Now each of the combat brigades comprises:
- Brigade headquarters
- An armoured cavalry regiment (each equipped with M1A1 tanks, and two squadrons od ASLAVs).
- Two infantry battalions (with PMV or M113AS4)
- One artillery regiment
- One combat engineer regiment
- One combat signal regiment
- One combat service support battalion
Each of the three combat brigades rotate through a 36-month-long readiness cycle, comprising three 12-month phases. This cycle comprises a 'reset' phase during which the brigade's soldiers conduct individual training, a 'readying' phase in which the brigade's units prepare for combat operations, and a 'ready' phase in which the certified brigade is available to deploy on any required domestic or overseas operations.
The 2nd Battalion, The Royal Australian Regiment (2 RAR), is now under command of Headquarters 1st Division.
Plan Beersheba will ensure that Army can continue to contribute forces to overseas operations as well as successfully transition to a force that maintains high levels of readiness to respond to the range of Australia's Defence needs in the future.
