It was composed of:
- Headquarters & an A company, which provided command, control, and oversight for the battalion & quartermaster support to the brigade. However, the forward support battalions of armored and mechanized brigades would have a separate Headquarters and Headquarters Detachment (HHD) and A company.
- A B company, which provided maintenance support to the brigade both with 3rd Shop, and Maintenance Support Teams attached to the individual battalions.
- A C company, which provided level II medical support to the brigade.
With the conversion to the modular force, the FSBs are being replaced with brigade support battalions (BSBs)
