ATP 3-90.5 describes the techniques and procedures to tactically employ the combined arms battalion (CAB), the primary maneuver force of the Armored brigade combat team (ABCT) in unified land operations. While providing basic doctrinal principles, it attempts to refer tactical discussion out to FM 3-96 and other appropriate manuals.
This publication provides techniques and procedures appropriate for the CAB to effectively exercise the warfighting functions of command and control, movement and maneuver, intelligence, fires, sustainment, and protection, in the conduct of sustained combined arms and close combat operations. The techniques and procedures described herein are intended as a guide and are to be viewed as flexible in application, depending on the factors of mission, enemy, terrain and weather, troops and support available, time available, and civil considerations. Each situation in combat must be resolved by adaptable leaders who exercise initiative to intelligently interpret and apply the doctrine set forth herein. Purchase at Amazon
