This manual is one of a series that describes a capabilities-based Opposing Force (OPFOR) for training US Army commanders, staffs, and units. If not, the infantry-based forces of FM may better fit training needs. . Likewise, some types of OPFOR described in FM can.

Standing divisions have the assets shown above, even before mobilization. Movement of the weapons company re- quires 3 utility trucks and 12 light trucks.
They also contain some alternative systems that may perform the same missions with greater or lesser capability or have different capabilities for special uses. One squad leader is also the assistant platoon leader. For trenchers, the greatest discriminator in capability is chassis mobility. They prefer hit-and-run raids, ambushes, ruses, sabotage, and assassinations. This facilitates support to tactical units.
Each team contains one SPG Others may wish to standardize systems throughout the or- der of battle for simplicity or ease in modeling. They tend to modernize selected systems to match the best systems deployed by their neighbors.
Personnel in the long-range reconnaissance company have parachute training. They do not try to meet such an enemy head-on in conventional combat.
An expedition- ary army is a joint command and is the integration point for ground, air, naval, and special op- erations forces. Users should exercise caution in modifying equipment holdings, since this impacts on an OPFOR unit’s organizational integrity and combat capabilities.
Infantry-Based Opposing Force — FM 100-63
Entries within the alternative tm also include one of the following symbols identifying each system’s capabilities in relation to the base- line: Regardless of militia size, every village, farm cooperative, or factory has a militia formation, manned in wartime by the workers and peasants, over-age reserv- ists, medically-retired soldiers, women, and young men not yet old enough for military service. Instead, it is directly subordinate to a military district or an army.
Small-to-medium armor- and mechanized-based forces cover a wide range of technology and capability, from developing states through small, professional armies. A military region normally receives no more than one of any brigade- or regiment-sized unit type from the national asset pool.
Most infantry divisions have company-sized engineer, signal, reconnaissance, and medical units.
However, some better-equipped motorized infantry divi- sions may have battalion-sized antitank, engineer, signal, reconnaissance and ECand medical units. B Appendix C Cargo Truck, Trailer, and Radio Substitution This manual uses generic descriptors to indicate truck and trailer capacity and radioca- pabilities.
It may employ rm brigade, or one or two airborne infantry battalions from it, to support an operation conducted by a military region or an expeditionary army.
The Ground Forces are the largest branch of the armed 10-063.

This battalion always remains under DMI control. Although this larger force may have improved communications, the OPFOR must rely on outside states for use of communications satellites.
If the US force is participating in a peacekeeping operation, for example, the OPFOR may be the recognized military of a belligerent nation. This regiment is particularly suited for allocation to a high-priority region or district.
Similarly, 10-63 separate motorized infantry brigade is not part of a motorized infantry division or any division, for that matter.
The army could include separate mechanized or motorized infantry brigades or tank brigades directly subordinate to the army commander. Commando battalions are organic to the Special Operations Command and the better- equipped districts, including the Capital Defense Forces. There are two reasons for using FSU-produced equipment as the baseline.
Each medium truck can carry up to two infantry squads or weapons squads. During times of cri- sis and wartime, the Directorate is also responsible for finding and neutralizing dissidents and spies. The greatest discriminator in capability here is whether the system could be autonomous or requires assembly with other sections. Entries within the alternative category also include one of the following symbols identify- ing each system’s capabilities in relation to the baseline:
