With the rebirth of special warfare in the last few years, the role of the individual soldier and of squad-sized units has been re-emphasized. Most guerilla-type fighting has been, is presently, and will most likely continue occurring in remote areas of the world. The terrain encountered may be tropical grasslands and canopy areas, or rugged mountains, inland waterways, swamps, mud flats and rice paddies. Other adverse terrain conditions are frequently encountered and must be crossed to accomplish the mission of the unit.
