Principles of Military Strategy & Tactics

It is a part of...

Many military strategists have attempted to encapsulate a successful strategy in a set of principles. Some strategists assert that adhering to the fundamental principles guarantees victory while others claim war is unpredictable and the general must be flexible in formulating a strategy. These underlying principles of strategy have survived relatively unscathed as the technology of warfare has developed. Strategy (and tactics) must constantly evolve in response to technological advances. A successful strategy from one era tends to remain in favor long after new developments in military weaponry and matériel have rendered it obsolete.

Concentration of effort Principle

Concentration of effort Principle, is a fighting force's edge. Once an aim is identified, earmark enough resources to achieve it and focus them on the task. An old maxim has it that he who defends everything defends nothing; and it is also true that he who attacks everywhere will capture nothing.

Deception Principle

Deception Principle, is the act of allowing an opponent to only react to the wrong circumstances. Diversionary attacks, feints, decoys: There are thousands of tricks that have successfully used, and still have a role in the future.

Destruction of enemy forces Principle

Destruction of enemy forces Principle states that you will achieve your other war aims (strategic and tactical) most efficiently if you reduce your enemy's forces. Remember that you both have limited resources to deploy in order to achieve your own aims and to prevent the enemy from achieving hers. The destruction of these resources tips the balance against you.

Economy of force Principle

Economy of force Principle, the ability to use all forces effectively.

A common principle of war; the attentive commander knows that his troops, equipment and supplies must be husbanded and used carefully, only if there is a good chance of success. Of course, the terrible conundrum is that success only comes when one exposes their forces to risk...

  • Allocate minimum essential combat power to secondary efforts

Exploiting prevailing weather Principle

Exploiting prevailing weather Principle. Although there is not actual weather in eve, there is politics and morale. Exploit these traits of your enemy as if they are shifting weather. There will be times when the political and morale weather of your enemy shifts in your favor.

Exploiting night Principle

Exploiting night Principle Although night directly does not really effective eve in a battle, it does effect your enemy if most of his troops are off line and asleep for their particular timezone. Here is your chance to strike. Keep track of your enemies online and offline times. Have several corp members help keep out in order to cover multiple time zones.

False flag Principle

False flag Principle, Wearing enemy uniforms and using enemy equipment to infiltrate or achieve surprise.

Although often simply called a spy. The false flag principle is far more then a spy. It is a group of military units whom join their enemies not to become apart of them, but to instead infiltrate and ambush them from within. Often times, only striking when the "moment is right" because once they are discovered they might only have moments before they are kicked out and banned from rejoining.

The idea of "Moment is right" is basically doing some research before hand figuring out what of great value can be destroyed in a short period of time. Then simply putting themselves into place, and awaiting for the right moment to strike!

One objective of this tactic is to simply kill and pod a enemy CEO from within. Thus knocking the CEO down from their high horse of being untouchable. As well as placing a sense of mistrust in his regular members, which in turn further deteriorates CEO - Corp member relations. Without trust its difficult to run an alliance or corporation.

This is often very tense thing to do, as if you say the wrong things you can potentially give away your team too soon.

Certain personality traits are necessary to be effective. They will differ depending on the set objective. Self control is an important personality trait for the team of infiltrators.

Force dispersal Principle

Force dispersal principle, Force dispersal is the practice of spreading out your Military Force. It is used to minimize the effects of collateral damage, such as from AoE weapons and increases the number of AoE rounds needed to neutralize or destroy a Military force.

Force dispersal may also be used in urban guerrilla warfare and as a tactic by militias to combat military intelligence instead of collateral damage. In this use, breaking up into covert cells is meant to make it harder to eliminate the whole organization at once, and to reduce the damage when portions of it are discovered.

Force protection Principle

Force protection principle, Another component is the principle of Security. A military unit or formation must always have sentries or reconnaissance deployed, specialized weapons against specific attacks should be carefully sited and available, even if halted for only a short period, a defensive measures should be taken, etc.

Initiative Principle

Initiative Principle, or simply "[Carpe Diem]" translated as "seize the day"

Maintenance of reserves Principle

Maintenance of reserves principle, or The maintenance of a reserve force allows a tactician to exploit new opportunities, or react quickly to reverses and unexpected developments. Typically, most commanders keep about a quarter of the forces back in reserve for this function. Often, in some hard-fought campaigns, victory went to the last commander who still had reserves to use.

Maintenance of Morale Principle

Maintenance of Morale Principle, or creating adequate quantity, and quality of supplies, equipment, safety, quality of Military Leadership, quality of military training, motivated military volunteers.

This principle teaches belief in the values the military represents and fights for. Promotes the loyalty toward the Corporate leadership the military fights on behalf of. Promotes a sense of pride, and belonging by its members.

Keeps their overall battle wins/losses ratio high.

Creating a sense of camaraderie between members of the unit, fostered through shared experiences, and hardships.

Military Camouflage Principle

Objectives Principle

Objectives Principle, Tactics should be directed to achieving a particular outcome such as a successful disengagement from an advancing enemy, or merely causing a greater proportional loss to the enemy than to your own force (attrition). Once an aim is identified, time, resources and effort are expended to achieve it; therefore, these are wasted if the aim is frequently changed.

  • Direct every military operation towards a clearly defined, decisive, and attainable objective.
