Default A US view on how to counter the Russian BTG

link: http://www.benning.army.mil/armor/ea...g/2Fiore17.pdf

All in all a very interesting article, I just want to say that it is highly ironic that contrary to how the US Army was supposed to fight the Soviet formations, nowadays the solution the author suggests is more or less to fight like the US Army in the ETO in WW2.

Tactics change based on your/their current capabilities.

Well ... they should. Far to often people keep getting ready for the last war.

Interesting. This would seem to contradict (or blissfully ignore?) the account linked by Wulfir in his thread "Lessons Learned from the Rus-Ukr war":

http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/showthread.php?t=51125

Brings to mind the quote attributed to Greek dramatist Aeschylus, that "In war the first casualty is truth."

Interesting reading. However I'm fairly certain that our hypothetical American Brigade Combat Team commander would quickly find that his hypothetical Russian counterpart in the Battalion Tactical Group had requested substantial reinforcements upon encountering his American opposite rendering this otherwise rather neat tactical primer fairly obsolete.

Another very interesting article:

https://www.slideshare.net/MarcWilli...-diamond-jul16

Check the pages 3-16, it is a tactical vignette describing a BTG defending against a US BCT.
