From: My Mother, although my Father had some small part.
Three ground squadrons each with 3 troops of cavalry, 1 tank company, 1 how battery of 155mm M109s.
The troops had 2 platoons with 4 tanks (M60, then M1) controlled by the platoon sergeant, the scouts had 2 dragon equipped M113s and 2 M901 ITVs with TOWs plus one M113 for the platoon leader. Later, the scouts were put into 2 platoons and the tankers were put into 2 platoons with the same number of vehicles overall. The hq platoon had a GSR M113 and 3 M113 series with 4.2" mortars. The M113s and M901 ITVs were later replaced with Bradleys.
That is without the stinger platoon at HQ troop with any other support. The regiment also had a combat engineering company. Not to mention an Air squadron with Cobras and Kiowas. There were even Air Farce people assigned to call in their people to play with the Soviets.
In the Bekaa Valley in 1982, one M60a1 destroyed 9 T72s starting at a range of 4000 meters with 9 rounds fired. Of course, that was an Israeli sniper tank.

All told, that is 53 tanks per ground squadron. A three tank company battalion is 51 tanks. Not to mention the M113/M901s which were then replaced by Bradleys. Each Bradley would have a scout team, not a squad. The three troops had a total of 9 4.2" mortars. That is a little bit of firepower.
M113s would be great for moose hunting. They are supposed to float and usually carry a Ma Deuce.
Seek peace but keep your gun handy.
I'm not a complete idiot, some parts are missing!
