In principle this is akin to the German Kampfgruppen sticky already running in the Wehrmacht at War & Peace, in that it's purpose is to record the US Army "Task Force". Which were in principle the same as German KG & British "Force" groupings, wherby several disperate units were thrown together to undertake a specific task, and after completion the units returned to there regular command formations.
