In most cases, field trains reside in the brigade support area and include the assets that are not located with the combat trains.
The field trains command post (FTCP) is often based on a linear battlefield and depends on mission, enemy, terrain and weather, troops, support available, time available, and civil considerations.
The various units within the BSA (engineers, signal, military intelligence, military police, air defense artillery, field trains
) also know how to perform their missions.
Incorporating field trains
within the brigade support area and having each battalion supply one to two vehicle platforms for support would be a great way to have 02 priority repair parts expedited throughout the training area with the sole purpose of improving combat readiness across the BCT.
