The 11th ACR substituted three Sheridans for two M113 Armored Cavalry Vehicles (ACAVs) in one of three scout sections per armored cavalry platoon. While this arrangement decreased the number of dismounted scouts in the sections, it substantially increased their firepower. In reality, the units often deployed Sheridans from one section with several ACAVs from other sections to create a mixed force. The bee-hive round proved to be the most popular projectile in the Sheridan’s arsenal; in the first three months of combat, the Sheridans fired 1,461 rounds of bee-hive compared to 350 rounds of M409 HEAT as well as 431,000 rounds of machine-gun ammunition.

In March 2004, the Army approved the transfer of four of the M8 AGS in storage to Ft Bragg for further examination of airborne armor requirements.
