What's inside:

This manual is based on the premise that although the unit organization, weapons systems, and conditions have changed, antiarmor company and platoon maneuver, fire, and movement have not changed.

FM 3-21.91 (FM 7-91) provides doctrine for employing the antiarmor company and platoon. It contains guidance on tactics and techniques that antiarmor companies and platoons use in offensive, defensive, stability, and support operations.

This manual borrows from “nested” concepts found in FM 7-10 and FM 71-1 and reemphasizes information from other manuals that are of critical importance. The target audience includes antiarmor platoon leaders, company and battalion commanders, and battalion staff officers. This manual provides training developers with the combat-critical tasks and missions of antiarmor companies and platoons, and it enables combat developers to refine and revise operational concepts for antiarmor organizations.

Antiarmor companies and platoons can fight and win engagements within the full spectrum of operations (offense, defense, stability, and support). The antiarmor company is normally task organized by the airborne/air assault infantry battalion commander or the Stryker brigade combat team (SBCT) commander, based on his estimate of the situation, to perform a variety of tactical missions as part of battalion or SBCT operations. The light infantry battalion commander task organizes his antiarmor platoon in much the same manner. In filling this combat role, the antiarmor unit integrates with combat, combat support (CS), and combat service support (CSS) elements. The company and platoons are capable of deploying as part of the Army's force projection requirements. This chapter addresses antiarmor doctrine, organization, fundamentals, and capabilities and limitations.
