Step 2. Time period RSR is to be established for.

Inactive....................................................... 24 days

Attack of position

First day ................................ 1 day

Succeeding days................... 3 days

Fifth day ................................ 1 day

Protracted period................... 10 days

Period greater than 15 days .. 6 days

Total number of days............. 21 days

Time period for RSR................................... 45 days

Step 3. Type of ammunition = 4.2-inch mortar.

Step 4. Mission of designated force:

Inactive for 24 days

Attack of position 21 days

Step 5. Level of Operation:

Inactive = light

Attack of position = moderate

Table 2 shows how to compute required supply rates for an inactive situation.

To compute the rate for an inactive situation we take the protracted period rate for 4.2-inch mortar

with a level of operation of light and multiply it by .80:

.80 x 18 = 14.4 or 15 (there is no .4 round)

Table 3 shows how to compute attack of position.

Table 4 shows how to compute periods greater than 15 days.

Table 5 shows the total rate authorization.

Required supply rate = 31.577 rounded up = 32
