Full Mission Profile


To quell the growing genocide and proliferation of child soldiers by the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) in Uganda, N.A.T.O. has authorized your special ops team for a direct action raid against a small group of LRA leaders.  Their meeting is taking place in an LRA camp in Uganda just over the border from Kenya.  The terrain is mountainous and thickly forested.   Intelligence forecasts security to be light.


You will travel a short distance over jungle terrain on foot.  Once at the camp, a sniper/spotter team will perch on the hill for primary target elimination and suppressive fire.  The rest of the team will plant explosives in camp.  Once targets have been eliminated and the camp has been blown, you will make a hasty exfil while planting claymores to cover your exit.

FMP Workout

Setup: (break into sniper/spotter team and explosives team)


5 rounds of:

  • 400 meter run with 25-35lb pack
  • 20 burpees

Sniper/Spotter Team:

10 minutes of:

  • lean and rest (push up position) or chair-sit

(You have to hold either lean and rest or chair-sit position for at least two minutes.  For example, you could lean and rest for the full 10 minutes, or switch between the exercises every two minutes.  You should not do more than five total sets.)

Penalty if form is broken: *See notes for additional info on penalties

  • 400 meter run
  • 10 burpees

Explosives Team:

10 minutes of:

  • 5 walking lunges (5 each leg = 10 total steps)
  • 7 kettlebell snatches each arm(35 lb)
  • 9 pushups


5 rounds of:

  • 400 meter run with 25-35lb pack
  • 5 kb snatches each arm or 20 pushups (sniper team does snatches, explosives team does pushups)

Everything should be done with a 25-35lb pack.

Both teams do infil and exfil.

The ideal terrain for this FMP would be in the hills, but if this is not possible due to kettle bell placement that is OK.  If you’re doing this on flat terrain make sure you push yourself that much harder to make up for the disadvantage.

*Breaking form on the sniper/observer 10 minute portion (knees touch ground on lean and rest or forced to stand up on chair-sit) represents your location becoming compromised.  The penalty will be to relocate the sniper pair after the ten minutes is over.  This will be added to your total time.
