TASK
CONDUCT A ROUTE RECON (5-4-0401)
CONDITION
THE SQUAD/SECTION IS TASKED TO
PERFORM A ROUTE RECONNAISSANCE
OVER A SPECIFIED ROUTE. THE AREA IS
SECURE BUT ENEMY CONTACT WITH
SQUAD-SIZE OR SMALLER ELEMENTS IS
POSSIBLE. SOME ITERATIONS SHOULD
NOT BE DONE IN MOPP-4
STANDARDS
THE SQUAD/SECTION USE THE CORRECT
SYMBOLS TO PREPARE AND SUBMIT AN
OVERLAY IDENTIFYING ALL OBSTACLES,
OBSTRUCTIONS, TERRAING FEATURES,
CRITICAL MEASURMENTS, DIMENSIONS
AND CLASSIFICATIONS ARE ACCURATE
WITHIN PLUS OR MINUS 10 PERCENT. THE
SQUAD COMPLETES THE ECONNAISSANCE
NLT THE TIME SPECIFIED IN THE OPORD
TASK STEPS AND STANDARDS
 THE SQUAD LEADER PLANS THE ROUTE
 RECON
 a) PERFORMS A MAP ORIENTATION TO ID THE
    ROUTE AND START/STOP POINTS
 b) ESTABLISHES THE RECON OBJECTIVES
    (OBSTACLE LOCATION, TRAFFICABILITY
    AND WATER POINTS).
 c) REQUESTS A SECURITY TEAM TO SUPPORT
    THE RECON IN THE EVENT OF ENEMY CONTACT
    (2 PERSONELL PER SQUAD)
 d) PLANS FOR A DOUBLE FLOW OF TRACKED VEHICLES
    (UNLESS OTHERWISE DIRECTED BY THE COMMANDER).
TASK STEPS AND STANDARDS
 THE LEADER PREPARES AN OVERLAY OF THE
 SPECIFIED ROUTE
 a) DRAWS THE ROUTE TO SCALE ON TH OVERLAY. SHOWS THE
    LIMIT OF SECTOR SYMBOLS (ONE EACH AT THE START AND
    END POINTS).
 b) PLOTS AT LEAST 2 GRID REFERENCE POINTS AND A GRID OR
    MAGNETIC NORTH ARROW.
 c) PREPARES THE TITLE BLCK. AS A MINIMUM, INCLUDES NAME,
    SSN, UNIT, MAP SHEET, SERIES, SCALE AND ANY REMARKS
TASK STEPS AND STANDARDS
 LEADER BRIEFS THE TEAM ON THE
 MISSION USING 5-PARAGRAPH FORMAT
 a) ROUTE TO RECONNOITER
 b) RECON METHOD (HASTY OR DELIBERATE)
 c) RECON OBJECTIVES
 d) TIME AND DISTANCE FACTORS
 e) NOISE AND LIGHT DISCIPLINE
 f) RADIO COMMUNICATIONS (PROGRESS REPORTS, ASSISTANCE,
    COMMO CHECKS)
 g) ACTIONS THE SECURITY TEAM TAKES AT HALTS AND UPON
    ENEMY CONTACT.
TASK STEPS AND STANDARDS
 LEADER INSPECTS
 a) COMPASSES AND TAPE MEASURES


 b) REQUIRED DA FORMS, (1248, 1249, 1251,1252,AND 1711R)

 c) WEAPONS, LBE, MASKS, CANTEENS, AMMO

 d) RADIO (SECURE MODE AND COMMO CHECK)
TASK STEPS AND STANDARDS
  THE TEAM RECONS THE ROUTE TAKING
  REQUIRED MEASUREMENTS AND
  RECORDING INFO ALONG THE ROUTE
 a) IDENTIFIES THE TRAVELED WAY WIDTH ALONG THE
  ROUTE
  1. SINGLE FLOW: 5.5M TO 7.3M WHEEL, 6M TO 8M TRACK
  2. DOUBLE FLOW: AT LEAST 7.3M WHEEL, 8M TRACK
  3. IN THE ABSENCE OF GUIDANCE, RECONS FOR DOUBLE
     FLOW TRACK TRAFFIC.
QUESTION:

Q: WHAT DETERMINES THE TRAVELED WAY WIDTH




A: THE NARROWEST POINT ON THE ROUTE

b) ESTABLISHES THE ROUTE TYPE
    1) X – ALL WEATHER
    2) Y – LIMITED, ALL WEATHER
    3) Z - FAIR WEATHER ROUTE.
 c) ESTABLISHES THE MILITARY LOAD CLASSIFICATION
   (MLC) OF THE ROUTE IAW THE LOWEST LOAD CLASS OF
   ANY SECTION OF THE ROUTE
 d) RECORDS TERRAIN FEATURES (THAT AFFECT TRAFFIC
    FLOW) ALONG THE ROUTE ON THE OVERLAY.
MLC

MILITARY LOAD CLASSIFICATION (MLC) IS
USUALY EITHER THE LOWEST BRIDGE
CLASSIFICATION ON THE ROUTE OR THE WORST
STRETCH OF ROAD SURFACE. WHICHEVER IS
LOWER
MEASURING CURVES

FORMULA R= C2 + M

IN AREAS WHERE MINES ARE SUSPECTED OFF OF
THE ROADWAY, ‘M’ CAN BE DETERMINED BY
TYING STRING OR TWINE TO THE MIDPOINT OF ‘C’
THEN SUSPENDING IT OUT OVER THE OFF-ROAD
AREA.
MEASURING SLOPES
SLOPES CAN BE MEASURED MANY WAYS. THE
BEST FIELD EXPEDIENT METHOD IS THE LINE OF
SIGHT PACING METHOD.

 e) IDENTIFIES ANY CRITICAL POINTS ON THE ROUTE FOR
    DETAILED EXPLANATION ON DA FORM 1711-R
 f) RECORDS ALL MEASUREMENTS IN METERS
TASK STEPS AND STANDARDS
 LEADER REVIEWS THE FOVERLAY
 AND FILLS OUT REQUIRED FORMS
 a) COMPLETES THE OVERLAY WITH ALL APPROPRIATE.
    SYMBOLS RECORDED AT THEIR GEOGRAPHICAL LOC.
 b) ENSURES THE ROUTE CLASSIFICATION FORMULA IS
    PRESENT (LOCATED OVER THE TITLE BLOCK).
 c) FILLS OUT THE FORMS AS REQUIRED BY THE CDR.
 d) RECORDS MEASURMENTS ON THE OVERLAY IN METERS.
TASK STEPS AND STANDARDS
 LEADER BRIEFS HIS HIGHER ON THE
 RECON MISSION AD SUBMITS THE
 OVERLAY AND FORMS TO THE CDR
 WITHIN THE TIME PRESCRIBED IN
 THE OPORD.
