MORE THAN INDIRECT FIRE SUPPORT
Tracking operations and controlling indirect fires are obvious uses of our classic hard-surface Battle Boards, but we're hearing of new uses from people all the time. From patrolling to TOC operations to pre-flight planning, Battle Board products facilitate every mission, daily routine, or operation.
Using Battle Boards in the Field
I use my Scout as a squad leader book and land nav aid. It’s always on me for whenever I need to take notes or plan anything.
As the BDE Medical Operations Officer I track evac operations and patient tracking. I need to know where the Combat Arms BNs are to coordinate med ops.
I use the SCOUT as a crew commander for an AFV. It's usually used as a place to write down contact reports and other details about the reconnaissance aspect of the job
I use my Scout as a daily journal and organizational tool and the Expedition as a brief case and I-pad holder. I use them in the field to organize maps, rosters and other operations focused paperwork like rosters and EDL’s.
As an AH-64 platoon leader I use the Expedition to update battlefield graphics from CP prior to launch. Additionally I use it for backup navigation in case of GPS spoof/jam and to mark enemy locations as observed.
The Battle Board is ideal, durable and exactly what I need to stay organized with my map readily available and at my convenience.
