5. CALL HANDBOOK # 18-37: THE ARMY COMBAT FITNESS TEST, SEP 18. From the Foreword by GEN Stephen J. Townsend, TRADOC CG: “Based on results of years of scientific study, the Secretary and Chief of Staff of the Army have directed replacement of the Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT). The six-event Army Combat Fitness Test (ACFT) was developed to better predict a Soldier’s readiness for the demands of the modern battlefield. This handbook is a compilation of products developed by the Center for Initial Military Training (CIMT) in preparation for the Army-wide implementation of the ACFT. The ACFT is in its initial stages and there will certainly be refinements as we receive feedback from the ACFT Field Test in Fiscal Year (FY) 2019. In the interim, this handbook provides commanders, leaders, and Soldiers with a single guide for preparing for and administering the ACFT in advance of Army-wide implementation in FY20.”  https://www.milsuite.mil/book/docs/DOC-549195
