MISSION GRAPHICS

Tactical task graphics are for use in course of action sketches, synchronization matrixes, and maneuver sketches. They do not replace any part of the operation order. The graphics should be scaled to fit the map scale and size of unit for which they are being used. The examples shown here are for illustration purposes only. Where practical the task graphic should connect with the decision graphic or unit graphic where the "Q" labeling field is (center of the bottom of the symbol).

Figure C-10 below shows that the 1st Brigade, 52d Infantry Division (Mechanized), is task-organized with two mechanized infantry battalions, an armor (tank) battalion, and an attack helicopter battalion. It has no deficiencies. Its task is to seize objective Tina. The 2d Brigade, 52d Infantry Division (Mechanized), is task-organized with two mechanized infantry battalions and two armor (tank) battalions. It has no deficiencies. Its task is to follow and support the first brigade.
