052-192-4053 (SL3) - Supervise Minefield Breaching Operations

Standards: Supervised minefield breaching operations. Created a safe lane through the minefield so the maneuver force could maintain its momentum without causing mine casualties to personnel and equipment.

Conditions:
You are a soldier, given FM 3-34.2, a combat
engineer platoon, organic equipment,
explosives, and an operation order (OPORD)
with detailed obstacle intelligence (OBSTINTEL)
requiring your platoon to conduct breaching
operations.

Standards:
Supervised minefield breaching
operations. Created a safe lane through the
minefield so the maneuver force could
maintain its momentum without causing mine
casualties to personnel and equipment.

Performance
Steps

1.   Conduct troop-leading procedures.

a.
Receive the mission.

(1) 
Obtain the number of
breach lanes required.

(2) 
Obtain security,
suppression, obscuration, and
assault plans for the minefield
breach.

(3) 
Conduct a back brief to
the commander and request the
required resources.

b.
Issue the platoon warning
order (WO).

c.
Make a tentative plan.

(1) 
Use OBSTINTEL and the
mission analysis to develop a
scheme of reduction.

(2) 
Task-organize the
platoon.

(3) 
Develop subunit
instructions for the breaching,
marking, and security elements.

(4) 
Integrate maneuver unit
suppression, security, and
obscuration support into the plan.

d.
Initiate movement.

e.
Conduct a reconnaissance.

(1) 
Identify the minefield
size and composition.

(2) 
Identify breach
locations.

f. 
Complete the plan. 
Adjust the plan based on the
information obtained during
reconnaissance.

g.
Issue the platoon OPORD.

(1) 
Brief the
five-paragraph OPORD.

(2) 
Assign breaching,
marking, and security tasks to
subunits based on the scheme of
reduction.

h.
Supervise the plan.

(1) 
Supervise precombat
inspections.

(2) 
Supervise rehearsals.

2.   Supervise actions at the breach site.

Note. Breaching elements are normally located with the lead
elements of the maneuver units.
Usually, an engineer squad instead of
an entire platoon performs in-stride
breaches. In such cases, the platoon
sergeant should supervise the most
critical breach site, if possible.

a.
Coordinate with the
maneuver element for suppression,
security, and obscuration.

b. Ensure that the platoon breaches the number of lanes specified
in the OPORD.

Note.  Breach
lanes for personnel are one meter wide
and breach lanes for vehicles are four
meters wide.

c.
Ensure that the breach
lanes are free of mines.

d.
Ensure that the breach
lanes are marked according to FM
3-34.2.

e.
Notify the maneuver
commander when the breach lanes are
safe for traffic.
