MAGTF Sustainability

Last Revised: February 26, 2015, 10:51 am

A fundamental characteristic of the MAGTF is its ability to operate for extended periods as an expeditionary force, and rely on integral combat logistics element and internal resources for sustainment. All MAGTFs have inherent sustainability that allows them to be self-sufficient for planned periods. Larger MAGTFs have a deeper, broader, and more capable organic support capability. MAGTFs of different sizes deploy with a sufficient amount of supplies to support joint operations. MAGTFs can augment their organic sustainability by using external support from U.S. Navy organizations, host nation support agreements, inter-service support agreements, and in-theater cross-service agreements.
