316th Cavalry Brigade

The 316th Cavalry Brigade trains leaders in mounted maneuver and reconnaissance in 10 core and combat skills courses. The brigade also provides technical oversight and subject matter expertise in the development and evaluation of mounted force doctrine, training development and force development. The brigade is organized into three components:

The 1st Squadron, 16th Cavalry Regiment, provides Soldier and equipment support to the Armor School while training Armor and Cavalry Soldiers. The squadron, organized into five ground troops, is frequently called upon to highlight Armor’s role as an essential element of the Army’s combined arms team through exercises, displays and community events.

The 3rd Squadron, 16th Cavalry Regiment, develops Soldiers to lead and train armored and reconnaissance organizations in unified land operations. The squadron is responsible for programs of instruction for the Army Reconnaissance Course, the M1A1/M1A2 and Stryker MGS Master Gunner courses, and the Cavalry Leader’s Course. The squadron also provides oversight for tank and Bradley New Equipment Training teams, which provide individual, crew and collective training in support of unit transition to the latest technology and Army combat systems.

The 1st Battalion, 29th Infantry Regiment, conducts Bradley, Stryker, Sniper, Combatives, Marksmanship and Heavy Weapons Leaders Course instruction. The unit conducts experimentation of emerging technologies and provides feedback of systems under consideration for acquisition/fielding to the force.
