7Performance Steps1. Ensure the Soldiers you are signaling can see you.2.Perform the visual signals for combat formations, battle drills, and movement techniques as follows:a. Perform formation signals coil and herringbone:
8Raise one arm above the head and rotate it in a small circle. CoilRaise one arm above the head and rotate it in a small circle.
9HerringboneExtend the arms parallel to the ground. Bend the arms until the forearms are perpendicular. Repeat.
10Performance Steps (cont.) b. Contact left, contact right, action right, action left, action front (right, left, or rear), air attack, and nuclear, biological, or chemical attack:
11CONTACT LEFTExtend the LEFT arm parallel to the ground, bend the arm until the forearm is perpendicular. Repeat.CONTACT RIGHTExtend your RIGHT arm parallel to the ground, bend the arm until the forearm is perpendicular. Repeat.
12Action LeftAction RightExtend both arms parallel. Raise your RIGHT arm until it is overhead. Repeat.Extend both arms parallel. Raise your LEFT arm until it is overhead. Repeat.
13Action Front(LEFT, RIGHT OR REAR), FIGHT ON FOOT, OR ASSAULT FIRE (DISMOUNTED TROOPS).
14AIR ATTACKBend the arms with forearms at 45-degree angle. The forearms are crossed. Repeat.
26Two or three movements up- ward with the open hand, palm uppermost. MOUNTTwo or three movements up-ward with the open hand, palmuppermost.
27Disregard Previous Command or As You Were Raise both arms andcross wrists above thehead, palms to the front.
28I Do Not UnderstandExtend both arms horizontally to the sides and then bend your arms at the elbow so that your hands move across your face, one above the other. Palms should face out.
29Performance Steps (cont.) d. Perform Vehicle Signals. (cont.)9. Start engine / prepare to move10. Halt / stop11. Increase speed12. Advance13. Open up / close up14. (make a) right or left turn15. Slow down16. Move in reverse
30Start Engine, or Prepare to Move DAYNIGHTSimulate cranking of the engines by moving the arm, with the fist, in a circular motion at waist level.Move a light to describe a horizontal figure 8 in a vertical plane in front of the body.
31HALT or STOPRaise the hand upward to the full extent of the arm, palm to the front. Hold that position until the signal is understood.NIGHTDAYMove a light horizontally back and forth several times across the path of approaching traffic to stop vehicles. Use the same signal to stop engines.
32Increase Speed DAY NIGHT Move a light vertically several times in front of the body.DAYNIGHTRaise the fist to shoulder level; thrust the fist upward the full extent of the arm and back to shoulder level (rapidly) several times.
34OPEN UPExtend the arms overhead, palms inward, then slowly lower arms to a horizontal position.
35CLOSE UPExtend both arms parallel to the ground, palms up, then move the arms upward and inward towards the head.
36Right or Left TurnDAYNIGHTExtend the arm horizontally to side,palm outward.Rotate a light to describe a circle 12 to18 inches in diameter in the direction ofthe turn.
37Slow DownDAYExtend the arm horizontallysideward, palm to the front;wave the arm slightly downwardseveral times. keeping the armstraight. Do not move arm abovehorizontal.NIGHTHold a light at shoulder level; blinkit several times toward the vehicle.
38(For Stationary Vehicles) Move in Reverse(For Stationary Vehicles)Hold a light at shoulder level; blink it several times toward the vehicle.DAYNIGHTFace the vehicle(s) being signaled, raise the hands to shoulder level, palms to the front. Move hands forward and backward.
39Performance Steps (cont.) d. Perform Vehicle Signals. (cont.)17. Close distance between vehicles and stop18. Stop engines19. Dismount20. Neutral steer21. Stop22. Button up / unbutton23. Message Acknowledged
40Close Distance Between Vehicles and Stop Face the vehicle(s) being signaled. Extend the forearms to the front, palms in-ward and separated (width of the shoulders). Bring the palms together as thevehicle(s) approaches. The vehicle(s) must stop when the palms come together.
41Stop EnginesExtend the arm parallel toground, hand open, andmove the arm across thebody, in a throat-cutting action.
42DismountExtend the arms, make two or three movements up and down, hands open towards ground.
43Neutral Steer(Track Vehicles)Cross the wrists at thethroat; point the indexfinger in the direction of steer.Make a fist ot the other hand.
44STOP Clasp the hands together, palms facing, at chin level. (Alternate signal to stop tracked vehicles)Clasp the hands together,palms facing, at chin level.
45Button Up or UnbuttonFor BUTTON UP, place both hands, one on top of the other, palms down, ontop of the helmet. The arms are back and in same plane as the body.For UNBUTTON, give BUTTON UP signal, then separate the hands,Moving them to each side in a slicing motion; repeat.
46Message AcknowledgedHold the fist out withthumb up.
47Performance Steps (cont.) 3. Perform Flag SignalsSingle signal flagMountDismountDismount & AssaultAssemble / CloseMove OutNuclear, Biological or Chemical Hazard Present.
48Use a Single Signal Flag *When alone, flag colors have these meaning.**In poor visibility, you can use colored chemical lights or flashlights with colored filters in place of flags.
55Performance Measures (cont.) Note: When used alone flag colors have the following meaning:1. Red-Danger or enemy in sight2. Green-All clear, ready or understood3. Yellow-Disregard or vehicle out of action
58Performance Measures(cont.) 1. Executed proper formation signals. 2. Executed proper drill signals. 3. Executed proper movement technique signals.4. Executed proper signals to control vehicle drivers and crews. 5. Executed proper flag signals.Evaluation Preparation:SETUP: At the test site, provide a set of vehicle-signaling flags and flashlight. From the signals shown in the task, pick 10 to test. BRIEF SOLDIER: Tell the Soldier you will give the ten signals, and he must correctly execute each one
