In addition to learning the technical skills that give a Soldier his Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) title, the Cobra Soldier also learns tactical skills. MOS-I, and MOS-T Soldier's will have the opportunity to train in several combat related tasks. This training includes (but is not limited to), Hand-to-Hand Combatives, Building Clearing, Night Operations, Weapons Emersion, and much, much more. This training is one of the final stages in the Soldier's transformation into an Army Combat Warrior.
