Agree on the rhyming letters, however, the J exception existed prior to the code. And it was not just a cavalry quirk.

Well, Since my ACR is growing, I figured it was time to build some facilities to repair and overhaul the vehicles.



Just purchased these two beauties. They arrived on Friday and I quick assembled them. They need to be sealed and then painted. Have to get some clear blue plastic for the windows and boom they are done. If you want to know more, I did a whole write up on my site about how I put them together.

P.S. I do know there are some marine vehicles parked in front. I assure you they are just passing through.

Panzergator,

If I only had space.. if I only had space. LOL.. Once we buy our house, I will endeavor to set up a nice display area. Till then, I am going to try and use them in a game. I figure they could stand in for some warehouses.

Hoth,
That looks great. You certainly will need to post pictures when completed.
I like those.

Thanks, I am glad you like them. If you decide to buy some, I did a write up on my blog about how I assembled them. I will definitely post some pictures when I am done.

Does anybody know exactly how many UH-60s are in the assault troop of an ACR? One source I found says 13 UH-60s and another source says 15. That's a lot of helicopters! And both sources list the EW and C2 birds in other troops.

Thanks!

What MTOE,Redleg? A lot has changed over the last couple decades. That is why I only go to the initial DIV-86/J series TOE.

The answers to all of your questions will soon be revealed:

http://shipbucket.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=3119

Be prepared to spend a day scrolling but well worth it...

page 7 for the UH 60 Question, at least as of 2004.

This is a fantastic site although I can't vouch for the accuracy, it seems pretty well spot on.

Happy hunting!

Very cool! Thanks, Cav Dog!

PG, for my ACR aviation I am using FM 1-114 (Air Cavalry Squadron and troops Ops) dated Feb 2000, and I'm also using this website: https://fas.org/man/dod-101/army/unit/toe/

Still waiting on a few vehicles to arrive to complete the regimental HHT, but at least I have Bison 6 and his regimental command group done.


Bubenhausen, Germany: This afternoon the V Corps commander presided over the 9th ACR activation ceremony at Kavallerie Kaserne. The USAREUR Band sounded glorious and the speeches were mercifully short. The regiment is still forming, but with two complete squadrons, a regimental HQ, and some helicopters, the unit is capable of conducting operations.

The regiment will occupy two facilities on the outskirts of Bubenhausen. Kavallerie Kaserne is to the south west and is home to the Regimental HHT, 2nd Squadron, and 4th Squadron at Kurth Army Airfield. Buffel Kaserne is to the north west and is home to 1st Squadron. 3rd Squadron and the Support Squadron will call Buffel Kaserne home as they are activated.

Here are armored cavalry capabilities per FM 17-95 (Cavalry Operations)

Redleg, it must've been really difficult to paint all those red and white ascots on the troopers in formation.

Please make certain that any new Cav Stetsons are properly broken in. Please include pictures as well as video of the belt lifts and carrier landings that undoubtedly occurred during the after party.

If you ain't Cav...
