5 Course Description -Operational environment -You are a squad leader in a light infantry company that will conduct combat operations on the grounds of West Point. -You will plan an air assault to seize key terrain -You will plan a defense to block an enemy mounted avenue of approach -You will plan an urban attack to seize an enemy headquarters - Bottom line: you will plan squad level offensive and defensive operations and produce two written OPORDs

6 MS203 CONCEPT Lesson 1-3 TLPs using OHW RTW Lesson 16-19: Offense, Seize the Firstie Club Lesson Defense of Ruger Road Lesson 4-10 OPORD instruction, Seize Ampitheater (OPORD Test)

7 MS 203  20 Lessons Per Term (.5 Credit Hours)  Academic Course held during all academic hours  Doctrinal-based Instruction  DMI 6 Intent: Bring the Army into the classroom

8 Assessment Plan Overview OPORD Test (LSN 11)= 100 pts WARNO 1 (Defense) LSN 12= 50 pts OPORD1 (Defense) LSN 14= 100 pts WARNO 2 (Offense) LSN 16= 50 pts OPORD 2 (Offense) LSN 19= 100pts Instructor Points = 100 pts Total Points= 500 pts

9 MS Core Classes Standards  Participation Alertness  Quizzes  Blackboard discussion  Graphics  Conduct  Appearance Haircut Uniform Shoes  Attitude  Cadet Knowledge = Instructor Points (20% of Final Grade)

10 MS Core Courses DMI Standard Grade Scale A % - Mastery of concepts A % - Can apply concepts to new situations A % - Solid understanding of concepts B % - Strong foundation for future work B % - Moderate understanding of concepts B % - Basic understanding of concepts C % - Acceptable understanding C % - Questionable foundation for future work C % - Doubtful understanding of concepts D % - Weak foundation for future work F < 67% - Failed to demonstrate understanding

11 Rules of Engagement  Only “Green” discussion, not “Gray”  No Eating/Drinking in Classroom  Inform your Instructor and Section Marcher prior to missing class  Stay Awake!! Bottom Line: Expectations of cadets will be the same in MS classes as elsewhere in the Army

17 Scenario

18 HISTORICAL BACKGROUND JUL-AUG 2004 – US launches Operation HIGHLAND WARRIOR. TF HIGHLANDER successfully destroys PLA and Atlantican Advisors in AO BUCKNER. US forces are well received due to “humane” execution of combat operations. PLA disperses into urban areas vic Highland Falls and West Point. DIABLO elements remain primary threat with remnants of PLA forces SEP-DEC 2004 – West Point and Highland Falls were relatively untouched by the war. DIABLO, PLA and foreign fighters assumed control of West Point. West Point is a sacred city to Cortinian and Atlanticans. Battle Monument is a holy shrine as it commemorates the dead from the 1680 battle with Spanish Conquistadores DEC 2004 – TF HIGHLANDER (brigade) receives order to conduct combat operations in AO WEST POINT.

19 Current Situation You are in Cortina, AO BUCKNER You are the squad leader of 1 st squad, 1 st platoon, A Company, 3 rd Battalion, 27 th Infantry (1/1/A/3-27 IN) Your platoon leader told you (WARNING ORDER) that your platoon would be conducting an air assault to seize a lodgment (FOB) in West Point within the next several days More to follow…..

36 MPCOA: T: Attrit 1x US PLT vic OBJ LINCOLN P: Prevent establishment of FOB DIABLO establish perimeter defense around PLAIN area. Orient systems on air assaulting forces. Withdraw once position is untenable TTPs -Use IED (improvised explosive devices) to disrupt movement -Disrupt movement across open areas, streets -Establish FPF vic Clinton Field Most Probable Course of Action

37 MDCOA: T: Attrit 1x US CO vic OBJ LINCOLN P: Prevent establishment of FOB DIABLO establish defense of Washington Hall w/ two platoons. Dangerous because it forces us to reorient and clear Wash Hall, Ike and Mac TTPs -Use IED to disrupt movement to Wash Hall -Force US forces to clear entire barracks area -Integrate SA- 7/14s -Defend in place Most Dangerous Course of Action
