IDF Shooting TechniqueThe Israeli Defence Forces’ (IDF) Artillery Corps is set to use an innovative warfare technique over the next few weeks with altered security regulations, which will provide enhanced tank firepower capabilities.

Explaining about the new technique, the Armored Corps’ training department head lieutenant colonel Avi Marks said: "We took an old combat organisation, restricted by non-practical instructions, and turned it into an entirely new combat doctrine that will significantly influence future battlefields."

"As a result of cooperation within the Israeli Ground Forces, we were able to come up with a creative, outside-the-box idea that allows tanks to fire together in a row."

According to the change in security regulations, an entire company of tanks aligned in a straight line can attack targets simultaneously instead of the previous method of allowing only the first tank in the line to fire at the enemy.

The new shooting technique was also tested recently during the first operational test of the new regulations.

Armored Corps headquarters commander major Arieh Berger said: "The test was extremely successful and the new shooting technique will be implemented into future training and combat scenarios."

The line warfare technique will also be used under different combat scenarios in both urban and mountainous regions, while posed with numerous barriers, as well as anti-tank missiles.

According to the sources, some of the scenarios that the corps will prepare to use the technique include fighting in a region where the possibility for firing is higher.
