The tactic which makes offensive military operations the U.S. Army's strong suit.

Concept: Part of your unit shoots at the enemy with enough firepower to make them keep their heads down. This is known as suppressive fire or (in the movies) as covering fire. When you gain supressive fire, the other part of your unit moves in on them from a direction other than that which they are being shot from, and kills them.

You FIRE on the enemy to SUPPRESS their fires, and then MANEUVER on them to kill/destroy them/their equipment.
Fuck this World War I bullshit. Let's try some fire and maneuver on them!
