Level I Activities
Level I activities will be accomplished by:
o Enemy controlled agents.
Enemy Controlled Agents. Agent networks in the target country support OPFOR unconventional
warfare operations. The current number of agents in NATO countries controlled directly or indirectly by
enemy intelligence and security organizations is well over 29,000. Their missions include espionage,
interdictions, and subversion.
Agents are trained to operate as political agitators, intelligence collectors, and saboteurs. The main
intelligence directorate recruits agents in the area of military facilities and supporting civilian industries,
airfields, special weapons depots, and tank dispersal centers, also, key lines of communication, and
