Acronym Help Please

#1
In the NATO sequence of orders what does DF's stand for in Situation-enemy forces?

Ive asked someone who has presented a powerpoint on it and he had no idea.

Any help would be much appreciated.

PS: I am expecting a lot of bull s**t answers to this but as long as somone gives me the real answer I'm not particularly fussed, the joys of asking for help on ARRSE.

Defensive Fires. It's referring to whether to expect Final Protective Fire (FPF) once you have destroyed the position, based on enemy equipment and prior experience.

Whilst you're not wrong your reference is a little dated. The Infantry Platoon has not been in Pamphlet 45 since 1999!
The copy I have here is from 1986. No idea how I ended up with it though. Hasn't even got any amendments. Still talks about the introduction of the sa80 the law and the warrior.

Spot on. Your also supposed to consider where it's likely the enemy have dialled in their guns (obvious approaches, dead ground etc.)
