Looking at the structure of the GSAB as a whole, this support structure makes sense; through task organization, the GSAB can operate at three separate locations, one consolidated and two remote.
The field feeding structure makes sense only if the GSAB were to deploy without external support.
Considering this information, the field feeding section of the GSAB FSC can be downsized to five personnel: one staff sergeant, two sergeants, and two lower enlisted Soldiers.
The two GSAB FSC culinary specialists can feed the entire remote element, freeing up the attack or assault battalion culinary specialists to augment the main location if required.
The GSAB FSC distribution section is authorized 50 Soldiers, two advanced aviation forward area refueling systems, 22 heavy expanded-mobility tactical truck (HEMTT) fuel tankers, six trailer-mounted modular fuel systems, and five HEMTT tanker aviation refueling system.
But, in reality, petroleum supply specialists within the GSAB can fuel any aircraft at their assigned location regardless of their section.
The GSAB FSC can meet most theater aviation brigade fuel-handling requirements with 26 Soldiers.
This would allow the GSAB to reduce the number of HEMTT fuel tankers required.
The GSAB FSC maintenance section is authorized 47 personnel and a complete wheeled-vehicle repair package to include standard automotive tool sets, a forward repair system, and contact trucks.
The number of GSAB vehicles can be greatly reduced, which would allow for the maintenance section to be downsized.
The GSAB would maintain flightline vehicles and a small element of medium tactical vehicles (MTVs) and humvees.
The GSAB can use its heavy-lift assets to self-deploy equipment, work with the local CSSB to line-haul large amounts of equipment, or have the Air Force airlift equipment to the area of operations.
