Figure 5-12. Area of Operation for the TCF with no Fire Areas
Allied TCF/HN forces may be employed in support of rear operations. The RAOC/RTOC will provide
liaison with LE and the CMO section. The RAOC/RTOC will follow set agreements. He will ensure that
the coordination and support of the allied TCF follows theater requirements.
The RAOC/RTOC, based on the assessment of the LE, may recommend repositioning of units after an
attack. This will be to enhance the security of the base or base cluster. The RAOC/RTOC will inform
the ROC and SPO/SOTI of the support required to return the bases to operation.
The RAOC/RTOC must ensure it has properly coordinated the planning of the employment of a TCF in
the rear operations. Priorities for routes must: be identified. They must be controlled by the
appropriate transportation agency. The MP should assist the move of the TCF into position. They will
brief the TCF commander on the current situation. Logistic bases must be notified that priority of
support has been changed to the TCF where applicable. Attack helicopters may be used as a
maneuver force or for augmentation with MP. A forward rearming and refueling point (FARRP) may be
required. The RAOC/RTOC must exercise close coordination with the SPO/SOTI so control of support
assets for the committed TCF is efficient.
