Fire Support Coordination Measures and Cross Boundary Engagement

I am more than aware of the methods that can be used for putting in graphics to enable battlespace to be identified and managed in terms on Manoeuvre.

 

However, what I have not managed to achieve is the control of battlespace in terms of Fire Support Coordination - ie boundaries are Restricted Fire Lines (RFL)/ Areas (RFAs), management of Coordinated Fire Lines etc.

 

Clearly I don't want to stop units engaging cross boundary if they are being engaged, but it might be useful to apply fire control between adjacent Pls and Coys / Tps and Sqns.

 

Any thought of how this could be achieved using existing exercise design tools.

I'm assuming you mean for neighbouring AI controlled units, since the human controlled training audience (for want of a better term) are controlled by the scenario brief / orders they may receive from HICON during the activity.

 

For the flanking forces, you can script units to move to a location and "Open Fire If ..." and set the condition that they only open fire if the enemy have entered say a pre defined EA or similar area /region.

 

You can finesse this a bit further by adding controls for Blue units.

 

So you can have a a flanking unit commence providing SBF on say OBJ A as the assault unit crosses the LD (with an associated region) and check fire as the assaulting unit enters a region around the OBJ (with a different associated region).

 

Is that the sort of thing you are after?

Hope you get the outcome you are after.

 

Happy to work through it with you, if you need a hand (assuming we can create the desired effect). :)
