Abstract:

The enclosed final report is the culmination of the U.S. Army Armor Center effort to collect Desert ShieldStorm emerging observations and provide them to the Total Armor Force TAF and other selected agencies. The report is a compilation of a year long effort with the following objectives a To gather Armor related information through interviews, surveys, after action reports, and miscellaneous sources b Compile the information into a usable form that can be easily studied and analyzed to look for trends and consensus on issues and observations c Draw conclusions from the detailed assessments based upon the five Training and Doctrine Command functional areas of doctrine, organization, training, materiel, and leader development d Disseminate conclusions to the Total Armor Force and incorporate them into our training and e Record Armor history. In addition to providing the TAF the conclusions derived from our study of Desert ShieldStorm, this report will also feed the ongoing Armor 2000 effort and the upcoming Armor Functional Area Assessment FAA. Both of these actions are critically important to the future of the Armor Force.
