Figure and a Supported Prone Behind Narrow Cover

21 (2) Supported Kneeling. When the prone position cannot be used because of the height

22 of the support, the supported kneeling position may be appropriate. The kneeling position

23 provides additional mobility over the prone position.

24 (a) The kneeling position allows shooting from all sides and from cover of varying

25 sizes. This position may be altered to maximize the use of cover or support by

26 assuming a variation of the kneeling position (high, medium, or low).

27 (b) In the kneeling position, the Marine must not telegraph his position behind the

28 cover with his knee. When shooting around the sides of cover, the Marine should

29 strive to keep his right knee in line with his left foot so as not to telegraph the

30 knee. See figure 6-24.
