Chapter 5 – Cover, Concealment, and Camouflage

Chapter 5

Cover, Concealment, and Camouflage

If the enemy can see you and you are within range of his weapon system, he can engage and possibly kill you. So, you must be concealed from enemy observation and have cover from enemy fire. When the terrain does not provide natural cover and concealment, you must prepare your cover and use natural and man-made materials to camouflage yourself, your equipment, and your position. This chapter provides guidance on the preparation and use of cover, concealment, and camouflage, except for fighting positions, which are covered in Chapter 6.
