ok BB, what do you make of this reorganization?

http://www.janes.com/article/29599/idf-restructures-armoured-battalions

in a nutshell theyll be giving up some tanks but getting a lot of infantry and supporting units.

Conceptually it sounds like a good idea, but I'm not convinced they've got enough non-mortar-launching crunches to really support the tanks the right way.  We'll have to see how they task-organize above the BN level

it sounds like they plan of using the scout elements to find the atgm teams and then suppress them with mortor and air.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.
