Close quarters combat techniques are warfare types of styles whereby small teams engage an enemy using personal weapons within a short range of up to thirty meters. Close Quarters Combat Techniques may also be defined as a situation of a short duration and of high intensity conflict mostly displayed by rapid violence at a really close range. When you find yourself amidst close quarter’s combat circumstances, the best move to defend yourself is fast take-down technique. By using this technique, you put down your attacker easier and fast hence you can escape or engage with other enemies.
The focus is to actually finish all offensive acts just before the attacked party gets a chance to react. So as to achieve the surprise, the attacker uses stealth movements and also light discipline to be as near as possible to a target enabling them to engage any enemy unnoticed. Some teams or units opt to using sniper rifles for any initial shots to handle sentries or even dogs. Any attack is done when least expected considering fatigue, usual sleep periods, or other factors which reduce the target’s alertness. Diversion is also considered as an important element when carrying out surprise. Staged emergencies like mock auto accident, a fire, or an explosion next to the crisis scene can prove useful in diverting the alertness of any target from an assaulting element. Explosive breaching or diversionary equipments like flash bang, smoke or a gas grenade may be used to distract and confuse a target. Negotiators are a good source of information about their cover not to be blown or discovered.
This is surely another factor to consider. The unit should be able to attack and take up counterattacks. The defenders may lead to a failure of the attack through factors such as detonating bombs. Speed could prove effective when a mission is carried using well-organized tactics like several entrance points or explosive breaching.
