FM Interim (FMI) 3-0.1, The Modular Force (28 January 2008), lays out changes to the modular force structure as the Army transforms. Modular force symbols, designations, and subordinate modular brigade structures and modular force sustainment concepts have been updated. Emerging concepts for Army force generation and readiness were added, and the Army's "full spectrum operations" concept was incorportated. FMI 3-0.1 discusses joint sustainment operations and their benefits to all services and the Army's capability to attach individual units to other service branches without interference from higher Army headquarters. The FMI also lays out the groundwork of sustainment brigades, which provide consolidated functions previously performed by corps and division support commands. FMI 3-0.1 does not supersede existing Army operational or tactical doctrine, but it does offer modifications to basic concepts found in 3-- series field manuals.
FM 3-04.1113, Utility and Cargo Helicopter Operations (7 December 2007), describes operational concepts for general support aviation battalions (GSABs) and assault helicopter battalions (AHBs). The GSAB's primary missions include air movement of supplies, equipment, and personnel, including logistics over-the-shore operations when applicable; aeromedical evacuation; command and control support; and air traffic services.
FM 3-11.21, Multiservice Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures for Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear Consequence Management Operations (1 April 2008), is designed for chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) responders who plan and conduct consequence management in domestic, foreign, or theater operational environments. This multiservice publication incorporates consequence management guidance and framework identified in Joint Publication (JP) 3-40 and 3-41. The guidance in the JPs did not exist when the previous manual was written.
FM 3-21.75, The Warrior Ethos and Soldier Combat Skills (28 January 2008), adds new information for the individual Soldier's skill set. The introduction explains the operational environment, the Army values, the Warrior Ethos, the law of land warfare, warrior culture, battle drill, and warrior drills. A chapter on individual readiness has been added to make Soldiers aware of predeployment procedures and proper maintenance of weapons in extreme environments. The Army has also added a chapter on unexploded ordinance and improvised explosive devices (IEDs), the threats they pose, and proper procedures used to identify, report and isolate them.
