Abstract:

This Research Note presents the conclusions of an exploratory analysis performed by the Army Research Institute. Using the data compiled from 64 take home packages completed by units which had been through battalion task force training at the National Training Center NTC, the following findings were made 1 There was considerable variability in performance, both between battalions, and across missions. 2 Generally, the task forces suffered very high casualty rates themselves, while inflicting relatively low casualty rates on the opposing forces OPFOR. This seemed to be the case for all task forces, and was seemingly unrelated to the MTOE modification table of organization and equipment of the task force. In order to understand task force performance, it will be necessary to have a full complement of data, rather than the partial complement available in the take home packages.
