Field Manual-Interim (FMI) 3-90.6 provides tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP) for the tactical employment of the heavy brigade combat team (HBCT). This publication: Provides the doctrinal guidance for commanders, staffs, and subordinate commanders and leaders of the currently transitioning organizations who are responsible for conducting (planning, preparing, executing, and assessing) operations in the HBCT. Serves as an authoritative reference for personnel developing doctrine (fundamental principles and TTP) materiel and force structure, institution and unit training, and standing operating procedures (SOPs) for HBCT operations. This FMI addresses operations for HBCTs organized under the Army modular concept that governs the development of equipment, training, and structure for former divisional brigades. The procedures described herein are intended as a guide and are not to be considered inflexible. Each situation in combat must be resolved by an intelligent interpretation and application of the doctrine set forth herein. The guiding manual for this FMI has been FM 3-90.3, The Mounted Brigade Combat Team. FMI 3-90.6 is written for the HBCT commander, the HBCT battle staff, subordinate commanders, and all supporting units. The manual reflects and supports the Army operations doctrine as stated in FM 3-0, Operations. This is not intended as a standalone reference for HBCT operations; rather, it is intended to be used in conjunction with existing doctrine. This FMI is published to provide expedited delivery of doctrine urgently needed to execute transformation to modular organizations. It has not been placed through the standard development process but is authorized for implementation. FM 3-90.6 is under development and will supersede this FMI before its expiration date. Send comments on this FMI to the address below. The proponent will consider them for inclusion in FM 3- 90.6. The doctrine in this FMI is based on suggestions, insights, and observations developed from four separate 3d Infantry Division HBCT rotations at the Combat Training Centers (CTCs), conducted by Task Force Modularity Field Experimentation Project Team (FEPT), Joint and Army Experimentation Division (JAED), Futures Center (FC), TRADOC, during FY 2004. Each CTC rotation yielded valuable information concerning the HBCT operations. Additionally, Task Force Logistics contributed significant insights to the doctrine in this FMI. This FMI was written in conjunction with five other FMI relating to HBCT operations, including HBCT combined arms battalion operations; HBCT fires and effects operations; HBCT logistics; the HBCT brigade troops battalion operations; and the HBCT reconnaissance squadron operations. For the most part, these FMI include only TTP that have changed due to the new organization. These FMI include not only TTP that have changed due to the new organization but also a wide variety of TTP that, after implementing the new HBCT organization, remain relevant and provide the required contextual frameworks.
