FM 6-70 Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures for
M109A6 HOWITZER (PALADIN) OPERATIONS


PREFACE

 

This Coordinating Draft of FM 6-70 is released by the USAFAS to provide developmental doctrine and tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP) for the 3X6 Paladin howitzer battalion, battery, platoon, section and where applicable, supports crew techniques and procedures. This FM (Draft) supplements the doctrinal concepts outlined in FM 6-50 or the FM 6-20 series and supercedes these doctrinal concepts where Paladin advanced technology permits.

The FM 6-70(Draft) ties the doctrinal approach with the training strategies outlined in the associated ARTEP 6-037-30-MTP. The document is intended to serve as a useful tool in preparation for employing the PALADIN system using a number of techniques and procedures. It is not meant to inhibit the development of new and innovative TTPs by soldiers in the field. Comments and suggestions are encouraged.
