Medical support. Sanitary losses in defensive action can be a little smaller than in approach. This results from the fact that the staff of a regiment is placed is more dispersed and can be in in advance prepared engineering constructions.
Transportation of appliances by defense preparation, as a rule, carries out the regimental back the automobile divisions from a separate battalion of material security directly in battalions and on firing positions of artillery, passing the company of material security.
With the participation of a battalion of the second echelon of a regiment in counterattack wounded and patients from its divisions are evacuated in a medical aid station of the battalion, or directly in a medical aid station of a regiment or in the closest medical aid station of a battalion of the first echelon.
