  1. http://coldwardecoded.blogspot.dk/search/label/Battle%20Plans Also recommend this site for some extra Cold War goodies. It is linked to on the Cold War Gamer site. But yeah, Cold War Gamer might be THE definite page for CW info. :luxhello:
  2. AT-4 Spigot. Fits more with the range, penetration and controls.
  3. http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=3441322 Handy tools for those wanting to see the battlefields of World War 3. Showing borders, corps borders and the scenarios in FC:RS. Can also be used along with SBmaps.kmz for visualizing a scenario in Steel Beasts PRO PE. It is found in the Docs folder. :heu:
  4. http://www.mil.be/cav/subject/index.asp?LAN=nl&FILE=subjectmenu&ID=1991 Might be useful for those making scenarios depicting Belgian units.
  5. Did you use all the slots in each company. I have gone away from using 1/A, 2/A, 3/A, CO/A instead to use 1/A 2/A 3/A 4/A (Simulating the CO), 5/A 6/A 7/A 8/A (CO) etc. all the way to the Battalion commander who is CO/A instead of the company commander. Then you have a battalion for each company with nearly all slots in each company used. That's 9 battalions A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H,I,J,K,L,M for 3 regiments but yeah, as I write this I can see that might be too little for so many units. But then you can always create a new side and repeat the process :bigsmile: PM sent, I might be happy with some recce/recon Question? Were the map in First Clash based on any real location? I know Rastatt is part of the terrain but after thoroughly looking at the area, I can see that the cities don't line up as on the map in the book, so it looked like a fictional account of the map. Any info on that? is that true?
  6. 9M22D? Can't seem to find any information on it, other than the german wiki, so I'm going with: Thermobaric? Leaflet something IIRC?
  7. IIRC, a CRP could also include units from the regimental Recon Company or even the divisional Reconnaissance Battalion, depending on the situation.
  8. http://www.orbat85.nl/reference/unit-organisation-and-equipment.html#verkbat Of interesting note, mostly for myself since I'm quite interested in how the reconnaissance units in different countries operate, is the different task organisations for the Dutch Reconnaissance Battalion (Het verkenningsbataljon (Verkbat): Regular, POSO and EOSO. Regular divides the units into platoons with 4 M113C&V and 2 Tanks, while POSO collects them into platoons of 7 M113C&V and a single 6-tank platoon for the Leopard 1Vs. EOSO does it even further and collects all the tanks into a squadron of 18 tanks. Interesting options, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. Do you want to punch with the fingers spread or a closed fist? :sonic:
  9. http://www.orbat85.nl/ Comprehensive information regarding planning, tactics, organisation etc. of the Dutch Army during the 1980's. Especially useful since we have the Leopard 1V now and a reskinned version of the YPR. :biggrin: Check it out!
  10. So that's how you destroy an old and respected tank AND an old and respected franchise? :decu:
  11. Katie's ancestors was in the Baltic, Finland and I think Russia, plundering, killing and being generally uncivilized. :diable: We, the real Vikings on the other hand, were more civilized, giving you Danelaw and everything, whilst taking your women and doing the more occasional plundering and killing. Happy 4th of July by the way! :biggrin:
  12. Thanks Duke! I might consider, I'll send a PM if it so happens.
  13. Gentlemen, you had my curiosity. But now you have my attention. Thank you Esim.
  14. 1983, NZ vs North Korea or something similar?? Cool, sounds awesome. Can't wait to try it.
  15. I'll see if I can get some friends over to see the show. And If they won't, I'll just go myself Look's like a lot of fun!
  16. I have uploaded it to the official army site on facebook. Written some stuff about what the new version is going to include etc.
  17. Panzerleader, I would recommend, like Ssnake, to use it with Polish Forces instead. It's more historically plausible that they were used for the Invasion of Denmark and it's easier to do. Here is a screenshot of the OOB from Danube Front 85'. The author behind is Tazzaron, who spend a lot of time, putting this OOB in the game. It's part of his modded Scenario called Bolt out of the Blue, which I would recommend to anyone who is Cold War fanatic and know the game. His sources are amongst others, the OOB from MicroArmorMayhem, which I would also recommend, since it's highly detailed and is a compilation from many different authors. It's the 7. Landing Division from the Polish Army and were, in the game and possibly in real life, marked for a seaborne invasion in Denmark, either on Jutland or maybe on one of the Islands, Funen or Zealand. As you can see, it has 3 Battalions, 4, 34, and 35. Each is equipped with TOPAS-2AP (BTR-50) and a recon unit of 10 PT-76's. It also has the 11. tank Battalion of 40 PT-76. It also has ATGM units and artillery units etc. Since we have all these units, the TOPAS-2AP is mostly a BTR-50 with modifications and artillery can be simulated, you should be able to use this in a 1989 scenario. The Leopard 1A5DK could be used as a stand-in for the 1A3, I don't think, it makes a big difference, whether it's a 1A3 or 1A5. Although I would recommend that we get an M41 Patton on The_List *Hail Hail Hail* since it was used in the recon units. There are some pictures on wikipedia of the units involved: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OT-62_TOPAS As I said, a BTR-50 with some modifications Just a suggestion, if you wanted it I have another Screenshot now of the 336 Naval Infantry Brigade of the Soviet Army. It's comprised of 6 battalions: 887 recon battalion, 26 PT-76's 877, BTR-80's 878, BTR-80's 884, BTR-60's 879, landing battalion, paratroopers, I believe they are supposed to be dropped inland. 112 Tank Battalion, T-55AM's This Brigade is also supposed to be used in an amphibious assault, but I don't know where, possibly Zealand or maybe Jutland. As you can see, since we only have T-55's, the T-55AM (or is it AD?) would have to have T-72's as stand-in, maybe even the upcoming T-72BV. ScreenShot008.rar ScreenShot009.rar
  18. I seem to be mistaken, sorry. I have my own version of the 1991 and the 1984 version. I'll post it later so we can see which is the correct version.
  19. I have heard there seem to be some problems with Glantz. :confused: Something with him favouring the Soviet side compared to the German side. I consider him to be one hell of an military historian and I haven't experienced what other people are talking about. What is the prevailing opinion regarding him?
  20. Yes. In theory. In reality, it would have been different and some divisions were probably equipped with 3 BTR regiments. The TOE also says that every BMP regiment would have an SPA Battalion of 2S1 Gvozdika but I would guess in real life, some of the Category B and C divisions would instead be equipped with towed artillery like the D-30. The D-30 is in theory only supposed to equipped in the BTR regiments though. They would have wanted them all to be equipped with 2+1+1, BTR+BMP+ Tank but if you don't have the right numbers to fill them up, it is of course not possible to do that. http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/library/policy/army/accp/is3003/fig1-14.gif TOE (or is it an OOB?) for a Soviet Motorized Rifle Division. http://www.steelbeasts.com/Downloads/p13_sectionid/19/p13_fileid/2151 For more interest, look here. Panzer Leader posted it and it is IMO the holy grail of Soviet OOBs and TOEs of the 1980's. Although it is not the 1991 version like it says, but the 1984 version. Any opinion on which version would be the most accurate?
  21. Stop it Volcano, you know you shouldn't mess with people's feelings. Giving them false hope and all. :frown: :biggrin:
  22. Nr. 6, Swingfire missile? Nice shots Hedge, looks like a lot of fun :drink:
