AIR ASSAULT

AIR ASSAULT OPERATIONS ARE THOSE IN WHICH ASSAULT

FORCES (C, CS, CSS) USING THE FIREPOWER, MOBILITY, AND

TOTAL INTEGRATION OF HELICOPTER ASSETS, MANEUVER

ON THE BATTLEFIELD UNDER THE CONTROL OF THE GROUND

OR AIR MANEUVER COMMANDER TO ENGAGE AND DESTROY

ENEMY FORCES OR SEIZE AND HOLD KEY TERRAIN.

TASK FORCE PLANNING CONSIDERATIONS:

* DIVISION DIRECTED

* ESTABLISHED EARLY W/ CLEARLY DEFINED POSITIONS

* BATTALION IS LOWEST LEVEL STAFFED TO

PLAN, COOR, & CONTROL AASLT

* AASLT TF EXIST FOR SPECIFIC MISSION

PRINCIPLES OF EMPLOYMENT

AIR ASSAULT

* ASSIGNED MISSIONS THAT TAKE ADVANTAGE

OF SUPERIOR MOBILITY

* ALWAYS FIGHT AS A COMBINED ARMS TEAM

* AVAILABILITY OF AVN ASSETS IS CRITICAL

* PLANNING MUST BE CENTRALIZED AND PRECISE;

EXECUTION IS DECENTRALIZED

* MAY BE CONDUCTED AT NIGHT OR IN

ADVERSE WEATHER

* UNIT TACTICAL INTEGRITY MUST BE MAINTAINED

* FIRE SUPPORT FOR FLIGHT ROUTES AND LZ AREAS

5 PHASES OF THE AIR ASSAULT

* GROUND TACTICAL PLAN

* LANDING PLAN

* AIR MOVEMENT PLAN

* LOADING PLAN

* STAGING PLAN

Air Assault Planning

“ The Ground Tactical Plan drives the Air Assault. It is the first step in an integrated backward planning process.” 101st Gold Book

The Five Plans tie together in this way:

  • The Ground Tactical Planrelates to LZ selection.

  • LZ selection creates the Landing Plan.

  • The LZ location directs the Air Movement Plan.

  • The flight routes and current friendly locations dictate the Loading Plan and PZ locations.

  • The PZ loading plan designates the requirements that become the Staging Plan.

Air Assault Planning

Nine Planning Steps

1. Parallel Planning - ID Avn Resources, allocate serials by assault, ID PZs and LZs, ID number of required turns, ID composition of assaults

2. Air Movement Annex - Lift and Serial Composition, PZs and LZs, Air Routes, LZ Intelligence Products, Any deviations from SOP

3. Air Mission Coordination Meeting (AMCM) - Completes coord between Avn and Gnd Forces, , finalizes air movement and landing plan

4. Air Mission Brief (AMB) - Air Assault OPORD (Gnd and Air)

5. The Aircrew Brief (ACB) - Aviation focused Mission Order

6. The Pilot/Serial Brief (P/SB) - Crew Level Dissemination of the Plan

7. Brigade Rehearsal - Starts w/ GTP, then covers Landing and Air Movement Plan

8. PZ Rehearsal - Run by the BDE XO, covers Staging, Loading and Air Movement Plans

9. The PZ Update Brief - Final update to Key leaders on the Air Assault (Conditions Check)


Setting the conditions l.jpg

Setting the Conditions

  • Four Operations:

  • Condition Checks

  • MEDEVAC/CASEVAC Operations

  • Attack Helicopter Operations

  • Air Assault Artillery Operations


Conditions checks l.jpg

Conditions Checks

  • A series of checks conducted by BOS at Division and Brigade Level (standardized checklists, modified by METT-T)

  • Used to confirm SA on Enemy, Friendly, Terrain and Weather

  • Results in a “GO”, “NO GO” or a modification to the mission, allocation of resources, or timeline

AIR ASSAULT

PZ SELECTION CRITERIA

* NUMBER OF PZs

* SIZE OF PZs

* PROXIMITY OF TROOPS

* ACCESSIBILITY

* VULNERABILITY TO ATTACK

AND OBSERVATION

* PREPARATION


Slide14 l.jpg

* OBSTACLES

* IDENTIFICATION FROM THE AIR

* APPROACH AND DEPARTURE ROUTES

* WEATHER

AIR ASSAULT

LZ SELECTION CRITERIA

* LOCATION

* CAPACITY

* ALTERNATE LZs

* ENEMY DISPOSITION AND CAPABILITIES

* COVER AND CONCEALMENT


Slide15 l.jpg

AIR ASSAULT

FIRE SUPPORT PLANNING CRITERIA

* ESSENTIAL FIRE SUPPORT TASKS

* FIRE SUPPORT PLAN

- SCHEME OF FIRES/SEAD PLAN

- TARGET LIST

- PRIORITY OF FIRES

- TARGET PRIORITIES

- ALLOCATION OF FS ASSETS

- FIRE SPT COOR MEASURES

- FIRING BATTERY LOCATIONS

* COOR WITH BDE FSE & COLTS

* WHO PLANS? WHO CONTROLS?


Air movement table l.jpg

* AIRCRAFT ALLOCATIONS

* DESIGNATES LIFTS AND SERIALS

* SPECIFIES ROUTES, SPs, RPs, LZs, AND TIME SEQUENCE

* BASED ON H-HOUR SEQUENCE AND GROUND SPEEDS

* PREPARED BY THE AVIATORS AND THE AATF STAFF

AIR MISSION BRIEFING

AIR ASSAULT


Lessons learned l.jpg

* DEFINING TASK FORCE COMMAND AND CONTROL

* AIR MISSION COORDINATION

* TIME MANAGEMENT

* INADEQUATE REHEARSALS

* DEVELOPMENT OF A FIRE SUPPORT PLAN

* SITUATIONAL AWARENESS

* LNO OPERATIONS

* INADEQUATE USE OF LIFT AVIATION BY THE BCT

* UNDERDEVELOPED BUMP PLAN

* INADEQUATE ROLE OF PZ OFFICER

* CONTINGENCY PLANNING

* POOR PZ/LZ SELECTION

LESSONS LEARNED

AIR ASSAULT


Air movement l.jpg

AIR MOVEMENT OPERATIONS ARE THOSE OPERATIONS DESIGNED TO MOVE SUPPLIES, EQUIPMENT, AND PERSONNEL. AIR MOVEMENT OPERATIONS ARE NOT CONDUCTED IN DIRECT CONTACT WITH THE ENEMY, AND MAY NOT INCLUDE OTHER MEMBERS OF THE COMBINED ARMS TEAM.
