The current plan for tanks, BFVs, and CS/CSS equipment was reviewed for FY 88-91. Cost estimates for the current plan and alternatives to the current plan were developed. Potential cost savings ant training benefits with respect to transporting or prepositioning M1A1s, BFVs, and CS/CSS equipment were identified.
