Mobile Target - Soft
A category of weapon target in the Command model.
A Mobile Target can be any physical object on land that might be able to move. It can be a tractor trailer, a gantry, a car, a mobile home, a combat team -- even a single individual. "Soft" targets are those that have *not* been specifically reinforced by armor, concrete, or other construction methods and materials to withstand explosive blasts.
Command uses the weapon target types to determine if a particular weapon and sensor system can engage a particular target. For example, targets on land will often require different sensors and processing than targets on water. And, mobile targets will require terminal sensors and guidance to bring the warhead to the target.
Command distinguishes the weapon target types into:
Aircraft Helicopter Missile Submarine Surface Vessel Land Structure - Soft Land Structure - Hardened Mobile Target - Soft Mobile Target - Hardened
