This course focuses on urban combat operations. It will teach the unit to capitalize on the strategic, or tactical advantages gained by controlling a particular urban area, or to deny these advantages to the enemy.

These operations are conducted to defeat an enemy that may be mixed in with civilians. Therefore, the rules of engagement and use of combat power are more restrictive than in other conditions of combat.
