Abstract:

This study is the result of increasing interest in reserve components and their training programs. The study team focused on armor crew training in the reserve components. Data for the publication article was gathered through visits in the United States to the Pentagon, Armor Center at Ft. Knox. Ky, MASSTER at Ft. Hood, Tx, and three reserve component armor battalions in Texas, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The comparative data was developed on a visit to Israel and the Israeli Defense Force IDF, the Federal Republic of Germany and the Bundeswehr. The study team visited active and reserve component headquarters, training bases and training units in both of these countries. Based upon the data developed by observations, discussion and a survey of US Reserve Component armor crews along with the visit to Israel and Germany the team proposed recommendations for improving armor training in the US Army National Guard and the US Army Reserve.
