FORT BENNING, Ga., (Feb. 24, 2016) — The latest collaboration between Maneuver Center of Excellence and operating force leaders paid off with the recent publication of Army Techniques Publication 3-90.1, Armor and Mechanized Infantry Company Team.
The new manual provides techniques for the employment of Armor and Mechanized Infantry company teams within combined arms battalions in a brigade combat team.
“As the Army prepares for the next operation, it is critical to provide current and relevant doctrine to our maneuver formations. Our Soldiers have adapted well to the operating environment over the years. As leaders, it is our responsibility to consolidate these successful techniques in one place,” said Col. Marty Barr, chief of MCoE Doctrine.
The ATP, published Jan. 27, replaces the 2002 version, Field Manual 3-90.1. It presents new information on warfighting functions, unified land operations, information collection and transitions between operations.
“Soldiers on the battlefield must think faster than the enemy,” said Bruce Moore, Armored Brigade Combat Team Doctrine Branch. “Updated doctrine gives them a framework to start from. It is also how we provide years of experience to our Soldiers.”
This new manual combines traditional and effective techniques with current methods from all aspects of the fight. It will provide doctrinal guidance to commanders, staffs and leaders who execute future operations. “This sharing of information allows for shared understanding and is what makes our Army so successful,” said Barr.
ATP 3-90.1 is available for download (with CAC card access), from the Army Publishing Directorate at: https://armypubs.us.army.mil/doctrine/.
