Phase Line

A line used for control and coordination of military operations. It is usually a recognizable terrain feature extending across the zone of action. Units normally report crossing PLs, but do not halt unless specifically directed. PLs often are used to prescribe the timing of delay operations. (AFPM 3-8-1, PAM 3-071(S-2008), PAM 8-03)
