The Cavalry Journal was originally created by Cavalry officers on the American frontier as a forum for discussing doctrine, tactics and equipment among soldiers geographically separated by the great distances of the American West. With the creation of the U.S. armored forces in 1940,[1] The Cavalry Journal was renamed to Armor, the Magazine of Mobile Warfare. Prior to 1974, the Armor Association, a private organization, published the magazine, but the U.S. Army Armor School began publishing ARMOR as of the March-April 1974 edition. The publication is now a professional bulletin published under the authority of Army Regulation 25–30. Its current name is ARMOR, subtitled Mounted Maneuver Journal.
