List of military tactics

This page contains a list of military tactics. The meaning of the phrase is context sensitive, has varied over time, like the difference between "strategy" and "tactics". Exploiting prevailing weather – the tactical use of weather as a force multiplier has influenced many important battles throughout history, such as the Battle of Waterloo. Fire attacks – reconnaissance by fire is used by apprehensive soldiers when they suspect the enemy is nearby. Force concentration – the practice of concentrating a military force against a portion of an enemy force. Night combat – combat that takes place at night, it requires more preparation than combat during daylight and can provide significant tactical advantages and disadvantages to both the attacker and defender. Reconnaissance – a mission to obtain information by visual observation or other detection methods, about the activities and resources of the enemy or potential enemy, or about the meteorologic, hydrographic, or geographic characteristics of a particular area.

Smoke screening - the practice of creating clouds of smoke positioned to provide concealment, allowing military forces to advance or retreat across open terrain without coming under direct fire from the enemy. Penetration of the center: This involves the creation of a gap in the enemy line and its exploitation. Two ways of accomplishing this are separating enemy forces and using a reserve to exploit the gap that forms between them or having fast, elite forces smash at a specific point in the enemy line and, while reserves and holding forces hold your opponent and for the enemy's command or base. Attack from a defensive position: Establishing a strong defensive position from which to defend and attack your opponent. However, the defensive can result in ultimate defeat. Single envelopment: A strong flank beating its opponent opposite and, with the aid of holding attacks, attack an opponent in the rear. Sometimes, the establishment of a strong, hidden force behind a weak flank will prevent your opponent from carrying out their own single envelopment.

Double envelopment: Both flanks defeat their opponent opposite and launch a rear attack on the enemy center. Its most famous use was Hannibal's tactical masterpiece, the Battle of Cannae and was used by the Wehrmacht on the Eastern Front of World War II. Attack in oblique order: This involves placing your flanks in a slanted fashion or giving a vast part of your force to a single flank; the latter can be disastrous, due to the imbalance of force. Feigned retreat: Having a frontal force fake a retreat, drawing the opponent in pursuit and launching an assault with strong force held in reserve. However, a feigned retreat may devolve into a real one, such as in the Battle of Grunwald. Indirect approach: Having a minority of your force demonstrate in front of your opponent while the majority of your force advance from a hidden area and attack the enemy in the rear or flank. Crossing the "T": a classic naval maneuver which maximizes one side's offensive firepower while minimizing that of the opposing force.

Deception and misdirection Deception: Sun Tzu said that all war is based on deception back in the 4th century BC. Diversionary attacks, decoys. Perfidy: Combatants tend to have assumptions and ideas of rules and fair practices in combat, but the ones who raise surrender flags to lure their attackers in the open, or who act as stretcher bearers to deceive their targets, tend to be disliked. False flag: An ancient ruse de guerre – in the days of sail, it was permissible for a warship to fly the flag of an enemy power, so long as it properly hoisted its true colors before attacking. Wearing enemy uniforms and using enemy equipment to infiltrate or achieve surprise is permissible though they can be punished as spies if caught behind enemy lines. Demoralization: A process in psychological warfare that can encourage them to retreat, surrender, or defect rather than defeating them in combat. Disinformation Military camouflage Stealth technology Feint or diversionary attacks Electronic warfare Electronic countermeasures Electronic counter-countermeasures Radio silence – while traveling, a fleet will refrain from communicating by radio to avoid detection by enemy forces.
