Abstract:

This report describes the development of a rapid train-up package and tank platoon scenarios for armor training in the Army National Guard. The rapid train-up package, which consists of training materials designed for opportunity training and for home study, is intended for use at home stations during inactive duty training, at training sites during annual training, and at mobilization and postmobilization sites during mobilization. The package contains 17 training modules 52 different tasks for tasks that must be performed from memory five study guides 18 different tasks or knowledge areas for acquiring knowledge without access to equipment and 30 graphic training aids for training and assisting with job performance. The package also contains directions for use and a cross-walk linking armor tasks to the appropriate training method. Further, the report describes the development of a set of scenarios for training platoon tactics on a mobile version of the Simulation Networking training device M-SIMNET. The report contains three scenarios -- a movement to contact, a hasty attack, and a deliberate defense. It describes special requirements for M-SIMNET scenarios and provides guidelines for preparing additional scenarios for M-SIMNET.
