Question Close Order Drill

How do you say "Close Order Drill" in Spanish. (Particularly the ones done by the US Marine Corps)

¿Ejercicios de formación cerrada?
(Oxford gives "formación cerrada" for "in close order", but I am not sure of the usage with "drill".)

(And given that I never did a military service in Spain, as I was "exceso de cupo" my Spanish military vocabulary is rather limited and rather lame...)

Creo que sí, pero quería ver si alguien sabía mejor que yo... (algún militar, o un marine de verdad que esté estudiando español mientras le da vueltas al rifle...)
