In todayas complicated and uncertain world, it is impossible to predict the exact nature of future conflict that might involve U.S. forces. This is the nature of the contemporary operational environment (COE), and training for such an environment requires a different type of Opposing Force (OPFOR) than that of the past. It has been nearly thirty years since a holistic explanation of the Soviet-based Opposing Force (OPFOR) was examined in the U.S. Army Field Manual 100-2 series. Recognizing this, aOPFOR SMARTbook 3: Red Team Armya re-examines and outlines the doctrinal operational construct and historical foundations of Soviet-era military forces from the FM 100-2 series, which is now out-of-print and largely unavailable. Second, OPFOR SMARTbook 3 reorganizes that foundational material and aligns it in keeping with contemporary military doctrinal taxonomy to include ADRP 3-0 Unified Land Operations and ADRP 3-90 Offense and Defense (Tactics). Third, OPFOR SMARTbook 3 translates and bridges the strategic- and operational-level doctrine into tactical application at the small-unit level. Through this triangulation, a more modern rendition of Red Team Armies emerges. OPFOR SMARTbook 3: Red Team Army (Forces, Operations a Tactics) is the first of three upcoming Opposing Forces (OPFOR) SMARTbooks, the first book in our upcoming aNational Powera series (D-I-M-E is our DOMAIN!) of in-depth specialty-titles, and itas also our first FULL-COLOR edition!The various transportation services under MOD are traffic management, railroad operations, railroad maintenance and construction, highway ...
