I am interested in the Soviet Union's Air Assault capabilities during the Afghan War. I have found some good information at the Battalion Level for the TO&E from FM 100-2-3, and some information on specific weapon systems at the company level from here: http://coldwargamer.blogspot.in/2012/12/orbat-soviet-air-assault-capability.html?m=1 I am curious about approximately the number of Troops in an Infantry Air Assault Company. I am guessing about 70 or so, but I wanted to see if I could get confirmation. Also, was the equipment used in Afghanistan different from the standard Cold War loadout? I am guessing that air-lifting BMDs was not that common.
