Figure Supported Sitting with Rifle on Support

15 (4) Supported Standing. The supported standing position provides greater mobility

16 than the other positions and usually provides greater observation of the enemy. The

17 supported standing position is effectively used behind high cover (e.g., window, over a

18 wall) or narrow cover (e.g., tree, telephone pole).

19 (a) To assume the supported standing position, the Marine leans his body forward

20 or against support to stabilize the weapon and the position.

21 (b) Support the position by placing the handguards, the forearm, or the magazine

22 on or against support. In addition, the position (e.g., the side of the body) may

23 rest against support (see figure 6-29).
