US Army to form 11th ABCT

#1
While our MoD continues to prevaricate about Challenger upgrades, and/or the structure of the Strike Brigades, the US Army is pushing ahead with plans to create an 11th active-component Armored Brigade Combat Team, by converting 2nd IBCT of 4th Infantry Division.

While converting in situ at Fort Carson seems the obvious choice, the proposal includes options of Forts Bliss, Hood, Riley or Stewart - although I suspect that is more associated with the planned formation (from scratch) of a 12th ABCT next year


Press Release: Public comment welcomed by U.S. Army for stationing a new armored brigade combat team

For about 10 seconds I thought it was 11th Airborne reforming again

I meant SBCTs have been around for a good while while the British Army is going to experiment with Strike and MIV (whenever that arrives)
Tracking now, yes the Stryker Brigade is the middle weight formation we employ. We have 7 of those in the active Army and two in the Guard. I am kinda shocked the Brits don't have something like that in their active inventory.
