About This File

Overview.

 

The purpose of these Fictional Threat Templates is to provide a capable, realistic OPFOR task organization that can be rapidly placed into new scenarios to assist with mission creation. These templates may be edited as appropriate to provide the correct level of challenge for the intended tactical problem. While these formations may have similar aspects to real world military formations, they are not intended to accurately and exactly replicate any specific country's past, or current task organizations. These organizations are built based on formations from the Decisive Action Training Environment (DATE,) OPFOR force structure at US Army Combat Training Centers (CTCs,) and from the author's own imagination.

Donovia - Mechanized Infantry Battalion Detachment (BDET) - Action Element (Tier 2)

 

The idea behind this fictional template is to depict a Russian-style modern Battalion-sized element that can be readily incorporated into scenarios to present a capable and realistic OPFOR. The Donovian Mechanized Infantry BDET (Tier 2) is based around a BMP-3 and T-90 formation that has been designated as the Action Element of it's higher HQ, a Brigade Tactical Group (BTG). This element is expected to accomplish the BTG's primary task and purpose, and therefor has been task organized with additional attachments to increase its combat power to provide a perceived overmatch versus BLUFOR. For a greater (though less realistic) challenge, see the Tier 1 variant of this formation. The equipment within this unit template enables it to fight effectively during conditions of limited visibility.

NOTES:
 * Task Organization reflects a typical Donovian Mechnized Infantry Battalion Detachment assigned as the Action Element of the higher BTG.
 * Action Elements denote the Decisive Operation in OPFOR doctrine. This BDET is equipped to accomplish its higher HQ's task and purpose.  
 * Donovian doctrine calls for maintaining a 3:1 ratio of indirect fires compared to BLUEFOR; OPFOR will strive for a 5:1 ratio.
 * 3x Artillery Batteries are depicted "on the map." These may be replicated through using off-map artillery support. 
 * The majority of support assets are not depicted for simplicity; Support Platoons provided are for basic continuation of combat operations.
 * The Dingo 2A2s are used as a stand-in for GAZ Tigrs. 
 * Due to the lack of towed AT Guns modeled, the YPR-765 prat is substituted to provide a similar capability. 
 * Hind-24Vs are depicted without troops. This supports Donovian doctrine's primary use for them as attack aviation.
 * The Weapons Company is an amalgamation of several Platoons that fall directly under the BDET HQ. This is done for easy of identification.
 * The Weapons Company is not intended to fight organically. Its assets will be attached to other elements as required by task and purpose. 

 * This formation is designed to be able to fight effectively at night.

Donovia - Mechanized Infantry Battalion Detachment (BDET) - Action Element (Tier 1)

 

The idea behind this fictional template is to depict a Russian-style modern Battalion-sized element that can be readily incorporated into scenarios to present a capable and realistic OPFOR. The Donovian Mechanized Infantry BDET (Tier 1) is based around a T-15 and T-14 formation that has been designated as the Action Element of it's higher HQ, a Brigade Tactical Group (BTG). This element is expected to accomplish the BTG's primary task and purpose, and therefor has been task organized with additional attachments to increase its combat power to provide a perceived overmatch versus BLUFOR. This element is equipped with APS, and has the "best of the best" equipment and ammunition that is currently offered by the Russian Federation. This element is provided to serve as a greater challenge; the Tier 2 variant of this unit template is much more likely to be fielded at the quantity depicted here. The equipment within this unit template enables it to fight effectively during conditions of limited visibility.

NOTES:
 * This formation reflects a hypothetical "Tier 1" formation based around the T-14 and T-15 platform with APS installed. 
 * Task Organization reflects a typical Donovian Mechnized Infantry Battalion Detachment assigned as the Action Element of the higher BTG.
 * Action Elements denote the Decisive Operation in OPFOR doctrine. This BDET is equipped to accomplish its higher HQ's task and purpose.  
 * Donovian doctrine calls for maintaining a 3:1 ratio of indirect fires compared to BLUEFOR; OPFOR will strive for a 5:1 ratio.
 * 3x Artillery Batteries are depicted "on the map." These may be replicated through using off-map artillery support. 
 * The majority of support assets are not depicted for simplicity; Support Platoons provided are for basic continuation of combat operations.

 * Hind-24Vs are depicted without troops. This supports Donovian doctrine's primary use for them as attack aviation.
 * The Weapons Company is an amalgamation of several Platoons that fall directly under the BDET HQ. This is done for easy of identification.
 * The Weapons Company is not intended to fight organically. Its assets will be attached to other elements as required by task and purpose. 
 * This formation is designed to be able to fight effectively at night.

Olvana - Heavy Combined Arms Battalion Detachment (BDET) - Action Element (Tier 2)

 

The idea behind this fictional template is to depict a Chinese-style modern Battalion-sized element that can be readily incorporated into scenarios to present a capable and realistic OPFOR. The Olvanan Heavy Combined Arms BDET (Tier 2) is based around a equal-parts BMP-3 and T-90 formation that has been designated as the Action Element of it's higher HQ, a Brigade Tactical Group (BTG). This element is expected to accomplish the BTG's primary task and purpose, and therefor has been task organized with additional attachments to increase its combat power to provide a perceived overmatch versus BLUFOR. Compared to a Donovian BDET, this formation lacks the overmatch in indirect fires, does not have attack aviation available, and trades the mobility of a Light Recon Platoon for an enlarged Heavy Recon Platoon. This formation is roughly based on the new Chinese-style task organization in a similar manner to an American Brigade Combat Team. The equipment within this unit template enables it to fight effectively during conditions of limited visibility.

Planned Future Content:

 

1. A Tier 2 African-style Motorized Battalion, augmented with tanks, roughly based on Angolan Army formations from the mid 1980s. 

2. A Tier 2 South American Combined Arms Battalion meant to represent a more Western-influenced regional power. 

3. Insurgents, Paramilitary Forces, and Militias. 

4. Tier 3/4 variations of all of the above to provide more "historic" options for late-Cold War style scenarios.
