MCRP 5-2A, MARINE CORPS REFERENCE PUBLICATION: OPERATIONAL TERMS AND GRAPHICS (30 SEP 1997) [JOINTLY KNOWN AS FM 101-5-1/MCRP 5-2A]
MCRP 5-2A, MARINE CORPS REFERENCE PUBLICATION: OPERATIONAL TERMS AND GRAPHICS (30 SEP 1997) [JOINTLY KNOWN AS FM 101-5-1/MCRP 5-2A]., This manual sets forth procedures for the United States Army and the United States Marine Corps in the use of land-based warfighting symbology. An extensive set of symbols for the Air Force and Navy is found in Military Standard 2525A (MIL-STD-2525A). The manual is a dictionary of operational terms and military graphics. It is designed for commanders and staffs from company through corps to communicate instructions to subordinate units.
This manual describes symbols for use in the force domain (maneuver command and control) but does not supersede the military standards that describe symbols for use in the engagement domain ("radar" tracking , evaluation, engagement, or engagement system directing). Military standards established for air defense engagement and systems control and aircraft "heads-up" displays are to be used. When information is transferred from an engagement domain system to a force domain command and control system, it will be automatically or manually converted to the force domain symbols in this publication.
