TACSOP is an acronym commonly used by the U.S. military for TACtical Standing Operating Procedure. The TACSOP is essentially the "game-plan" that units follow when conducting tactical operations. Similar to sports team and "secret" plays, most units have a pre-determined default method for initiating attacks and solutions to problems that could arise.
