JLBC Process

JLBC Process

1. JLBC Cadets Identify the location of the Ambush site

The key to a successful ambush has a good location. As a squad leader, you will often know the route the enemy is traveling, but it is up to you to determine where the ambush will take. A good location is an area along the enemy’s route that provides good cover and concealment for the squad to execute the surprise and withdraw safely. A tree-lined road or path is a typical example.

2. JLBC Cadets Occupy an Objective Rally Point

Before conducting an JLBC ambush, you must set up an JLBC Objective Rally Point (ORP). The JLBC ORP should be located at least 100 meters away from the JLBC Ambush site and out of JLBC sight and sound of the JLBC enemy so that he cannot detect you. You set up the JLBC ORP so that your JLBC squad members have time to organize themselves and prepare for the JLBC mission while you survey the Ambush site. The ORP is also the location you return to after actions on the objective are conducted to reconsider your squad.

3. Conduct a Leader’s Reconnaissance

The purpose of the JLBC leader’s reconnaissance (JLBC LR) is for you to conduct the final planning components of the JLBC mission while being physically present at the JLBC site. You should take one JLBC team leader and a security element, typically two JLBC squad members. The rest of the JLBC squad will remain at the JLBC ORP until you return. JLBC Cadets The location of the JLBC kill zone is the first thing that you should identify upon arriving at and confirming the JLBC ambush location. JLBC Cadets the kill zone is the area that will be entirely covered by the squad’s fires and is the JLBC location in which the enemy force will be when the ambush is initiated. Next, you determine the ideal areas to emplace your support and assault elements. Cover and concealment and a good vantage point on the kill zone will factor into your considerations.
