              SOF is for everything for facilitating a unique mission. You have direct action units like MARSOC and Rangers, but also have support like 160th, PJs, Combat Controllers, JTACS and shit but then you also have unique assets like 95th Civil Affairs, PsyOps nerds, and SFAB.

              SF is SF. They aren't for direct actionxlike Rangers they are for taking a single building in a complicated situation and usually are just training foreign SF.

        Platoon mainly - One Squad lays down a heavy "base of fire" on the Objefctive area, another Squad is the "support Squad" (i.e. they lay another "base of fire" or they even actively partake in the raid w/ the last Squad), and the last Squad (or Squads - depending on PLT TO&E) is the "Main Raiding Squad" (i.e. the guys that infiltrate The Objective Area and steal shit - since most Raids are mainly done for quickly hitting and getting the fuck outta there).

        Since a Raid is an offensive operation you need to ensure that you have 3 of your guys to 1 of the enemy (e.g. IF a enemy unit securing a depot for ammunition and arms is known to be 2 squads big (however big a squad is) then you'd need 2 Platoons (1 Platoon having 3 Squads Each)).

          thanks, but isn't there a point when it gets so big that it's not a raid anymore but a normal offensive operation?

            Well some larger scale raids could just mostly be done to "probe an area" for a response from OPFOR - e.g. how The Germans ALWAYS would do probing "Raids" and "Attacks" before an actual "Main Offensive" mainly so they can get a feel as to where to start suppressing with CAS as well as other means to "break" the Enemy's Front.

            GENERALLY Raids of The 75th Ranger Regiment HAS to be large because they don't know if there's a QRF (Quick Reaction Force - Enemy Mechanized Infantry) in the area that could LITERALLY mop the floor with 75th Rangers OR if they could wind up in another "Hot Night in Mogadishu" (e.g. "Blackhawk Down" or "Operation Gothic Serpent"). Also I recall that The SAS also does "Squadron" tactics (e.g. the "Sabre Squadron" which is part of The SAS Regiment).

          3:1 offensive rule is "minimum force" and 3:1 is a heuristic and not a hard rule. Also depending on the type of assault you might want 11:1 or greater as a minimum force, because a well executed mission has fewer casualties for the attacker.

          Also in addition to raw numbers you want intel, ISR, air support, artillery support, logistical and medical support, blocking, screening, and flank protecting units and the whole shebang. Only Russia is retarded enough to crash human waves of conscripts over and over again.

            >I conceived of an idea to have a Guerrilla Unit move behind enemy lines dressed as Civilian Refugees
            As long as they change into uniform before they attack it is not a warcrime. However they may be considered spies of caputred during infiltration (not in uniform).

            I mean that's generally the idea - infil as refugees, get geared up and attack when "night sets" (since Night Attacks are more ideally suited given the advances in NVGs and all - SURE the enemy could drop flares on the area but then it'd piss the civvies off at night).

      Fair point regarding battalion sized assaults. But correct me where I'm wrong here: An MEU is typically a single sized infantry battalion, along with aviation and logistics battalions, and any escort ships. This single battalion will train for and execute anything from amphibous raids, urban sniper, evac, humanitarian aid, TRAP, and a host of other bullshit that drops in their lap during a 6 month deployment.

      You see what I'm getting at? Not shitting on the concept, but you see the difference in mission set between these and the 75th?

        The MEUSOC is not just a concept. The USMC has been using the MEUSOC frame work since before Operation Sharp Edge in 1990. Operation Sharp Edge is a good example of the MEUSOC BLT's capabilities combined with the ability to stand off shore on US Navy shipping.
        During the civil war in Liberia Africa Joint Special Operations Command at the request of the US State Department and the US Ambassador to Liberia Africa tasked the 26th MEU which was embarked aboard naval shipping on the way to the Mediterranean Sea to prepare to reinforce the US Marine Security Guard Detachment at the Liberian embassy.
        The fleet stood over the horizon off the coast of Liberia out of sight until the US ambassador request the Battalion Landing Team. The Marine Security Guard detachment prepared the embassy grounds for the waves of CH-46 helicopters that began bringing in the BLT . Cobra gunships and Harrier jump jets provided overhead cover.
        Ch 46's also evacuated foreign nationals from the US embassy. The CH46's carried civilians from the embassy to the LHA . The civilians were processed on the hangar deck and then loaded onto CH53's which carried them to the civilian airfield in Sierra Leone Africa.Operation Sharp Edge was the largest evacuation of civilians and noncombatants since Saigon Vietnam.

          Because the rangers have people ready to go within hours to anywhere in the world and train special mission sets.

          Regular GRF is ready to doorkick a contingency or war, but are not necessarily practiced on the same mission sets as the rangers are. You want both regular infantry and rangers.

    Technically The US Army Rangers are "Special Operations" and not "Special Forces" - i.e. they don't focus entirely on "Strategic Affairs", they're more "Tactical" and generally are used as Light Infantry.

    Largely because before they reconstituted the regiment they did a lot of commando shit in World War II and LRRP shit after that.

    Now they're SOCOM's fire brigade.

      Honestly The Rangers are necessary - even now that the GWOT Era is (kind of mind you though I'm putting it in the context of Afghanistan) almost kinda over (emphasis on kinda). Still gotta have SOCOM units - especially when things heat up in The Pacific either w/ China or N. Korea.

    Why doesn’t the US have like an airborne highly mobile “helicopter/plane” mobile corp like marines of the air? An aggressive marine like element that can flank the enemy nations forces with the same idea of one of those three major offensives in Iraq? 10’s of thousands of airborne slightly advanced light infantry landing behind the main forces to encircle from the other side with ATGM’s, MANPADS and drones.

    Guerillas in the woods have done well in Ukraine, why not poop those boys in the air and drop them on the east side of a country while regular forces roll in from the west?

      Well conventional Airborne Doctrine generally states that such units can only survive for 48 hours while the "front line" starts moving towards them. SO technically for your idea to work you'd have to figure out a way to increase your hypothetical unit's survival time "behind the lines" - and ideally in such a large concentration (assuming you're going that route).

        They would need extra air support, there would need to be air superiority/SEAD completed and there would need to be a lot of them. Part of this is how cool it seems but with the V-280 valor maybe it’s becoming realistic

          Well, I hope this idea does indeed gain traction. With my idea though it would mainly have to involve heavy collaboration w/ Intelligence (since it requires things like forging documents and MORE OR LESS general "Clandestine" Intel Gathering, Sabotage, and ultimately motivating other members w/in the Salient to join the Guerrilla Light Infantry in the attack alongside Conventional Forces).

          OH and in my idea also - for the offense (i.e. your side has a salient in Enemy territory) - the Guerrilla Light Infantry and other "Volunteers" in the Salient can aid in "Pushing Out" (and "Linking Up" with other Guerrilla Light Infantry & Volunteer Units).

            How will these people be sustained.

              Well, since mainly they're meant to live in Urban Areas - they'll mainly be regularly "snuck in" not only just food (which they will have on themselves) but also pro Guerrilla Elements in The Urban Salient (e.g. think a Clandestine "food kitchen" or even having restaurants in the area portioning out some food for the Guerrillas).

              I KNOW anon it sounds almost like "muh live off the land" but generally that's the most realistic (though initially again they're gonna have to rely on a good deal of rations which still allows for plausible deniability given the fact that they're dressed - and blend in - as Refugees).

              Mind you anon - this thought was put in my proverbial "mental garbage bin" until it was brought back out to be looked at and scrutinized here on PrepHole PrepHole today.

                Additionally, you need to ask the question as the distance and amount of resources you need to maintain this operation from the outside increases: "What if I just committed these offensive/sustainment/intelligence resources to the main front? Would that have been more helpful?"

              Oh and for Command and Control/Communication? Think something akin to "Hotline Miami" (granted with a bit of a "Modern" Twist - since in that game it's heavily implied to have used a combination of landlines and "coded messages").

      Also, when I was younger I conceived of an idea to have a Guerrilla Unit move behind enemy lines dressed as Civilian Refugees - akin to what Nestor Makhno did w/ his "Ukrainian Black Army" MAINLY for "Salient Closing Operations" (i.e. BASICALLY priming a Salient of a Front to be "liquidated" via a combination of deployable Guerrilla Light Infantry supported by Conventional Forces once the Objective Area has been thoroughly "primed").

        As long as they change into uniform before they attack it is not a warcrime. However they may be considered spies of caputred during infiltration (not in uniform).

    I’m a QM/PBO and I don’t care about SOF, I do not have any sort of tabs and I don’t need one. All of the SF communities kneel in my presence? Why? Because if they don’t i won’t sign off on any of their supplies.

    Quartermasters run the army. A special solider might be able to kill enemies quickly but they do not have the prowess or technical aptitude to provide a logistics supply chain adequate enough to summon a monument to capitalism behind enemy lines, a fully functional McDonald’s restaurant ran out of the back of a 10 Ton
