I want to train myself in order to become proficient in infantryman tasks, what should i do?
I'm almost finished reading FM7-8 so I'm taking some inspiration from it too.
Ofc a fundamental part of it is squad training but I dont have people to LARP with.
Anyway my list for now is:
-fitness(running, rucking, bodyweight, lift weights, sprints, stretching, I should also swim but I dont like it)
-orienteering(setting a path on a map and going out with a compass and following it successfully)
-marksmanship(knowing how to shoot properly both with irons and magnified)
-how to take care and operate of my gun (cleaning, clear jams, replace parts if needed etc)
-how to properly set up your gear(no rattle, what to put in ruck and what in chest rig etc)
traveling techniques(handrail, bearing, following isoline etc)
-crossing danger areas
-how to operate small radio
-communicate properly and not colloquially
-how to react to contact
-individual movement techniques
-how to set up a patrol base and how to set yourself in it
-how to dig a trench
-know how fire and maneuver works
-team members must always be close enough to see the team leader, tl must be close enough to see SL, so your squad doesn't get dispersed, distance depends on environment
