    Cadet Delahanty tells me the changes have been announced:

    Rowing thingamajig to replace situps
    Shuttle run and broad jump to be added (on a pass-fail basis)
    2 mile run remains
    Pushups remain (not replaced by pullups)

    Overall, he's happy with the incremental changes

    Those changes were tentatively announced over a year ago, but I was under the impression they're still very much up in the air. The SMA as recently as two weeks ago proposed a 4 mile run and 12 mile ruck march be added.

    Has there been an official announcement that the test has been finalized to include rowers, a shuttle run and broad jump? I couldn't find anything, but my google-fu isn't awake yet.

    Source was "some guy in the Army Times", so caveat lector

    I'm sure we'll see an official release from DA soon. Senior leaders made their final recommendations at the end of last month, when the SMA suggested the 4 mile run and 12 ruck, and they were to make a final decision around this time.
