Mountain Eagle Exercises I, III, IV, and V

NOTE: HQ USAREUR calls the operations conducted in Bosnia "Peace Support Operations." According to current doctrine, these operations are Stability and Support Operations (SASO). The Army formerly used the term Military Operations Other Than War (MOOTW) until the Chief of Staff of the Army directed that the force use more specific terminology. This document uses the doctrinal term, Stability and Support Operations (SASO). The editorial staff at CALL has revised this compendium to reflect the current doctrinal terminology.

The CALL Lessons Learned Division, CTC Branch, collects these trends from the respective Observer/Controller (O/C) teams and compiles the results. Organized by the Battlefield Operating System (BOS), the trends reflect both positive performance and needs emphasis based on quarterly assessment.

Each trend is annotated according to Final Draft, TRADOC Pam 11-9, Blueprint of the Battlefield, dated 10 September 1993. The trends are numbered sequentially for ease of reference, and are not in any priority order. A statement of the problem or positive performance is provided with supporting observations and suggested TTPs.


1. The 10 September 1993 version of TRADOC Pam 11-9 updated the TA.5 Intelligence BOS: TA.5.1, Develop Tactical Intelligence Requirements. The addition of the new TA.5.1 resulted in an incremental increase in the second digit of the subsequent numbers in the Intelligence BOS.


- The old TA.5.1.2, Collect Target Information
is now TA.5.2.2, Collect Target Information

- The old TA.5.3.1, Prepare Reports on Target Development
is now TA.5.4.1, Prepare Reports on Target Development

Beginning with all FY 96 CTC Trends publications, the Intelligence BOS numbering follows the new BOS numbers. Keep this numbering system in mind as an audit trail when reviewing CTC Trends published prior to FY96.

2. O/Cs covering various BOS sometimes submit very similar trends. If a listed trend is followed by this annotation (+), then that trend was duplicated and the narrative will be a composite of the two original narratives. In each case, if the O/Cs mention a relevant technique or procedure, it will be included in the narrative.


TREND 6: Logistics units' defensive operations (++) (TA.

In this example, the trend listed under the Mobility/Survivability BOS, code number, was documented two times (++).
