“Japanese Raider Teams envisaged the destruction of US guns, tanks, headquarters buildings, and other
installations as the primary missions of their rear-raiding parties. The composition and size of a Raider Team unit
depended upon the nature of its mission. However, a three- to five-man group, under a competent noncom, leading
private, or first-class private, was considered desirable under average circumstances. The Japanese felt that a
number of such groups (five three-man groups or three five-man groups, for example) under a suitable officer or
noncom should be used to raid deep into hostile territory, utilizing gaps in hostile dispositions. The Raider Teams
would be utilized to launch simultaneous attacks against several such objectives as airfields, tank assembly points,
and other suitable tactics.

In most instances a three-man group was considered sufficient for an attack on a headquarters, a signal station, an
assembly point, or a fuel or ammunition dump. Only explosives which could be carried easily were to be used, and a
large quantity of incendiaries was recommended for the attacks on the dumps.”
