Although I do cover smaller formations in this column, more often I approach tactical situations from the point-of-view of the five-BG (bodyguard) team, since this is a widely used formation. I want to discuss the situations that may arise when the team leader of a 5-BG team decides to peel off one or more members of the team to deal with a specific tactical situation.

One of the real advantages of the 5-BG team is that if one member is peeled off, the team leader can just assume his position and thus retain a 4-BG box. The scenarios discussed are also based on the assumption that the team is operating without any additional personnel except the drivers, who will remain with the vehicles.
