Prior to war in Iraq US army conducted a number of tests in Poland in "Pustynia Błędowska" (same place Rommel trained his Africa Corpse), the Polish army which used similar equipment (slightly more modern) was in an OPFOR role.
Out of 7 scenarios Americans managed to win only 3, in all cases the loses were extreme, it shows the importance of training, command and communication over equipment, an army with third rate equipment but first rate training/command structure can still be a mean enemy, Iraqis were just a bunch of conscripts.
Are you referring to the Reforager Exercises? That was training for a different era under different conditions. Not only was the US Army at a time of low personnel and recruitment, but the bulk of armor was the M60 Series MBT, at that point in time the Army was undergoing a very big transformation, the M1 steel pot was still in issue.
All about nuclear war and mass armor confrontation.
