Army Doctrine Reference Publication (ADRP) 3-09, Fires, is one of the ADRPs released under Doctrine 2015. ADRP 3-09 expands on the foundations and principles found in ADP 3-09. This Army doctrine for fires builds on the collective knowledge and experience gained through recent operations and numerous exercises. It is rooted in time-tested principles and fundamentals, while accommodating new technologies.

ADRP 3-09 makes numerous changes from Field Manuals (FM) 3-01 and 3-09. The most significant change is that air and missile defense (AMD) is moved from the protection warfighting function into the fires warfighting function. AMD contributes to the area air defense plan (AADP) by assisting the protection cell with the planning and development of the defended assets list (DAL). Execution of tasks related to fires which are part of the DAL will be performed by the fires warfighting function.

Additional changes in ADRP 3-09, from FM 3-01 and FM 3-09, include the field artillery (FA) mission statement is updated to read: The mission of the Field Artillery is to destroy, defeat, or disrupt the enemy with integrated fires to enable maneuver commanders to dominate in unified land operations.

ADRP 3-09 remains generally consistent with FM 3-01 and FM 3-09, on key topics while adopting updated terminology and concepts as necessary. These topics include the discussion of fires in support of unified land operations, decisive action and the operational framework.

ADRP 3-09 contains three chapters:

Chapter 1 describes the fires warfighting function while incorporating the roles, core competencies, critical capabilities, characteristics, and principals of fires, as well as fires in support of unified land operations, and decisive action. Additionally the chapter discusses fires in relation to other warfighting functions, joint interdependency, and the employment of fires.

Chapter 2 describes the various fires organizations, and lists key fires personnel with their duties and responsibilities.

Chapter 3 describes the fires process in greater detail, describes its interaction with the operations process, through targeting and fires planning.

Based on current doctrinal changes, certain terms have been added, modified, or rescinded for purposes of this manual. The glossary contains acronyms and defined terms.

The principal audience for Army doctrine reference publication (ADRP) 3-09 is commanders, leaders, and staff
of the fires warfighting function. Commanders and staff who must employ fires within their operations should also use this doctrinal manual. This ADRP is not only based on the Army’s capstone doctrine, Army doctrine publication (ADP) 3-0 and ADRP 3-0, but is also grounded in joint doctrine such as found in Joint Publication (JP) 3-0, JP 3-01, JP 3-09, and JP 3-60. Trainers and educators throughout the Army will also use this manual. The scope of this publication is broad in its focus in order to deal with fires as a complete entity. It gives equal treatment to the diverse assets that are designated as fires resources. The successful employment of fires depends on the integration and synchronization of all forms of fires within all the warfighting functions. This manual forms the foundation for training and Army education curricula on fires. This publication describes the fires warfighting function in terms of its major components, functions, and required products, and describes how fires are employed in terms of the operations process.

Commanders, staffs, and subordinates ensure their decisions and actions comply with applicable United States (U.S.), international, and, in some cases, host-nation laws and regulations. Commanders at all levels ensure their Soldiers operate in accordance with the law of war and the rules of engagement. (See field manual [FM] 27-10.)
