It is to be noted that reconnaissance activities, as a raid, search and ambush in the classical format are difficult to implement in modern conditions of non-linear combat actions with asymmetric and hybrid features. Experience shows that the methods are mostly used by commandos staging a special operation in a deep rear, e.g. a raid, together with the weapons of combat platforms that are different in characteristics and engagement spheres. A raid, search and ambush acquire clear combat features by the structure and contents when reconnaissance data becomes a secondary task.
