This manual's primary concept is to suggest methods of training forms the following two perspectives: Employment of US weapons and the defense against threat nuclear weapons; and War-gaming techniques which nuclear controllers use when conducting training. This manual specifically addresses nuclear training and describes how corps and division (div) commanders and their staffs can train their commands for nuclear operations. Brigade (bde) commanders can also use it to extract training requirements for their brigades; controllers can use it to provide feedback to players on the effects of both friendly and threat nuclear burst. This manual reflects current thoughts and augments existing doctrinal and training literature.

Washington DC: Department of the Army, 1973. First Edition thus, later (1975) printing. Wraps. Format is approximately 8.25 inches by 11 inches. Three-hole punched and staplebound. 80 pages.

This manual supersedes TM 3-210, 3 December 1967, including all changes. Its contents address Introduction to Fallout Prediction, Detailed Fallout Prediction, Simplified Fallout Predictions, Fallout Prediction for Atomic Demolition Munitions, Friendly Nuclear Strike Warning Message, and References. This manual provides guidance in the preparation of detailed and simplified fallout predictions to commanders of all echelons within the Army and provides procedural guidance for those persons operating the Chemical, Biological, and Radiological Element (CBRE). The material in this manual is applicable to nuclear warfare conditions. This manual is in consonance with the international standardization agreements (STANAG) referenced within this manual. The need for a fallout prediction system stems form the large-area radiological contamination hazard that can develop from fallout-producing nuclear detonations. This large-area hazard is capable of producing mass casualties is its presence is not detected or if commanders at all echelons do not understand its effects and take action to minimize these effects. Thus, fallout has a considerable impact on military planning and operations.

Glossary. Reproducible Forms. This we understand was the Army’s last and most comprehensive word, on how troops would confront the effects of nuclear weapons on the battlefield. IT was also jointly issued with the Marine Corps since their troops could also be expected to be on the ground in a 'post-detonation' operational environment. Much of the emphasis is on establishing and communicating the spatial extent of fallout from adversarial nuclear weapons explosions, and understanding its impact on battlefield operations. This really is the definitive work on the subject at the end of the Twentieth Century. Included also is AREA PREDICTOR, RADIOLOGICAL FALLOUT, ABC-M5A2, a 24”X39” flexible translucent overlay sheet with stenciled templates for first-order fallout area delineation on US Army maps; its use is fully described in the FM 3-3-1 manual.

Special forces may perform functions including airborne operations, counterinsurgency, counterterrorism, foreign internal defense, covert operations, direct action, hostage rescue, high-value targets/manhunting, intelligence operations, mobility operations, and unconventional warfare.
