|English term or phrase: perimeter fire|
|Get across the front and lay down perimeter fire.|
...might be one possibility
...den Randbereich (die Umgrenzung/Umwehr/Peripherie) unter Beschuss nehmen...
might be another possibility
The BMVg dictionary lists
perimeter defense = Rundumverteidigung
perimeter = Randbereich or Umgrenzung (einer milit. Anlage) or Umwehr or Vorpostenlinie (um eine Stellung) or Peripherie
Unfortunately, though, it is silent on perimeter fire.
If your context supports it (and from what you quote, it would seem to), I'd probably use s.th. like "rundum feuern, um die Peripherie zu sichern"
