New in 2019: From tanks to Strykers, major brigade combat team conversions are coming this year
By: Todd South   

Just as the Army shifted from a division-level focus to “modular” brigade combats teams early in the Iraq war for post-9/11 combat, the service has begun changes to the existing BCTs to pivot back to the near-peer fight.

This year will bring more of the changes that have been ongoing in recent years as a Stryker BCT morphs into an armored BCT.

The 1st Armored Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team at Fort Bliss, Texas, will convert from Stryker to armored in 2019.
