or secure forested and built-up areas. Control restrictive routes for use by other forces. Conduct rear area operations.
