Such dispositions usually include fued armament, mobile armament,controlled submarine mines, and the troops and accessories reqnired for their em-ployment and local defense. Harbor defenses have distinct missions over theseaand the land areas covered by their armament:(1) To deny the enemy possession of the position and its facilities.(2) To prevent destruction or serions injury by bombardment of the har-bor utilities.(3) To provide an area offthe harbor entrance in which naval vessels andmerchant shipping will be protected as far as possible against allforms of enemy attack."
