This manual establishes Army doctrine for operations in a nuclear environment and details the doctrine for integrating nuclear consideration into all other aspects of the battlefield. It also describes the Army's role in nominating tragets at corps and above levels and protecting the force from the effects of a nuclear weapons detonation. Nuclear employment in a theater of operations has theater strategic, operational, and tactical results; execution has national strategic implications. The corps' role is to function at either the tactical or operational levels of war. At the tactical level, the corps accomplishes missions as Field Manual (FM) 199-15 describes. At the operational level, when directed and augmented, the corps functions as either the Army force (ARFOR), the joint force land component command (JFLCC), or a joint task force (JTF). By viewing the corps in its many possible roles, the reader can also discern nuclear procedures for echelons above corps (EAC) and joint missions. This manual can help educate and train commanders and staff at corps and operations levels in nuclear operations and educate and train divisions in nuclear force protection. It is used with Joint Publications (JP) 3-12.1, 3-12.2 (SRD), or 3-12.3 and serves as the bridge between joint and Army doctrine. It is also uses with FM 25-50, which contains training doctrine for nuclear survivability.
