177th Armored Brigade


177th Armored Brigade (Combined Arms Training Brigade) conducts prioritized Advise, Assist and Training Operations with our partners through multi-component integrated collective training, in order to achieve Department of the Army and First Army readiness objectives. On order, conduct Mobilization Force Generation Installation operations at Camp Shelby, Mississippi, or any other directed installation.


We are a disciplined, tenacious, and highly trained team of teams that specializes in generating readiness with our Reserve Component Partners by building and sustaining relationships, professional expertise and mission prioritization. One Team - Indivisible.


Enable our Reserve Component Partners to generate and sustain readiness in order to reduce the number of post-mobilization days and, when required, mobilize and deliver a Partner that can deploy and successfully support combatant commander requirements.
