Modular DST Download!|
The classic DST described in FM 34-8 and FM 34-130 is of limited use in real field exercises. Often the DST is created as a Nod to Doctrine and thereafter kept in a guarded place in the Operations Center in the event that an Observer-Controller should ask to see it. The Modular DST eliminates the Big Overlay, and condenses the information for each critical decision onto a single card. Cards are placed where convenient around the map corresponding to where the staff anticipates making the decision.
The modular DST is not a universal replacement for the Classic DST, but is an additional staff tool.
