This Army Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures (ATTP) publication provides the doctrinal framework and tactical employment principles for the dismounted reconnaissance troop in the Infantry Brigade Combat Team's Reconnaissance Squadron. It is a companion to FM 3-21.10, The Infantry Rifle Company, and FM 3-20.971, Reconnaissance and Cavalry Troop, much of which applies to the dismounted reconnaissance troop and as such will not be repeated herein. This ATTP publication provides principles, tactics, techniques, and procedures for the employment of the dismounted reconnaissance troop throughout the spectrum of conflict.

In-depth coverage of major topics covered in FM 3-21.10, but limited in discussion here, includes preparation for war; troop-leading procedures; battle command and control; offensive and defensive operations; risk management and fratricide avoidance; operations in a chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear environment; Army health service support; media considerations; pattern analysis; and situation understanding.

This ATTP publication applies to the Active Army, the Army National Guard/Army National Guard of the U.S., and U.S. Army Reserve, unless otherwise stated.

This publication is specifically directed toward the dismounted reconnaissance troop commander, executive officer, first sergeant, subordinate leaders, and all supporting units. It focuses on the actions of the dismounted troop as related to the reconnaissance squadron, and the employment capabilities of the troop relative to its sister motorized reconnaissance troops. Specific emphasis is given to section and platoon operations when necessary. For additional section and platoon reconnaissance operations, see FM 3-20.98, Reconnaissance and Scout Platoon.

This publication also--
• Provides doctrinal guidance for commanders, staffs, and leaders of the organizations, and personnel responsible for planning, preparing, executing, and assessing operations of the dismounted reconnaissance troop. It is also useful for military instructors, evaluators, training and doctrine developers, and Infantry commanders, officers, and noncommissioned officers.
• Updates existing doctrine based on current operations and higher doctrinal concepts and terminology, lessons learned from recent combat experiences, and training at the Joint Readiness Training Center.
• Reflects and supports Army operations doctrine as covered in FM 3-0, Operations; FM 3-90, Tactics; FM 3-90.6, The Brigade Combat Team; FM 3-20.96, Reconnaissance and Cavalry Squadron; and FM 3-20.971, Reconnaissance and Cavalry Troop. It is not a stand-alone reference for reconnaissance operations. It is intended to be used in conjunction with these and other existing doctrinal resources.

The proponent for this publication is the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command. The preparing agency is the U.S. Army Maneuver Center of Excellence.
