Abstract:

The reorganization of the 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment ACR was examined using the Janus model. The primary questions being examined were the different organizational structures and the sizing of the Mobile Gun System MOS Platoon. This analysis utilized two scenarios a zone reconnaissance and a moving flank guard on Eastern European terrain. TRADOC Analysis Center TRAC at White Sands Missile Range hosted and assisted in the modeling on their Janus suite. The organizational structures that were analyzed included the current HMMWV based organization employed by the 2nd ACR, an updated organization equipped with Interim Armored Vehicles IAV, and the Interim Brigade Combat Team IBCT organization. The alternative sizes for the MGS Platoon were three and four MGS per platoon.
