Acronym Confusion[edit]

Acronyms are bad enough but changing them in the middle of a paragraph is ... unfriendly. Pick one - BUA or BUoA. It's not a big deal but makes for a cleaner article. I would recommend the one the Army uses - probably BUA. —Preceding unsigned comment added by DaBraunBird (talkcontribs) 19:34, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

FM 3-90.6 availability?[edit]

The above-referenced field manual is a principal source of information for this article, but when I went to look it up to fact-check it, I couldn't find any available (on or off-line). I have access to nearly every publicly-available database-- could someone point me to a referenceable cite for this?

If such a citation doesn't exist, I'm not sure I can accept this as a Reliable Source WP:RS per wiki policies. 131.96.47.8 (talk) 22:18, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

Army FM's can be downloaded from https://rdl.train.army.mil/catalog/catalog/search.html which I believe to be publicly available. Hodorbaker (talk) 21:23, 13 September 2013 (UTC)

I did try through there, but didn't have much luck finding the manuals themselves, mainly as it was asking me to input an AKO account login to access them, so I decided to try through Active_FM, which allowed access to the Brigade Combat Team manual, which is now linked on the page, the other three I found through Google searches. From experience, all the FMs that the US DOD doesn't allow the public to access on their official websites can be found being hosted elsewhere on the internet just through a web search using the FM number. – Nohomers48 (talkcontribs) 09:39, 14 September 2013 (UTC)

15 ABCTs not 10[edit]

The reorganization information is wrong. https://www.army.mil/standto/archive_2016-12-01 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 214.25.29.6 (talk) 18:25, 1 December 2016 (UTC)

MCoE 3-90 availability[edit]

This article cites MCoE Supplemental Manual 3-90, September 2013... this was updated annually from (at least, if not before) 2007 - does anyone have access to a more up-to-date version, as there have been lots of chances in the past three+ years! Andrew D Banks (talk) 09:46, 8 January 2017 (UTC)
