Does Kevin's COA 4 include any CS or CSS brigades?I still like Kevin's COA 4: 2 Div each of 3 Bde - all Bde mixed Reg and Res.
I save even more PY
And given the recent GOFO immolation, less HQ seems to be healthier for everyone...
FJAG's COA 4 also includes 2 Divs but with 3 x Reg and 2 x Res manoeuvre brigade groups and 1 x CS and 2 x CSS brigades.
That's another thing that I don't like about the Army's COA 3 (nor 1 and 2). While there seems to be some change in structure and lines of responsibility in CSS, nothing seems to tear us away from what is basically a static structure. Nothing creates more operationally focused deployable CSS assets. Have I told you recently that I think that NSEs are the work of the devil?
Nothing that I see in any of these COAs is designed to grow the force to a level where it can expand beyond three brigade groups and nowhere is there any indication we will create the ability to deploy anything beyond a battlegroup. (Besides that I just don't trust people that talk about a future MLRS capability and then show a picture of a HIMARS - It's not that I want MLRS, I prefer HIMARS - but it shows a profound shallowness of knowledge)
I need to make a correction to what I said above. The infantry battalions with 2 x RFL 1 and 1 x RFL 2 companies refers to the Reg F battalions. The Res F TBGs are all identified as having only an RFL 3 capability. Sorry about that.The COA 3 structure calls for 19 Res F Infantry TBG/battalions with 2 x RFL 1 companies and 1 x RFL 2 company each but still under 10 x Bde HQs.
