Abstract : In this paper the author surveys current Soviet open-source periodicals in order to determine what is being said about tactical intelligence. The research is limited to calendar year 1980 which was the most recent information available at the time of writing. Eight titles are chosen and the information is categorized and discussed under the general headings of: ground reconnaissance; the regimental intelligence officer; personnel training; and intelligence sources. The author attempts to reproduce the character and content of the Soviet writing, stating that the Soviets are using doctrine, World War II experience, and training exercises as basic vehicles for describing procedure, demands, focus, and missions in this field.
