To what extent does this course of action
conform to the Principle of Maneuver?
Answer: There is a weakness in COA BLUE-BRIGADE-COA4-1-1-MT with respect to maneuver because none of the COA's actions are rapid movement actions.
Reference: FM 100-5 pg 2-5, KF 115.1, KF 115.2, 115.3 - Maneuver is the movement of forces in relation to the enemy to gain positional advantage. A course of action with few rapid movement actions may not be effectively employing the principle of maneuver.
Suggested corrective action: For COA BLUE-BRIGADE-COA4-1-1-MT plan for and coordinate the use of rapid movement among the COA's assigned maneuver units.
