    • IBCT Mission and Operational Context BCT Mission: Disrupt or destroy enemy forces, control land areas including populations and resources and conduct combat operations to protect US national interests. (SRC 77300R400) IBCTs: • Operate as part of a joint force • Conduct Unified Land Operations under mission cmd of Div and Corps • Depend on joint and Echelons Above Brigade assets (Joint Operational Access Concept; AOC; Mvmt & Mnvr Functional Concept) IBCT Standardized METL (Apr 13) Current FDUs The IBCT’s ability to deploy rapidly and operate in complex terrain distinguish it from other brigade combat teams. Derived from FM 3-90.6, The Bde Cbt Tm & TRADOC Pam 525-3-6 Mvmt & Mnvr Concept * Subject to change pending approval of CAV SQDN FDU 2020 Design 19
