Agent's likely targets are:
Nuclear and chemicals weapons and delivery means.
Headquarters and other C3 installations.
Road, rail, and air movement facilities.
Airfields and logistics facilities/centers.
Agents are usually well supplied. Equipment an agent would use ranges from simple burglar tools to
sophisticated cameras, listening devices, and long-range secure radio. Their weapons could be
silenced automatic weapons, sniper rifles, or explosives.
There are certain areas in which you would expect agents to operate. These are the areas where you
would find their most likely targets. They include division, corps, and Theater Army (TA) rear areas; as
well as in or near populous industrial areas.
Terrorists. In preparing for war and at the outbreak of hostilities, terrorists will take advantage of the
economic and politically stressed situation within the country. Terrorist organizations are groups whose
goals are to overthrow the government or the economic structure by force. They more than likely have
received financial aid from communist nations.
Terrorists' Size and Composition. They work alone or in small groups of three to eighteen members.
They are specially-trained and organized in underground elements that operate with military precision.
They conduct sabotage, armed attacks, and thefts of military supplies and equipment. They use
violence, speed, and surprise. They exploit any weakness.
Terrorists' targets are both people and facilities. They will be after civilians, U.S. and host nation
military officials, and their families. Targets are also commercial and military facilities.
Their weapons and equipment will vary. Most will have a radio, hand-held or other. Most will have
some sort of weapon. Weapons may be pistols, rifles, grenade launchers, and small explosives. Their
activities should be expected in the corps rear area and the TA's rear area.
Sympathizers. A large part of the population may be sympathetic to the enemy. They will be hard to
neutralize; their activities will be random and unpredictable. Their actions will include arson,
assassination, sabotage, also, theft of supplies and materials. Their activity could also extend to
political demonstrations. This could create hostile or nonhostile civil strife in the host country. This
activity should be closely monitored for a link to enemy sympathizers.
Sympathizers' Size and Composition. They work alone or in small groups. They also may be open to
recruitment by threat agents.
