A contemporary motti could feature retrograding, covering forces sowing improvised explosive devices (IEDs) along roads to either block key routes with disabled vehicles, or to detonate on key command and control vehicles.
They consisted of a direct A/S screen and a "long-range escort force" sailing with the convoy, a Cruiser Covering Force for close cover, and a Battle Fleet for distant cover and support.
The Cruiser Covering Force was designated Cruiser Squadron 1 (CS 1).
(129) The Cruiser Covering Force would leave Seydisfjord on the morning of D+5 to reach its covering area at latitude 73 degrees N, longitude 4 degrees E at about noon on D+6.
(179) The Cruiser Covering Force overtook Convoy PQ17 and sailed parallel to it some forty miles north, so as to avoid German detection.
(210) Some 350 miles away from the Cruiser Covering Force, the Battle Fleet was in a hovering position southwest of Spitsbergen.
Bletchley had found no evidence the Germans had detected the heavy covering force. Another piece of evidence that Tirpitz was not out to sea was that the Germans did not warn their U-boats to stay clear of the convoy.
In Narva there were not enough reservists in order to man covering forces, on the other hand, in Petseri (Pecory) County (south-eastern Estonia) there were too many of them.
A second drawback was the weakness of the Latvian covering forces. Thus in case of the enemy's overwhelming attack the divisions being mobilized inland could be engaged in the combat before their mobilization was completed and thus upset the appointed organization.
(86) Active defence was set as a fundamental principle for the border covering forces. The troops were to keep the area needed for an advance in order to transfer the military activities to the enemy's territory on the first opportunity.
The Japanese feared this weapon greatly; time and again, suicide squads of "human bullets" assailed the flame tanks directly, only to be shot down by covering forces or scorched by the main weapon.
Concentrating on those solids whose structural elements contain conjugated pi-electron systems, they offer chapters covering forces and structures; purification of materials, crystal growth, and preparation of thin films; impurities and defects; molecular and lattice dynamics in organic molecular crystals; electron excited states, excitons, and energy transfer; structure and dynamics of triplet states; organic semiconductors; organic crystals of high conductivity; organic superconductors; electroluminescence and the pholtovoltaic effect; and molecular electronics.
