Appendix L

Sample Precombat Checks

The tables in this appendix provide sample precombat checks (PCCs) for Paladin mission and survivability preparations a battery will execute. These checklists may be used in a variety of situations and are not intended to replace unit TSOPs or other system(s) designed to track and report the status/progress of a unit. By incorporating some version of these sample PCCs into operations, the commander can more efficiently communicate exactly what must be done. For example, it is easier to direct the Paladin section to complete the SCATMINE PCC than to individually specify all the subtasks required.
