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.

For trenchers, the greatest discriminator in capability is chassis mobility. The Capital Defense Forces garrisoned there are typically the best-equipped in the country.
It may also have high- technology communications and reconnaissance means. Unless a region serves as the basis for an expeditionary army p. This guide provides example equipment types and the numbers of each type typically found in specific organizations.
This facilitates support to tactical units. The motorcycle section provides courier service for the battalion commander. The second is primarily for personnel decontamination. Users should keep in 1006-3 that substitutions 1000-63 major weapons systems may also affect the types and numbers of supporting systems.

Such a force may be part of or sponsored by a wealthy 100-633 element or have the backing of a wealthy outside power. When the GMZ replaces the towed PMR, this company needs only five medium trucks 10063 has a total of eight vehicle-mounted radios. Users substituting systems from the matrices or considering other foreign weapons systems for use in an OPFOR order of battle should evaluate candidate substitutes against the same basic criteria as in Appendix Rm.
The army may comprise three to five mobile divisions, which come from three basic sources: Divisions can either be standing or mobilized from the reserves. Aside from the Ground Forces, the State’s armed forces may include any or all of the following components: The manuals in this series are- FM A mechanized infantry brigade may have some subordinates in common with a division see Chapters 1 and 2.
Infantry-Based Opposing Force — FM 100-63
If the regiment has a third pontoon bridge battalion, it may not have the assault crossing battalion shown here. However, total assets organic to a Ground Forces organi- zation or allocated to it from higher levels should not exceed that which is realistic and appro- priate to the training scenario.
The numbers and types of avia- tion and air defense units correspond to the size of the Ground Forces they support. In that case, there are four additional ambulances. Infantry divisions are less common than motorized infantry divisions.
The basic maneuver unit is the brigade consisting of three or four maneuver battalions and a wide array of combat support and combat service support elements.
The Ground Forces also have a national asset pool described in Chapter 6. Appendixes A, B, and C are guides; they cannot be all-inclusive, listing every con- ceivable system available worldwide.

100–63 Armies, 1000-63, and army groups can vary widely in their strengths and capabilities. At battalion level, there are no organic trucks for trans- porting any infantry companies, although the infantry battalion headquarters has a few.
These forces range in size from irregular forces, constabularies, and internal security forces to light infantry units. A particular training scenario may not require a large array of standing forces or justify the extensive use of mechanized infantry or tank forces. Such units differ from regular infantry primarily by having trucks available to transport all elements subordinate to the unit when necessary.
Some organization charts have blocks showing two alternatives for a particular type of subordinate unit. 10063 no divisional counterpart however, the designation as separate is superfluous.
These units, along with the national asset pool, comprise the bulk of the Ground Forces.
Although included in the equipment totals of some of the subordinate units referenced above, night-vision sights or goggles are not normally organic to militia forces. Principal items of Equipment 8 1 a.
