In the vast majority of hostage rescue and other dynamic CQC operations, it is desirable to use multiple simultaneous attacks from different entry points to overload the target’s ability to react effectively. The more entry points the attackers can choose from, the better their chances. The teams entering the objective usually have to synchronize with snipers, negotiators, power technicians, perimeter guards, and others who assist from the outside. Medical personnel, investigators, and bomb experts may be prepped to enter the scene as soon as the initial attackers get control.

Close-quarters combat (CQC) or close-quarters battle (CQB) is a tactical concept that involves a physical confrontation between several combatants at very short range. It can take place between military units, and Terrorists, and in other similar scenarios. In warfare, it usually consists of small units or teams engaging the enemy with personal weapons within a distance up to 100 metres (110 yd), from proximity hand-to-hand combat to close-quarter target negotiation with (usually rapid-firing) firearms.

In the typical close combat scenario, the attackers try a very fast, violent takeover of a vehicle or structure controlled by the defenders, who usually have no easy way to withdraw. Because enemies, hostages/civilians, and fellow operators can be closely intermingled, close-quarters combat demands a rapid assault and a precise application of lethal force. The operators need great proficiency with their weapons, and the ability to make split-second decisions in order to minimize accidental casualties.

Simulator Development Division of the Indian Army has made lots of progress in the Mobile Marksmanship Training Simulators and Remote Ignition Systems in the recent past and all the personnel will be undergoing this advanced CQB training at OTA, Gaya.
