PURPOSE
FM 3-90 introduces the basic concepts and control measures
associated with the art of tactics. It cannot be read in
isolation. To understand FM 3-90, the reader must understand
the operational art, principles of war, and links between the
operational and tactical levels of war described in FM 3-0,
Operations. He should understand how the activities described
in FM 3-07, Stability Operations and Support Operations,
carry over and affect offensive and defensive operations and
vice versa. He should understand the operations (plan,
prepare, execute, and assess) process described in FM 6-0,
Command and Control, and how that process relates to the
military decision making process and troop-leading
procedures described in FM 5-0, Army Planning and Orders
Production. FM 3-90 also refers to joint publications (JPs).
Reviewing referenced JPs will also aid in understanding FM 3-
90.

FM 3-90 focuses on the tactics used to employ available
means to win in combat. Those tactics require judgment in
application. The ability to seize and secure terrain, with its
populations and productive capacity, distinguishes land forces
conducting decisive offensive and defensive operations. FM 3-
90 provides a common discussion of how commanders from
the battalion task force level through the corps echelon
conduct tactical offensive and defensive operations and their
supporting tactical enabling operations. It is not prescriptive,
but authoritative.

Tactical fundamentals do not change with the fielding of each
FM 3-90 Preface new piece of equipment. However, the integration
of new equipment and organizations usually requires changes in
related techniques and procedures. FM 3-90 provides
guidance in the form of combat-tested concepts and ideas
modified to exploit emerging Army and joint capabilities.

SCOPE
FM 3-90 focuses on the organization of forces, minimum
essential control measures, and general planning,
preparation, and execution considerations for each type and
form of combat operation. It is the common reference for all
students of the tactical art, both in the field and the Army
school system. A family of subordinate manuals address the
techniques and procedures used by tactical combat forces at
each echelon.
