Operation Killer had no sooner concluded than plans for Operation Ripper were set in motion.

All the objectives of Operation Ripper were now controlled by the 8th Army, which had been attacking continuously since 21 Feb. Still, with evidence mounting that the CCF had not abandoned plans for a major offensive, LtGen Ridgway wanted to keep the pressure on.

The tillage tool 30 is shown as a ripper having a subsoiler shank 130 connected by a bracket and break-away bolt assembly 131 to the aft end of a horizontal leg 132 of rectangular cross section.

 Battle Casualties and Medical Statistics: U.S. Army Experiences in the Korean War- Effects of Type of Operation and ...
The incidence of battle casualties, however, by particular operations and tactical actions, and of nonbattle admissions by type of operation, can often provide a basis for the projection of the combined effects of certain of these variables, which are important from both the tactical and logistical standpoints.
Casualty counts for these operations have been expanded to represent the total number hit: the killed in action plus all of the wounded in action, even those who were slightly wounded and who lost no days from duty and were CRO cases.
The static, nature of these operations is also reflected in the fact that less than 1.5 percent of all of the regimental time was spent either in defending (defense and withdrawal actions) against enemy attacks on the main line or in counterattacking (attack actions) to restore positions (table 27).
