Activities not critical during intense combat operations will be deferred. Modular support primarily shifts footprint in time or space, thereby decreasing initial deployment footprint and decreasing the size of maneuver units. Thus it increases operational and strategic mobility, even though it does not necessarily reduce total combat zone footprint. We note that modular support is really not new, but a return to force-design concepts that have been used in the past, such as in the World War II infantry division design, which emphasized the minimization of organic assets.

In fact, the SBCTs are primarily being converted from light forces, so actual CSS will grow. Considering the four active infantry brigades being converted (three light and one mechanized), CSS spaces will increase in these brigades by 440 when including the CSSCs. SBCT fielding schedule: • 3rd Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division (3-2 SBCT), Fort Lewis, Washington, FY03 (until FY07, when the Army plans to convert a brigade in Germany to the SBCT design) • 1st Brigade, 25th Infantry Division, Fort Lewis, FY04 • 172nd Infantry Brigade, Fort Wainwright, Alaska, FY05 • 2nd Cavalry Regiment, Fort Polk, Louisiana, FY06 • 2nd Brigade, 25th Infantry Division, Schofield Barracks, Hawaii, FY07 • 56th SBCT, 28th ID, Pennsylvania Army National Guard, FY10 26 personnel have been substantially reduced as well from a relative sense, but this reduction contributes much less to the overall improvement, because of the smaller size of these functions within AOE BCTs.

Therefore it might be acceptable to exchange CS for some combat arms footprint, but in general, such a tradeoff would not be desirable from a CSS standpoint. 19 Footprint can be measured similarly for combat arms, combat support, and CSS, but these measurements should be balanced against different considerations. 19While we will stay with the use of combat arms, CS, and CSS in the remainder of this document, the previous discussion suggests that a better set of terms might be useful in categorizing metrics for Army Transformation.
