Why Army Recruits Master The 'Rolling T' Combat Formation At Boot Camp | Boot Camp

4 163
We got an inside look at how United States Army infantry soldiers train for combat in urban environments during their 22-week One Station Unit Training.
Senior video correspondent Graham Flanagan spent four days at the Army's Maneuver Center of Excellence inside the Fort Benning military base near Columbus, GA, where future infantry soldiers engage in training known as Military Operations in Urban Terrain, or MOUT.
A 200-square-meter compound built to resemble a European village serves as the MOUT training site, where soldiers spend up to 60 hours in training during their time at Fort Benning.
One of the key components of MOUT is learning a mobile combat formation known as the “Rolling T.” The formation is designed for a four-soldier squad to navigate a hallway or corridor, and adapt when faced with corners or intersections where an unseen threat may exist. According to Staff Sgt. Dewayne Waugh, the formation is applicable wherever the Army is tasked with conducting search and clearance operations in urban environments.
According to one former Army soldier who spoke to Business Insider, avoiding civilian casualties is one of the biggest takeaways during MOUT training. Role players pretending to be civilians are used to ensure the mission objectives are accomplished without harming bystanders.

More to MOUNT training than this. Fort Ord in the 80's for me. Good training there. We used oranges and apples with the practice grenade blasting caps. The Army got a little pissed. We cleaned it up before we left.

The explanation of this formation is garbage. First of all 3 in the front 1 to 2 in the back is so the first 3 can check two corners and down a corridor. Stacking corners is a great tactic though. The narration is shit in this video though. There is tons of different formations though urban combat demands multi man pushes through rooms due to corners.

"for safety the soldiers rifles are plugged"
Those are gas traps so that a blank round can still cycle the bolt. They aren't plugged...

Jesus was born to a virgin, turned water to wine, taught, healed the sick, raised the dead, casted out demons, walked on water, and calmed the storm, among many other things. He was killed, and three days later He rose from the dead. Forty days later He ascended into heaven where He sits at the right hand of the Father. He is returning very soon, but before He does, Satan, the devil, is coming to pretend to be Jesus. Satan is an angel, and he will have certain supernatural powers with which to try to fool everyone. He will, for example, be able to make fire come down from heaven in the sight of men. He will only be on earth a short time before the real King of Kings, Jesus Christ, God in the flesh, returns. When the real Jesus comes we will all be transformed into our spiritual bodies at the same moment. Jesus came to offer forgiveness of sins and eternal life to anyone who believes and calls on His precious name.

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; - Romans 3:23

For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. - Romans 6:23

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. - John 3:16-18
Now the God of peace be with you all. Amen. - Romans 15:33

although this formation has its advantages, it leaves soldiers open to direct fire in open long hallways. I would rather pie a corner than poke out my knee or upper body trying to do the low / high man technique. The old school basics work for a reason. Now they will have to get retrained at their first duty station.

I’d imagine the wide guy would be most vulnerable. Assuming he gets hit, wouldn’t he essentially be stuck out in the open if something happens? Since everyone would get back around the corner.

Pussyfication training, you don't send in the military untill it's time to fight and destroy the enemy. Next they'll be training aircrews to launch water balloons.
It's this very attitude that causes trouble for America, like the politicians that believe they can bomb a village and than talk peace. You don't start a fight you can't finish. You don't kill people and think their family and friends are going to forgive and forget. Our politician's are the worst spoiled, stupid, menace to world peace in history.

It shouldn’t be about protecting anyone besides their fellow soldier. This is war, check if the enemy is an enemy after you blow them away. If you’re in a war zone you’re a possible enemy
