Abstract:

There are six chapters to this study. In Chapter I the background and reason for the study is given. In Chapter 2 a proposed brigade with organic combat support and combat service support is postulated. Possible changes in the division are also proposed. Chapter 3 is the operational environment for the brigade. Chapter 4 looks at our allies and potential enemy. Chapter 5 is an analysis, while Chapter 6 is the conclusions of the study project. The current division, brigade and battalion are the result of organizational development that was reached in 1944 in the WW 2 light armored division. This study concludes that the brigade should immediately be provided with organic combat service support and that organic combat support should be provided after further study and justification.
