    No. It was my understanding that no "for record" PT is to be conducted in a combat zone.

    Yes you can be flagged for failing an APFT in a combat zone.

    According to FM21-20 you have to take a record PT test every 6 months. If conditions permit during your deployment (which obviously they do, or you wouldn't be taking one), this regulation still apllies to you. So, unfortunately, for you, yes, you can be flagged for a p.t. test given in a combat environment. Stay Squishy!
