Feint

1. An offensive operation intended to draw the enemy's attention away from the area of the main attack, which induces the enemy to move his reserves or to shift his fire support in reaction to the feint. Feints must appear real; therefore, some contact with the enemy is required. Usually a limited-objective attack ranging in size from a raid to a supporting attack is conducted. (AFPM 3-8-1, PAM 3-071) 2. A type of attack used as a deception intended to draw the enemy’s attention away from the area of the main attack. This induces the enemy to move his reserves or to shift his fire support in reaction to the feint. (PAM 8-03)
