Support Command was a support formation of the New Zealand Army. It was active from 1984 to 1998. After the 1983 Defence Review the Armys command structure was adjusted to distinguish more clearly the separate roles of operations and base support training. There was an internal reorganisation within the Army General Staff, and New Zealand Land Forces Command at Byron Avenue in Takapuna, North Shore, was split into a Land Force Command and a Support Command. Support Command from then on comprised three elements, the Army Training Group in Waiouru, the Force Maintenance Group (FMG) based in Linton, and Base Area Wellington (BAW) based in Trentham, and assumed responsibility for individual training, third line logistics and base support. The Force Maintenance Group of 19 units was designed to provide logistical support to both the Rapid Reaction Force (a battalion plus group) and the Integrated Expansion Force (brigade sized).
