Abstract : This monograph examines the feasibility of logistically supporting a heavy division-sized force conducting deep maneuver. Historically, deep maneuver forces have performed such missions as raids to cut enemy supply lines and command and control facilities, exploitations, pursuits, and attacks against enemy operational reserves. The Achilles heal, however, has often been the inability of deep maneuver forces to sustain themselves. A recent concept, called digitization of the battlefield, offers promise in addressing some of the sustainment challenges. This monograph examines the support requirements for such a force and how deep forces may benefit from the use of digital technology and other logistically enhancing tools.
