I think I'll have to add this to my electronic library and use it to build up my defences at home. ;)


Army Special Forces’ How-To Manual

Want to know how to set up camp in hostile territory? The Army’s Field Manual (FM) 3-05.230, Special Forces Tactical Facilities, is now on-line. It goes into a fair amount of detail about how the Special Forces troops establish outposts, and makes for fascinating reading. It deals with everything from calling in close air support, to how thick to build your compound’s walls, depending on what type of incoming fire you’re anticipating.
Think of it as the Boy Scout Handbook for warriors.

I've been to at least 2 of the sites pictured in the manual. Most 3rd and 7th Groupers would recognize the FOB pictured in figure 2-1.
