Combined Arms Gap-Crossing Operations

9781494240356: Combined Arms Gap-Crossing Operations

the combined arms team that enhances mobility of the force by projecting elements across an obstacle, wet or dry, in support of assured mobility. It is also applicable to joint, interagency, or multinational forces and is specifically written as a dual manual between the United States (U.S.) Army and the U.S. Marine Corps (USMC). Although other branches contribute to gap-crossing operations and are included in the discussions, this manual focuses on the engineer contribution to gap-crossing operations, while acknowledging the significant role of other branches and capabilities. This manual follows the principles and tenets found in Field Manual (FM) 3-90, FM 3-34, and FM 3-34.2 that continues the discussion of mobility and gap-crossing operations. It recognizes the contribution of the entire combined arms team to gap-crossing operations and the multi-Service capabilities that exist to support gap-crossing operations at both the tactical and operational levels. Finally, it addresses the specifics associated with gap crossing in support of combat maneuver and line of communications (LOC) gap crossing, integrating the considerations created by the significant changes to doctrine and force structure that have occurred since FM 90-13 was published in 1998. This FM is the tactical commander’s and engineer staff planner’s manual and primary resource for understanding gap-crossing operations. This manual follows the mobility concepts and fundamentals outlined in FM 3-34.2 and is intended for use by commanders and their staff at both the operational and tactical levels. It relates the engineer-focused aspects of gap crossing to the functional area of combined arms mobility operations, incorporating new concepts associated with the expansion of the existing Army task (ART) Conduct Gap-Crossing Operations and the advent of the modular force structure.
