Tactics guerrilla struggle. Afghan Mojahedin Instructions

Tactics guerrilla struggle. Afghan Mojahedin InstructionsThe main types of actions of the partisans:

The destruction of the personnel of the army and police in their places of deployment.
Diversions on roads and railways to impede their use by enemy forces.
The seizure or destruction of telephone lines (air and underground), central communications centers and radio stations.
Diversions against energy networks and power plants.
Defeat (destruction) of the central headquarters of the enemy.
Destruction or seizure of vehicles (military and conventional).
Destruction of cohesive and enemy agents.

Partisan movement features

If civilians provide for their needs by acquiring everything they need in the shops, or at the expense of their economy, then the life of the partisan is connected with the struggle. They provide all their needs at the expense of the enemy.

It must be well remembered that the unorganized mass in the struggle against military units suffered and will suffer defeat, so we need a strict organization of the actions of partisan groups.

Guerrilla groups with all their actions should consult among themselves, coordinate their actions, listen to the recommendations, advice of senior, experienced leaders.

In guerrilla warfare, it is necessary to use military personnel who served in various combat arms and have relevant specialties.

In the long guerrilla war, the guerrillas must defend the various actions of the people, otherwise they (these performances) will be defeated, and the guerrilla groups will not find support from the people and will also be defeated.

Guerrilla warfare will be successful if you constantly or temporarily hold the seized territory in your hands or control certain areas of the country.

The territory liberated or controlled by the partisans must be maintained until the enemy has concentrated considerable forces capable of causing serious losses to the partisans. We must remember that stubbornly holding on to this territory is never necessary, since the controlled territory is not constant under the laws of the guerrilla war.

Temporary protection of the liberated territory is carried out by a separate group of partisans, simultaneously in different areas of this territory. The number of these groups may be different and depends on the situation, the availability of their own forces and means. The actions of numerous groups to defend the liberated territory force the enemy to disperse their forces, and this is very important in the guerrilla war. In such conditions, the enemy is forced to disperse his forces, to act also in small units, to create numerous garrisons.

Separate groups of partisans who perform the tasks of temporary protection of the liberated territory do not enter into open battle with the enemy, do not conduct operations against the enemy. When the enemy advances, without engaging in battle, they depart, retaining their strength and resources.

The local population, which supports the actions of the partisans, should refrain from independent actions, because this can only lead to its defeat.

It is especially difficult for guerrillas to act during the winter period; therefore, it is necessary to prepare for the winter in advance, to create the necessary stocks of material and technical means, clothing, footwear, foodstuffs on the basis of providing all the personnel of the partisan formations.

When concentrating significant forces for action against the guerrilla group, the enemy will use (remove from permanent places of deployment) his small units and separate posts. These circumstances must be used by the partisans to meet and work with liaison officers, conduct reconnaissance, and eliminate the enemy’s intelligence and awareness network in the area of ​​operation, using the routes previously concealed by small enemy units and posts.

The use of specialists in the partisan struggle

In the guerrilla war, the actions of individual guerrilla groups should be effectively used by military personnel of various specialties, as well as employees of communications and roads, power plants and power grids.

It is very important to use military personnel with demining and mine-explosive training. They are needed for the preparation and conduct of sabotage actions against various objects.

Ordinary military personnel can be used as liaison between resistance groups and to participate in subversive activities.

Correspondents of newspapers and magazines, heads of printing houses carry out the main work on the preparation of leaflets, appeals, newspapers and other agitation and propaganda activities.

Material security and food

For each partisan group, material resources necessary for life and struggle must be procured (acquired). They are captured during battles by the enemy or, if possible, bought.

Each fighter of the partisan group must be provided with everything necessary: ​​uniforms, footwear, weapons and equipment, foodstuffs. This must always be remembered by the commanders (leaders) of the partisan groups.

Particular attention should be paid to providing warm clothing and blankets for the partisans operating in the mountains. All this must be harvested in advance.

Ways of obtaining such material means:

by withdrawal (capture) from the enemy and his supporters;
due to the help of supporters of the movement (activists) among the urban population (merchants, merchants, employees, etc.);
purchase from merchants (to the extent possible);
weapon and to get ammunition for it in battle, by attacking the enemy’s warehouses or by organizing theft from various storage sites.

You can also arm yourself at the expense of the weapons available to the population, and take them away from those who are not participating in the partisan struggle.

Weapons should be light, automatic and semi-automatic, as well as heavy (machine guns, rocket launchers, etc.).

At the beginning of the creation of wrestling groups, you can use hunting weapons, especially self-loading.

Explosives should be mined without a fight, in the area of ​​mining construction, where explosives are used. The explosives should be stored in a dry and warm place; they should not be laid on the ground, but should be made of dry trees. The air in the storage location of the explosive should be circulated. Be especially careful when handling fuses during storage.

Explosives can be extracted from mines and bombs. Most suitable are mines weighing from 3 to 4 kg. It’s necessary to use land mines and even aviation bombs weighing up to 250 kg. Lay the melted explosives into iron or glassware. With a fuse inserted, it will be a good bomb.

Catering services

The guerrillas, operating outside cities and towns, are deprived of the usual conditions of food, they are forced to purchase food or seize them from the enemy.

If necessary, food will have to be collected among dehkans, mill owners, shops and warehouses. In this case, in any case, friction with people is unacceptable, treatment with them must be such that they voluntarily help the partisans.

As a rule, one should avoid eating with the surrounding population. When catering, when eating, you need to be vigilant in order not to feed people with substandard food that the enemy can throw up.

Communication with the masses

The masses of the country are the advocates of the partisans. It is necessary to maintain constant communication with the people and actively defend them.

Guerrilla groups should establish contact with the local population and use it for the purpose of fighting, convincing people that the guerrillas are fighting for their release.

If the enemy will ask the population about the partisans, then people should respond: "I have not seen," "I have not heard," "I do not know." The support of the people is a guarantee of success for the partisans, this is an opposition to the enemy.

When cooperating with the masses, one must remember that among them there can be traitors, informants of the enemy, who can easily agree to “cooperate” with the partisans and at the same time work for the enemy, i.e. against the partisans. Therefore, it is necessary that active assistants of the guerrillas among the population know these people and be able to warn the guerrilla groups in time about the appearance of enemy units and patrols.

Work with the masses should be done in two ways. The first way is an open connection with the population, the second is a secret connection.

Secret communication (work) should include:

conducting an imperceptible observation of the accomplices of the enemy, by securing for this purpose activists from the population or specially trained individuals from among the partisans;
the introduction of his agent in the masses, as well as in the ranks of the enemy;
collection of data, documents and things;
covert (secret) placement of the wounded and sick among the population;
keeping secret the storage sites of weapons and guerrilla property;
actions of guerrilla agents and scouts in the guise of ordinary people wearing clothes and shoes characteristic of the area;
distribution of newspapers, leaflets, appeals among the people.

Open forms of communication:

gathering people (population) to clarify the tasks of the struggle, bringing them to your side;
assisting the wounded, placing them among the population, carrying out the burial of the dead;
preparation of obstacles on the roads, on the paths of movement of the enemy;
damage to the communication lines of the enemy;
preparing the population for joint actions with the partisans in repulsing the enemy, impeding his actions (blockages, etc.) and carrying out evacuation.
Particular attention in the recruitment of the partisan group at the expense of the population - supporters of the movement - should be paid to security. It is necessary to change the tactics of action. In preparation for repulsing the enemy, one should make the guerrilla group leave with some people from the local population and leave proxies. These people should be outwardly those who were, to do their usual things.

Tactics guerrilla groups

For successful actions, the guerrilla group must develop purposeful, simple tactical plans so that they can be achieved with significant success. For example, by force of two experienced demolition men you can blow up a store of ammunition or explosives. Major successes are achieved in small groups and in the destruction of bridges on highways. Acting with small forces, the enemy is dealt a tangible blow.

When planning operations, it is necessary to consider the following tactics of actions:

in the event of a sudden attack by the enemy in a large area, to provide for the retreat of groups with the organization of ambushes and repeated strikes;
conduct massive strikes on the enemy by significant forces of several groups from different directions;
at the beginning of the creation of partisan groups, attacks on soldiers and police, small units of the army and police should be carried out in order to get weapons and increase the power of the group;
in order to break the spirit of the enemy, his soldiers, the constant strikes of the partisans are necessary, and you can also use heavy weapons;
heavy weapons (cannons, mortars, heavy machine guns) should be used when attacking important objects, fortified enemy positions. It must be borne in mind here that in this case the enemy concentrates large forces on small areas and heavy artillery fire can inflict heavy losses on the enemy;
we must be afraid of head-on encounters with the enemy, using a convenient moment, break away from the enemy and occupy comfortable new positions for battle;
never for a long time to be in contact with the enemy. At most for one night. The guerrillas must move away unnoticed by the enemy and take a new vantage point or hide in hidden places (caches). When the enemies decide that the partisans are gone, they can again take up their old positions.

Movement of partisans

To carry out military operations, redeploy a partisan group to another area, the partisans are pursuing marches to pursue the enemy. The march must be carried out at an accelerated pace. Especially fast should be the movement in order to break away from the superior forces of the enemy and without loss go to a point (area), ensuring the security of the group.

The head of the route must be determined by the map (scheme) or by using guides who know the terrain on the route well. It is very important to use not only the main roads, but also the trails. Choosing a route, the head is obliged to determine the most advantageous and hidden paths of movement, the time required for the transition.

Sometimes the head when choosing a route of movement can consult with members of the group, listen to their opinions and suggestions.

When making a march, scouts must act in front of them, a visual connection is established with them. On the flanks and from the rear, the column is guarded by side and rear patrols.

When approaching a locality, reconnaissance is sent to it, the movement of the column through the locality is carried out only after reconnaissance gives a signal. When meeting with the enemy intelligence signals signals. The guerrilla group should bypass the settlement, using as guides of local residents. But the guides do not need to know where and where the group is going from.

If several groups are marching simultaneously, they should be connected to each other, if necessary (when meeting with the enemy) they should help each other.

Recreation organization

Guerrillas act (move) at night, and rest during the day. For recreation and location choose sheltered places, especially forests and forests, away from the enemy. When choosing a resting place (parking), it is necessary to take into account the conditions for observing the approaches in order to timely detect the enemy or his reconnaissance.

The location of the group should be guarded from all sides. For this, observers are exhibited. In addition to the guard, an immediate action group is appointed.

At night, it is advisable to organize the rest of several groups in one place.

Protection of the location should be organized by setting up pair of sentry (observers) at a distance between posts 50-100 m.

The most dangerous for the partisans is the air observation of the enemy (from helicopters and airplanes), especially in open areas, well viewed from the air. You can never stay in such a place for two nights in a row, since it can already be seen by the enemy. Never a place to spend the night can be a place where the group was during the day and vice versa. Guerrilla groups located in open areas should exercise the greatest caution and vigilance. Commanders are obliged to warn fighters about the prohibition of free movement in the area of ​​location, care outside it. For each partisan, you must choose a position in case of repelling an enemy attack.

Guerrilla groups located for recreation in one area should establish communication with each other and maintain it constantly.

Organization of the notification and communication

Various means are used to alert and communicate. The most reliable guerrilla in the fight against simple conventional signals. Conditional signals can be given in the following ways and means:

closing or opening a window (grille), using curtains of various colors (set for signaling);
suspension in the appointed place of ordinary objects, household equipment, etc. (carts, bicycles, etc.) or their removal from these places;
giving signals with smoke, fire, light of a lantern, unfolding (scattering) pieces of colored matter, shaking out clothes, etc.
The methods listed are very simple. Installed signals should be known to all members of the guerrilla group. Signals must be given so that the enemy can not unravel them.

Creating obstacles on the roads

To obstruct the movement of the enemy, it is necessary to create various obstacles, for this you can use the following methods:

bend trees from opposite sides of the road (paths) and tie them. It is better to use small trees for this, as thick trees will take a lot of time and considerable strength;
three-wire with one end tied to a tree, and the other to dig into the ground. The enemy will suspect that a mine or a mine has been installed; it takes time to establish that this is a false device;
to dig up the road with a ditch, the width of an outstretched arm. The enemy will be forced to clarify for what purpose it is done, what can be expected from the partisans and lose time;
plant bombs (mines, land mines) - this will cause the enemy to act cautiously, spend a lot of time searching for mines and clearing the road. True, the explosions on the roads (except for bridges, tunnels, galleries) will not give much effect.
The device of obstacles on the roads not only complicates the movement of the enemy, but also creates conditions for hitting him with fire during the period of eliminating obstacles.

When creating barriers, it is necessary to take into account that having met them, the enemy will look for other ways, using his guides for this.

Mining roads and vulnerabilities

Fragmentation and ball mines can be used most effectively, they are less capricious and most convenient to install.

They can be strengthened on a wooden stake, which is driven into (buried) in the ground to a depth of 0,5 m. The height of attachment of a mine to a stake is at the level of the armpit. One end of the cord is tied to the check (ring) of the mine, the other for some object. It is very important that the mine itself is masked with something, and the stretched cord is not very noticeable.
When installing such mines, special care must be taken when deploying and securing the cord.

It is convenient to use anti-tank mines, which are installed in the ground and well mask under it. All the work of installing one such mine will take no more than 10 minutes. Blasting it for a considerable time will delay the advance of the enemy. The only thing that must be borne in mind is that these mines may explode from the legs of their partisans during operations in the area.

The destruction of roads in vulnerable areas and intersections is of great importance for hindering the movement of the enemy. This task can also be performed by the local population. Although the enemy can also use this population to restore the destroyed road. But under all conditions the enemy will lose time, and this is beneficial for the partisans.

Vehicle outage

This work can be done as follows:

pour sand into the gas tank of the car or in the neck for pouring oil;
puncture the gas tank;
spoil the sensor showing water temperature and oil pressure.

Supporters of partisans who work for the enemy can accomplish a great benefit by carrying out the following operations unnoticed:

pouring water instead of acid into batteries;
do not top up the oil in the car;
trim fan belts;
release air from the tires;
not filling the radiator completely with water;
disengagement of the brakes from the hydraulic system, or the weakening of the steering clutch;
burning cars by laying lit paper under the hood of a car or oil rag in a gas tank, etc.

Ambush Transport Attacks

The ambush is organized as follows. One group settles down for actions on motor part of the car, another for actions behind or from boards. When approaching the car (bus), you need to suddenly attack the driver using a brass weapon (pistol or rifle). The wind weapon does not make noise, and this is very important, and does not kill the driver, since the lead charge does not have destructive power. After the driver and his assistant are defeated from such weapons, it is necessary to quickly get close to them and, using cold weapons, to complete the task, immediately seize the wheel. Drivers can be thrown away, they can put their weapons in the cab, keep their feet on the gas and quickly follow to the place where the main group is located.

In order to secure the ambush, the guerrilla group must provide surveillance of the road in order to promptly warn about the danger of the appearance of other machines.

After the seizure of the car, the partisans hide it in a cache. When confronted with the enemy, the ambush team leaves the ambush group.

The personnel of the ambush, sent from the center of the partisan group, is divided into the following subgroups:

Observations. This group can be disguised as local residents, activists (supporters) of the enemy. They must keep a constant eye on the road in front of and behind the ambush action area, and control the movement along the road for a considerable distance.

Attacks. It consists of a shooter (s) of a blowgun (pistol), a driver (s), a fighter (s) armed with a knife (dagger).

Cover. This subgroup has the task of blocking the road on the approaches to the ambush site, after passing the car (s) arranges obstacles in order to impede the actions of the enemy, delay its advancement and, if necessary, acting with fire, cover the retreat of the ambush group.

The actions of the partisans from the ambush against the enemy moving on the roads are very effective. But here you need to know that the enemy can set a trap, i.e. send on the road specially trained people with a brave commander. Such an enemy unit immediately enters the battle and has fierce resistance.

When organizing an ambush you need to create three groups. One group stops the enemy from the front, the second carries out an attack from the flank (flank) and the third - the reserve.

From the ambush, people stand out who quietly, under the guise of local residents, control the road, discover the enemy’s intelligence and do not give her the opportunity to find the ambush site. When an enemy column approaches, a powerful blow is inflicted by the frontal and flanking groups. The attack must be accompanied by arson of cars, armored personnel carriers and tanks.

The most convenient to arrange such ambushes on the roads in the highlands, especially in narrow places. Here a significant blow can be inflicted not only on the infantry, but also on the technique of the enemy. In the gorges and other narrowness of the enemy can be hit even from long distances.

The ambush commander identifies groups of fighters for the arson of a section of the road on which an ambush is planned. To do this, harvested straw, dry grass. An ambush attack must be accompanied by arson of the means harvested for this and dropping on the enemy. It is very important to capture or destroy the vehicle in front of you. He will block the road. The first car can be stopped like this: knock down a tree on the road and mine it.

An ambush battle must be sudden, short and powerful. After completing the task, the ambush is removed from the positions and returns to the base in covert ways.

Organization of raids (surprise attacks)

The guerrillas, as a rule, must strike suddenly at the enemy. To prepare such attacks, careful preliminary reconnaissance is needed, as much as possible a complete knowledge of the enemy’s composition, location, and positions.

The study of the enemy is carried out by observing from binoculars, sending them to the enemy or to the place of intelligence officers in the nearest place under the guise of workers, shepherds, etc. After the exploration, the targets are specified according to a scheme or map. The plan (scheme) of action is made. These plans (schemes) are provided by the commanders of the groups. They should be simple and understandable to every commander.

For action, the group is divided into three subgroups:

Subgroup attacks. It includes most of the forces and means.
Subgroup demolition men. It consists of a small number of specialists and maintenance fighters.
Reserve subgroup. It enters into battle when its reserves arrive at the enemy. The position of this group (location) should in no way be known to the enemy. With the departure of the main and second subgroups, the backup subgroup covers their departure.
The commander should not change his decision. Only backup specialists or partisans from the support unit can assist the backup group.

All subgroups openly occupy their starting position, organize observation and day rest.

At nightfall, all subgroups take up their positions in readiness for battle. The best moment to strike is 1-2 hours after dark.

The commander of the group at sunset (in the period of semi-darkness) can set the task for the partisans on the ground, show the most important goals of the enemy, ways out to them and set the time of the attack.

During the operation at the beginning of the night, the partisans have more time to rest.

Organization of attacks on objects

Leading preparations for the attack on an important object of the enemy, the commander is obliged to organize his reconnaissance. For this, it is most advisable to use one of the experienced partisans who need to prepare a good “legend” that facilitates entry into contact with the guard of the object.

The scout should examine: the location of the guard, what is armed. He must act so as not to arouse the suspicion of the guards. Curiosity can alert the enemy. Long to be in the location of the premises of the protection or near the object (on the object) is impossible.

Important information can be obtained from people working at the site or from guard soldiers who are frightened by guerrilla actions.

It is very important, in addition to the number of guards and their weapons, to know how security is organized, the place of storage of weapons and ammunition, the location of each post.

In addition to intelligence by penetrating an object, it is studied by observing from long distances in the daytime and at night. During such observation, it is possible to establish the location of the workshops and other objects of interest to the partisans (at night according to the illumination of these places), the behavior of sentries at posts, the order and time of changing them, the place of guard house, how sentries serve, whether it is watchful heat).

Intelligence data are plotted.

After studying the intelligence data, the group commander decides when, how and with what forces to attack the object. To accomplish this task, as a rule, three subgroups are created in the guerrilla group.

First - A subgroup of attacks on sentries, which is armed with light automatic or semi-automatic weapons, daggers and knives.

The second - the main. It is intended to act on the object itself, carries out explosions, arson, destruction. In accordance with the task, it is equipped with appropriate weapons and means of blasting.

The third - subgroup cover. It controls the roads leading to the object, the approaches to it, notifies other subgroups (commander) about the appearance of enemy reserves and the battle does not allow them to connect with the enemy operating on the object. This subgroup provides cover for the withdrawal of other groups. She is armed with automatic weapons and grenades.

The second is to take the required amount of electrical wire, ground one end of it, and attach a metal object or a stone to the other and throw it on the electric line.

The third - with the help of a heavy object to throw metal objects on overhead power cables (preferably wire).

Depending on the power and location of the transformer stations can be guarded by the enemy. In this case, they, as a rule, are enclosed with a barbed wire fence. At such a station, there is a military or police garrison, as well as personnel serving the station.

To attack the transformer station, the partisans are divided into 3 groups.

The first is the attack group.. It destroys wire barriers, conducts a battle with guards and bursts into the station, destroys telephone communications.
The second is a backup. Assists the first group in the destruction of transformers. It is better to destroy them by undermining. One transformer is enough 4 kg BB. Other items can be destroyed with a sledgehammer.
The third is a cover group.. He takes control of the road (path) to the station, delays the enemy that has appeared and ensures the withdrawal of the remaining groups.

Destruction of fuel depots

Most of the warehouses (bases) of fuel and lubricants are located near the settlements (in settlements), near the bus stations. Each warehouse is guarded, has facilities for management, staff and security, fuel storage (ground and underground).

For the destruction (destruction) of such warehouses, the partisans act in three groups.

Attack group removes guards and liquidates guards, interrupts the connection of the warehouse, isolates the administration and workers of the warehouse.
Cover group provides the actions of the first group by blocking the paths of the approach of the enemy, acting from ambushes, ensures the departure of other groups.
Group of explosives carries out the destruction of storage facilities (explosives and arson).

This group destroys storages (tanks) with fuel and lubricants by laying charges on the necks of underground fuel containers, under tanks (on the side of tanks) of ground storage, shelling tanks using anti-tank grenade launchers or small arms fire, burning fuel in tanks. The actions of this group must be carefully prepared, since the undermining and arson of the storages with fuel constitute a certain danger for the partisans.

Attack on airfields

Enemy air forces are the most dangerous enemy of the partisans. Destroying them raises the spirit of the fighters. For the operation against enemy airfields, the partisans are also divided into three groups.

The first group of - attacks. It eliminates security, destroys communications, searchlights.

The second group - destruction of airplanes and helicopters by exploding them, arson, destruction of navigation devices, installations and radio stations; destruction of warehouses, fuel, repair shops, etc. The main means of struggle are explosive charges.

The third group - cover. Its task is to ensure the operation of the first two groups, to block all possible ways of movement of the enemy’s reserves. It operates by ambush, undermining bridges, device blockages on the roads. This group covers the withdrawal of other forces.

Ways to store weapons and ammunition

Sometimes it is necessary to organize the temporary storage of weapons and ammunition for later use.

It is very important that the weapon does not rust and the place of its storage was not known to the enemy.

The best way to store is to bury the weapon in the ground.

To do this, all the metal parts of the weapon are oiled, the trunks are poured with paraffin, each weapon is wrapped in an oiled rag, then several trunks are wrapped in a large cloth packaging, tightly tied with a rope and placed in a wooden box. The slots and openings of the box are filled with wax or paraffin. The boxes are wrapped in aluminum foil and buried in the ground. The place for bury boxes should be dry, best in buildings, construction sites, where there is a cement coating.

Weapons should be checked every three months and lubricated again.

Ammunition is stored (by type) separately from each other. Lighting and flares are wrapped in newspapers and placed in wooden boxes, sprinkled with dry sawdust. Sawdust needs to be changed every month, as these munitions are very sensitive to moisture.

Rust removal from metal parts of weapons is made with 10% solution of perchloric acid and subsequent treatment with kerosene or gasoline.

Shelter among the population

The guerrillas are sometimes forced to live in cities and towns, and therefore need to ensure safe living. For this, friends of partisans, safe houses are used.

It is very important that every place where partisans can hide is reliable, provided with conditional alarms. This alarm should be simple and reliable, not conspicuous to the enemy, so that when it appears in the village it can be quickly and quietly used. For example, put or remove flowers, break a tree branch, remove a sheaf of straw, etc.

In order to gather group members in the locality, a safe place is chosen, and the guerrillas must be prepared to repel a possible attack. The house in which the partisans gather must be no different from others. When visiting such houses, the partisans, having knocked with a conditional knock on the door, must be ready to repel fire in case there is an ambush of the enemy.

When moving around the city, another locality, the partisans must exercise the utmost vigilance. It is necessary to walk in the clothes that are typical for the area. Coming out of the house, look around, less meet with the same people, be sure to check if there is any surveillance of you.

Sources and methods of obtaining intelligence

The timely receipt of various data about the enemy, his intentions is one of the most important tasks in organizing and conducting guerrilla warfare. To obtain (collect) information all possible sources should be used.

Sources of:

telephone and telegraph communication and other technical means of communication, mail;
population (employees of institutions, residents of villages, shepherds, car drivers, trade workers, etc.);
messengers (scouts) expelled from guerrilla groups;
print (newspapers, magazines and other publications);
various documents;
guerrilla agents embedded in various organs of the enemy, the army and the police living in cities and villages, people working in construction, factories, power plants, etc.

Ways to get information:

coded conversations on telephone and telegraph lines, coding of mail correspondence;
conditional phrases in periodicals of the press;
theft of documents, making copies of documents;
eavesdropping of conversations between employees of institutions, among workers of enterprises, people of villages, trade, markets, etc .;
monitoring the location of military units and subunits, police, etc.


With the growth of the partisan movement, the enemy will take all measures to suppress it. The police will be active here, sending their agents to partisan groups, towns, institutions, etc. Agents of the enemy are introduced and operate under a well-developed legend. The enemy will recruit his scammers, informers, contact men, using the worst elements of society: drug addicts, drunkards, vagrants, the unemployed and ideologically unstable people. Therefore, the guerrillas, people who cooperate with them, must exercise maximum vigilance, caution and resourcefulness.

With this in mind, guerrillas should never talk about their affairs, as well as on political and social issues in public places and among unfamiliar, untested people. Even in the premises, a conversation can be conducted only when all measures are taken to prevent interception.

      Yeah, we got ripped off, parasites ...
      Well, yes, this is unlikely to help them - the Russian army has been with the partisans since the time of A.P. Ermolova successfully fought. The main thing is to correctly use the experience gained during the Caucasian, Afghan and other wars.

        with the partisans the Russian army since the time of A.P. Ermolova successfully fought

        in general, in the history of wars we guerrilla more, because as a rule we defended rather than attacked. And now the time is completely different. Therefore, applying Yermolov’s actions today will not work, and even comparing completely different wars. Is it really not clear

      "Sputnik partisan"
      Publisher: Military Publishing House of the NPO of the USSR, Young Guard, OGIZ
      Year of publication: 1941-1943

      That's who had this learn
      The most important areas of struggle behind enemy lines were formulated in the order of the NPO of the USSR IV Stalin of September 5, 1942 No. 00189 "On the tasks of the partisan movement."
      The main tactical unit was a detachment, which usually consisted of several dozen people, and later - up to 200 or more soldiers. During the war, many detachments united in formations (brigades) of a number from several hundred to several thousand people. Light weapons prevailed in armaments (machine guns, light machine guns, rifles, carbines, grenades), but many detachments and formations had mortars and easel machine guns, and some had artillery.

      All persons who joined partisan formations took a partisan oath; strict military discipline was established in the detachments.

      The following elements can be distinguished in the tactics of partisan actions of the times of the Great Patriotic War:
      Sabotage, destruction of the enemy’s infrastructure in any form (rail war, destruction of communication lines, high-voltage lines, poisoning and destruction of water pipes, wells, etc.).
      Sabotage occupied a significant place in the activities of partisan formations. They represented a very effective way of disorganizing the enemy rear, inflicting losses and material damage to the enemy, without entering into a military conflict with him.
      Using special sabotage equipment, small groups of partisans and even loners could inflict significant damage on the enemy.
      In total, during the war years, Soviet partisans derailed about 18000 units, of which 15000 in 1943-1944.
      Intelligence activities, including undercover.
      Political activity and Bolshevik propaganda.
      Partisan formations carried out extensive political work among the population of the occupied territories.
      Combat assistance.
      Partisan formations provided combat assistance to the troops of the Workers 'and Peasants' Red Army.
      From the beginning of the Red Army offensive, they disrupted enemy troop transfers, disrupted their organized withdrawal and control. With the approach of the Red Army, they struck from the rear and helped break through the enemy’s defense, repel his counterattacks, encircle enemy groups, take control of settlements, and ensure open flanks of the advancing troops.
      The destruction of enemy manpower.
      The elimination of false partisans, collaborators and the heads of the Nazi administration.
      The restoration and preservation of elements of Soviet power in the occupied territories.
      Mobilization of the combat-ready population remaining in the occupied territory, and the unification of the remnants of the surrounded military units.

    As Peter I said about the Swedes? "Pupils will learn and thank their teachers." Al Qaeda and others like them have already learned and little by little they begin to "thank." Well, God help.

    I’m wondering what would happen if Saddam Hussein once adopted such tactics. He disbanded fanatically loyal troops home, with personal weapons, pre-prepared tactics of battle groups of 5-6 people, camouflaged weapons depots and provisions. Cities are pre-divided into sectors, all groups have different areas of responsibility. In the group are a sniper, machine gunner, grenade launcher, sapper, a couple of machine gunners. In the afternoon they are civilians, a night battle group.

    It is unclear only where does the Mujahideen? All these points apply to any partisan movement.

      I agree. I was especially surprised by such a pearl:
      For recreation and location, they choose sheltered places, especially forests and forests, away from the enemy.
      Is Afghanistan all covered in forests? Is there a taiga branch? Or am I missing something in my life?

          Tactics guerrilla struggle. Afghan Mojahedin Instructions
          This is the title of the article. And this instruction, according to the author, is for Afghan Mujahideen. Therefore, your presentation of "Sputnik Partizan" is unnecessary. By the way, did you read it? Extremely worthless instruction. It was written more likely for those who were hiding in the woods, rather than trying to fight.

    There is a rational grain, but this is not a technique for the Afghans. Rather, it is an adapted manual for the military and civilians. Yes, and "Sputnik Partizan" reminds me of something.
