That really depends on the specifics of the mission. If you're traversing ground which is too soft for a wheeled vehicle, then you'd want a tracked vehicle. If you have to cro…ss bodies of water, it would need to be an amphibious vehicle. If enemy armour is a threat, a vehicle like the M-2 Bradley, which has the capacity to launch TOW missiles, would be desirable. If speed is your focus, and you have usage of roadways, then a wheeled vehicle would certainly have advantages. What's best is all situation dependent.
A cavalry soldier is called a Trooper.
The Vietnam War was the first war that the US Army used the "basic" configuration that established the "armored cavalry" of today. During that war, the US Army Armored Cav uni…ts were deployed to Vietnam in Regiments (only one full regiment, the 11th ACR was deployed) and about 10 Armored Cav Squadrons, and a few armored Cav Troops (A, 4/12 Cav as one example). The Full regiment in Vietnam (11th ACR) consisted of 3 Sqd's, containing 3 or 4 ground troops (A, B, C) and and air troop (helicopters) and a tank company. Individual Armored Cav Sqd's consisted of about the same, MINUS the tank companies. Example: the full regiment had a company of 17 Patton tanks. The Sqd's did not. The typical Armored Cav Sqd consisted of about 3 ground troops and 1 air troop. The Troops (A, B, C,) consisted of M113 ACAVs and M551 Sheridan tanks (Armored Reconnaissance Assault Vehicles). The air troop usually consisted of UH-1 Iroquois, OH-6 Cayuse, AH-1 Cobras and OH-58 Kiowa helicopters. While the whole sqd was commanded by an LTC, the air troop was commanded by a MAJ, while the ground troops were commanded by a CPT. A full bird COL commanded the full regiment (the 11th ACR was commanded by COL George S. Patton, son of WWII Patton). Whenever you see photographs of Sheridans and ACAVs together in one Vietnam War photo, you're looking at a US Armored Cav picture.
