Do any of your people know if there is any order to the way vehicles are positioned in a mixed armored column (if there is such a thing)? Do tanks go first, BMPs last, etc? What about self-propelled arty? Do airdefences, such as SA-13 accompany the column? I know that in Afghan and both Chechen wars ZSU-23-4 Shilkas were put at the start of the column not for airdefence, but because they were the most effective way to return fire when ambushed by guerrilas.

Let's see if this transfers OK. Your point is correct...formations should be built depending on the threat.
