A term used by "Hannibal" Smith as a euphemism for a frontal assault. Used by The A-Team in nearly all engagements.
A "pincer" maneuver involves a force splitting into two and attacking the enemy from both sides, thus a "half pincer" logically means the force attacks the enemy from only one side.
Hannibal - "Now, the plan is your basic straight-on surprise hit-n-run attack. If anything goes sour, we split-up and rendezvous at the drop zone. Got it?"
BA - "This ain't much of a plan, Hannibal."
Hannibal - "Are you kidding? It's a classic! It's your half pincer movement inside a guarded perimeter. Tried and true, BA!"

St. Jackolas "man, check my badass half-pincer on Macaulay, Mrs. D!"
Mrs. Doubtfire "ooh very nice dear!"
Macaulay "please let me go home now."
