Great thread and thought I would add to it by just giving an idea on how much manpower a training division would have based on descriptions I have found of the 84th Infantry Division when it was a pure training division (including the period of Twilight 2000)

It was described at 3000 men distributed among its 4 brigades as its normal size. Given that you have a wartime situation here you would figure that it may have grown by anywhere from 50 to 100% of its pre-wartime size by 7/2/98.

In the US Army Vehicle Guide it has a strength of 4000 men, a very reasonable number considering it had never seen combat except for security duties - i.e. you start with 3000 men, have it grow to perhaps 4500 to 5000 men by 7/2/98 and then thru either desertion or some losses to disease or minor combat reduced to 4000 by July of 2000.

The locations look good. I have worked with some of these units over the years and you've got the places the units were stationed dead on. Also, the conversion of some brigades to support/artillery looks good. Also, the battalions seem to have come from the right lineage, good research.

Something that I'm not too sure about is engineer battalions, cavalry squardrons, MI battalions, and aviation assets.

I can't see the army stripping corps level aviation units and giving them to LIDs. The assets were sure to be scarce and had to come from somewhere. In looking at the "corps" most of these divisions were in, the corps seemed to have not much more than an HQ and maybe a few long range guns or an engineer battalion.

Some of the divisions picked up tanks left over from deployed formations. Ideally, if I were an LID commander, i'd love to have at least a humvee or FAV motorized cav squardron so my division had 1 unit some some sort of mobility. Maybe they had some sort of combination where they are using one troop in hummers, a couple troops on horseback, and a platoon of M60A4s. I would see something like this done more by the initiative of the division commander than by a TO&E.

The engineers and MI bats also I'm not too sure about. Maybe what we are calling a "battalion" of engineers exists, in some sort of reduced capacity. Like civillian front end loaders and former civillian engineers and construction types. An MI battalion has all kinds of neat toys like radars, drones, analists, interregators, and so on. I just don't see that suddenly popping up and the army doesn't have a lot of them laying around as spares.

Support doesn't even appear in the TO&E for the US army vehicle guide. I don't have one infront of me, but I don't think Cav or aviation is on it.

The 100th Infantry Division was responsible for basic armor training and armored cav school training and was actually issued M1 tanks and M3 Bradleys. This would explain the number of tanks it still has by mid 2000 for sure. The 1st and the 3rd of the 398th were armor, not light infantry as depicted earlier in this thread

The 100th would have been one of the most effective of the training divisions, considering it would have been composed of training officers who were very adept at the use of tanks and armored vehicles in general and probably would have been able to give any Mexican regular army formation one heck of a fight.

While many of the training divisions did very poorly during the Twilight War they definitely would not have been.

Given their assignment they would most likely have had more tanks and armor than the vehicle guide gives them credit for - and especially given the fact that by 2000 they are at Fort Carson and most likely would have raided what was left by the 4th at Fort Collins.

Also given the composition of the division I would say that the Cadet Brigade is probably a much more effective force than they would have been otherwise. The 100th is the perfect unit to be able to turn a bunch of Air Force cadets with no infantry or tank training into an effective unit that would be able to keep the MilGov command area guarded against basically any threat that might come their way.
