 -Expect enemy fire support from 122mm Regimental artillery.

 A Troop tanks will advance rapidly north on RTE Nevada, using our superior night vision capabilities to engage and destroy enemy armor at range.
 We intend to locate and destroy enemy tanks and BMP's in low light before lighting conditions improve; denying the enemy the ability to respond to our fire.
  A Troop tanks will identify and bypass enemy infantry and hand off targeting to the scouts. 
 
 A Troop scout units will isolate and destroy enemy infantry with artillery and air support.
 
 A Troop ITV's will provide overwatch for the scouts and use thermals to assist in locating the enemy.
 
 A Troop will consolidate at Obj Reno and create a 1 Km zone free of enemy units.
          
  i) Maneuver: 
 
   1st and 3rd Plt will lead the advance across the Ely and Vegas bridges and across the FLOT. A Troop tanks will then advance quickly to Obj Reno.
 
   2nd and 4th platoons will follow.
 
   
  ii) Fires: 
 
   A Troop tanks will engage and destroy enemy armor. 
 
   Priority for artillery and air support is to destroy enemy infantry in the open and destroy enemy artillery if located.
 
   FO's and CO will have fire priority. TRPs for fire support are as follows: 
 
   AA001-AA006

I'll take a tank please.

 

And, just to nit pick,  it should be A Troop ( or Troop A or A Trp.).

Cavalry platoons in this time frame had nine vehicles numbered from "0"-"8."

The tanks were "4," "5," '7," and "8."  The Scouts were "0"- "3" and the platoon leader was "6."

At least in the units I served in.
