Abstract:

This report presents a proposed concept for training reserve component RC nondivisional direct and general support units to maintain the M1 tank and its components. Key elements of the concept are that 1 special courses and training aids be developed to support RC training, 2 maximum opportunity for weekend training on Active Army M1 tanks be taken, and 3 a limited number of Regional Training Centers RTC be established to support RC units which will not otherwise have weekend access to the M1 system. Major recommendations toward implementing the proposed concept are that firm training requirements be established, the number of RTCs and their locations be determined and that immediate work begin on developing the special RC courses. The problems faced by RC units due to the M1 system are not unique but typical of those faced with most new systems. The proposed M1 concept can be used as prototype for other new systems. Author
