Areas of natural cover and concealment can make identification of
equipment a difficult task; however, you should sight down through tree
stands and adjacent low-lying shrubs and bushes to search for and identify
objects and equipment.
A close study of image B, Figure 1-35, reveals no
signs of activity except tracks in fields next to the wooded area. You have
to search hard to find the bridging equipment described in sketch A.

c. You can encounter fairly good use of existing cover; however, few
poorly camouflaged vehicles can reveal an entire unit. A study of Figure 1-
36 reveals two trucks with trailers loaded with lumber (Annotation 1), two
2-1/2-ton trucks with 1/2-ton trailers (Annotation 2), an earth auger
(Annotation 3), road grader (Annotation 4), 2-1/2-ton trucks (Annotation 5),
common vehicle (Annotation 6) 2-1/2-ton truck with 1/2-ton trailer
(Annotation 7), and 1/2-ton pickup truck (Annotation 8).
