This manual is one of a series that describes a capabilities-based Opposing Force (OPFOR) for training US Army commanders, staffs, and units. If not, the infantry-based forces of FM may better fit training needs. . Likewise, some types of OPFOR described in FM can.

Chapters 1, 2, and 5 showed how units allocated 100-633 this pool can augment forces already organic to a division, military district, or military region. The General Staff consists predominantly of Ground Forces personnel, many of whom also hold po- sitions in the Ground Forces Headquarters. The distinction between infantry 10-063 motorized infantry becomes clear only at brigade level, since the trucks for movement of infantry are organic to the motorized infantry brigade.
The region or army, in turn, may attach such a bat- talion to a subordinate military district or division that lacks an organic reconnaissance and EC battalion.
However, most have three signal battalions identical to those organic to divisions and districts p. All Army training venues should use an OPFOR based on these manuals, except when mission rehearsal or contingency training requires maximum fidelity to a specific country-based threat. This total includes up to 4 training aircraft per squadron that can also perform reconnaissance.
Infantry-Based Opposing Force — FM 100-63
The MRL battery is not present in all infantry brigades. Depending on the size of its population centers, a district might be able to constitute a brigade-sized militia force, or at least multiple battalions.
He may find it necessary to draw some elements from both organization guides in order to consti- tute the appropriate OPFOR order of battle. Separate mechanized infantry brigades and well-equipped districts can have either the ATGM battalion as depicted above or an antitank battalion see p. For example, users may desk to mir- ror the actual mix of equipment found in a particular region or to introduce a particular weapons capabil- ity or vulnerability.
A weapons company requires 3 utility trucks and 12 light trucks. Divisions mobilized from reserves may have a smaller headquarters element.
The motorcycle section provides courier service for the battalion commander. Instead, it is directly subordinate to a military district or an army.
However, the bridge specifications are all similar. The half-set held by the en- gineer battalion can make up a bridge meters of ton bridge, meters of ton bridge or several rafts. Other page numbers indicate organizations in which the indexed unit is subordinate or appears in a note. However, training requirements may dictate some modifications to this baseline. Even a district with a standing division in peacetime might have that division resubordinated to a higher-priority district or region in war- time.

However, it always has some type of battery-sized air defense unit. It can also allocate individual companies to support specific district or region operations. A country with large infantry forces can have extensive, basic weapons industries, or it may still import most systems. At battalion level and higher, subordinate units common to both infantry and motorized infantry have their basic entry under the motorized parent unit.
Shoulder-Fired 3 36 54 93 7. A full bridge set consists of 32 center and 4 ramp sections. Although this organization guide provides a baseline of widely-used systems produced in the former Soviet Union FSUthe intent of the capabilities-based OPFOR is to allow users to tailor their orders of battle by substituting other worldwide systems. National air defense forces. Instead of SP gun battalions, some brigades may have gun battalions equipped with the towed mm field gun, 2A Entries within the alternative category also include one of the following symbols identifying each system’s capabilities in relation to the base- line: If so, these variants can carry a variety of armaments.
Appendix A contains matrices with suggested examples of appropriate substitutions for major maneu- ver and fire support systems. Entries include the system name and the digraph for country of origin.
The primary difference is in the required POL transport capability. Military regions are the primary recipients of these assets. The region may or may not retain some of these national assets to form a military region artillery group MR AG. Listing these familiar, well-documented systems paints an immediate, concrete picture of that capability.
A Appendix B Engineer Equipment Substitution Matrices The matrices contained in this appendix illustrate some of the different equipment options available to scenario and order of 10063 developers. The follow- ing organization chart represents the types of air defense mf that may be available to the ADC.
The vm chart above shows the typical mix of battery types in a composite artil- lery battalion. A military region normally receives no more than one of any brigade- or regiment-sized unit type from the national asset pool.
Equipment totals below are for the three-battalion version. It just doesn’t exist in electronic format that I could find. It includes the Air Defense Command. Standing divisions have the assets shown above, even before mobilization.
For illustrative purposes, the equipment lists in this manual show systems produced by the former Soviet Union FSU. Users should determine the proper sizing and allocation of the national asset pool based on training require- ments.
There is at least one reload per TEL. Plenty of old manuals that never got published electronically.
Rather than being subordinate to military regions and districts, these divisions and separate brigades constitute several standing armies or corps.
Unlike the other systems, 100-3 Case and John Deer systems do not have a rotary trencher but can still use a bucket or backhoe to make a trench, 100-663 the same results.
FM depicts a variety of such forces that US forces may encounter. Armor- and Mechanized-Based Opposing Force: They do not fight by the rules of conventional warfare. This difference in terminology does not signify a different structure or capability. Some mixed AA gun battalions may have two batteries of
