Preface

FM 71-3 describes the employment of the armored and mechanized infantry brigade through full dimension operations as outlined in FM 100-5. This manual is intended to assist brigade commanders, their staffs, and subordinate commanders in planning and conducting brigade operations. Familiarity with FM 100-5 and FM 71-100 is essential to use this manual.

Incorporated in this manual are tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP) for the tactical employment of the armored and mechanized brigade and tactical standing operating procedures (TSOP). FM 71-3 is the foundation for the continuing development of TTPs. The TSOP is generic and is intended for use by any armored and mechanized infantry brigade.

The proponent of this publication is TRADOC. Send comments and recommendations on DA Form 2028 (Recommended Changes to Publications and Blank Forms) directly to Commandant, USAARMS, ATSB-SBD-D, Fort Knox, Kentucky 40121-5200.

The term "armored" applies to armor and mechanized infantry forces where employed.

Unless otherwise stated, masculine nouns and pronouns do not refer exclusively to men.
