US ARMY NATIONAL GUARD Note 1: The US Army National Guard had various levels of readiness with many of the units equipped with first line equipment such as M1 tanks and AH64 Apache helicopters. The roundout Brigades and Battalions assigned to an active duty unit had a 30 day mobilization requirement and were equipped similarly to their active duty counterpart. The 49th and 50th Armored, 35th and 40th Mech, and 29th Light Infantry National Guard Divisions along with several of the separate brigades had wartime contingencies in support of NATO and were organized under the Division 86 TO&E. The remaining National Guard units were still task organized under the former ROAD TO&E. Most of the separate Brigades were Divisions at one time and could easily reform with other Guard units to bring up to Divisional strength.
Note 2: According to the Army’s Historical Summary for 1989, Guard divisions would have required between 25 and 50 days of training and organizing following mobilization to be ready to deploy, while separate brigades would have required 25-40 days of training and organizing.
Note 3: According to the Army’s Historical Summary for 1989, 80 percent of Guard brigades and divisions were at the top readiness levels. Units with lower readiness included the 50th Armored Division and the 27th Infantry Brigade (NY National Guard). The 27th was apparently having difficulty recruiting manpower with the appropriate skills. The 163rd Armored Brigade was also not considered fully ready, as it was undergoing reorganization.
Note 4: The Army National Guard had 467,000 personnel assigned in 1989, a shortfall of several hundred personnel.
