FM 4-90.7: STRYKER BRIGADE COMBAT TEAM LOGISTICS
Official US Army Field Manual in Acrobat PDF file format.
This field manual gives the commander and staff of the Stryker brigade combat team (SBCT) and subordinate units doctrinal guidance for logistics operations. This manual describes how the SBCT optimizes logistics organizational effectiveness while balancing the needs of customer units with rapid strategic deployability. It also serves as an authoritative reference for personnel who develop doctrine, force structure, training, and standing operating procedures for SBCT operations.
The SBCT is manned and equipped primarily to conduct operations in a small scale contingency but may be augmented to participate in major combat operations. Its mobility and organic intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance assets make it invaluable to a division or corps commander in a major combat operation.
This manual describes the functions of the SBCT’s brigade support battalion (BSB), which includes a headquarters company, a distribution company, a field maintenance company, and a brigade support medical company. The SBCT headquarters and the BSB are capable of planning for and absorbing augmenting units/sections that provide mission specific logistic support capabilities not organic to the SBCT such as financial management or mortuary affairs. This manual is focused on logistics functions and is not meant to be an overarching document for combat service support unit operations.
