I would be interested in your thoughts on the attached paper. Here's a portion that peaked my interest: Statistical analysis of the firefight data found substantial evidence to support the study’s primary hypothesis. We determined that, on average, mission outcome improves following units’ third firefight and survival rate improves following units’ fourth engagement. In addition, we identified 190 survival factors, casualty factors, and lessons learned from the database of firefight accounts, and 87 factors, skills, and lessons from interviews and correspondence with subject matter experts. Further analysis combined and reduced the results to five categories of skills, knowledge, and behaviors and listed them in order of their contribution to survival during firefights: Weapons Proficiency, Situational Awareness, Tactics and Drills, Cover and Concealment, and Leadership/Communications. Each of the categories is composed of many specific behaviors and skills, which are described in varying detail in the report.
