Abstract : After taking its position, an antiaircraft-artillery battery first prepares to open fire should an aerial target suddenly appear. After this is completed, the engineering construction of the firing position and battery command post is undertaken in the following sequence: (1) antiaircraft gun emplacement, for which 15 manhours are allotted; (2) trenches for firing-platoon commanders; (3) installation for the battery commander, for which 25 manhours are allotted; (4) slit trenches for personnel; and (5) shelter for transport equipment. In case of tank or infantry attack slit trenches and foxholes for riflemen and antitank men are located around the battery. Tank mines are laid in the area most accessible to tank attack.
