Global ORBAT and TO&E Thread

Recommended Posts

The purpose of this thread is to provide scenario designers with a reference for quickly finding templates for various military echelons on a global scale. Ultimately, I envision this having a table of contents on this post where a scenario designer can click and be taken directly to a template download for the country, organization, and echelon of their choice. The initial emphasis is having close approximations in accuracy for combat power at the Company level, with a workable sustainment package sufficient to maintain combat power.

US - Armored Brigade Combat Team Reconnaissance Troop

 

Combat strength: 
      14x M3A2 CFVs
      11x Scout Teams
      2x Javelin Teams
      1x FO Team

 

Organization:
      2x Scout Platoons consisting of:
         6x M3A2 CFVs with 4x Scout Teams and 2x Javelin Teams
      1x Mortar Platoon consisting of:
         2x M1064 Mortar Carriers
      1x Headquarters Platoon consisting of:
         2x M3A2 CFV (CO and FO)
         1x M577 (XO)
         1x M113A3 (1SG)
         1x M977 HEMTT (Supply)
     1x Medic M113A3 (Troop Medics)
     1x M88A1 (Combat Repair Team)

 

NOTES:
 * Current US Army MTOE uses the M2A3 BFV; the M3A2 was selected as a suitable substitution.
 * The FO's M3A2 CFV may be substituted for an M981 FISTV to trade firepower for optics. 
 * Ammunition quantities do not match the real world equiviliant. This was a deliberate decision to emphasize fun over realism.
 * The XO actually uses an M1068; the M577 is suitable substitution.
 * Scout Teams have been equipped with the JIM-LR. 
 * The 2 and 3 element in each Recon Platoon have the Javelin Teams.

 * US Tank Companies use the M88A2; the M88A1 is an appropriate substitution.

As far as Canada goes , I'm finding it difficult to get accurate info. I'll provide stuff I've pieced together. If someone (Who really knows, I won't mention names Lol !) can provide more accurate info my post can be edited or deleted by devs.

This is just to get things started. 

 

Canadian Reece troop (Not sure how this is attached to larger units.)

4x2 = 8 total  Bison ((Use Piranha H in game- also has RWS versions (40mm gl ) ?) - Replaced/ing ? with TAPV ?

 

Tank Squadron - 4x4(Platoons) total 16 tanks - Leopard 4 or 6 plus 2x1 Leopards as HQ - Total 19  plus/incl 1 dozer ?

 

Infantry Company - 4x4=16 total Lav 6 (Use NZLAV in game) + 2x1 HQ Total 19 Lavs

Weapons detachment(Attached to each platoon) - 1 GPMG team, 1 Gustav /M-72 team, 1 60 mm mortar team still ?

Infantry section = 11 troops (Including 3 LAV crew). 1 GPMG (possibly 2) , 1-M72, c7/8

 

Engineer field section (Attached to Squadron HQ ?)

 2 Engineer vehicles (Kodiak AEV) (used to use Badger)

 

A1 Echelon (Attaches to Squadron HQ ?)

1 LAV

2 Ammo trucks

2 Fuel trucks

2 general stores trucks

2 Mine rollers - tanks ?

1 MRT

1 ARV

2 Ambulance (ASLAV Medic in game ? )

1 sig tech truck

1 FCS tech truck

Dozers QTY ?

 

Notes: Where I did not provide types of equipment - I'm just not sure. 

Canada also uses Tow BGM-71, AT-4 (JTF2) and Spike LR (CANSOFCOM), also uses Eryx - not in game

How these are applied or attached I do not know - (Perhaps as part of an Antitank platoon or Company as far as TOW is concerned ? )

Canada does not appear to have any anti-aircraft defenses. Did use ADATS  til 2011

Canada uses 81 mm mortars - Perhaps attached to the Company or Battalion HQ's ?

Canada uses the M777 towed artillery piece and used to use the M109. Don't know how they would be distributed for game purposes.

I think Canada still uses an 105mm Towed as well.

Canada also uses or has used the RG-31.

Also the BV206.

Gustav Mk3 for regulars

Gustav MK 2 for reserve.

Canada uses the CH-146 Griffon - is in game and did lease the Mi-8 for a period, now the Chinook.

40 mm AGL teams are used, not sure how they are distributed,

Various U.S. sniper rifles, TAC-50, Barrett etc. Don't know how the teams are assigned.

ST 17-1-1 circa 1981:


                                                 INTRODUCTION

     The purpose of this text is to provide a reference handbook for students and 
instructors of the US Army Armor School, nonresident students, instructors at 
other service schools, and the US Army advisors to Armor units in the field.  
It contains data on organizations, details of equipment, and tables pertinent to 
armor operations.

     The text reflects organizations of division level and below, as listed in 
Department of the Army Tables of Organization and Equipment, with changes 
available at time of preparation.

     The ARMOR REFERENCE DATA has been prepared by the US Army Armor 
School.  It reflects the current thought of this School and conforms to published 
Department of Army doctrine as closely as possible. ...


                                             MOUNTED COMBAT

     That element of tactical operations which involves tactical maneuver forces
while mounted in either ground combat vehicles or armed Army aircraft as the 
principal means of accomplishing a land force mission.  Mounted combat is 
normally conducted with a force that includes tanks, armored cavalry, air 
cavalry, attack helicopters, and mechanized forces supported on the battlefield 
by mobile artillery and engineers and by a mobile combat service support system.

                                             TANK BATTALION 
                ARMORED, MECHANIZED, AND INFANTRY DIVISIONS

Mission.  To close with and destroy enemy forces using fire, maneuver, and 
               shock effect.

                                                    TOE 17-35H

ASSIGNMENT.  Organic to:
a.  Armored Division, TOE 17.
b.  Infantry Division, TOE 7.
c.  Infantry Division (M), TOE 37.
d.  Separate Armored Brigade, TOE 17-100.
e.  Separate Infantry Brigade, TOE 7-100.
f.  Separate Infantry Brigade (M), TOE 37-100.

 

CAPABILITIES:
a.  Conducts operations requiring a high degree of firepower, mobility, armor 
    protection, and chock effect.
b.  Attacks or counterattacks under hostile fire.
c.  Destroys enemy armor by fire.
d.  Organizes, commands, and controls combined arms teams through cross-
     attachment with infantry or mechanized infantry, to engage the enemy with fire, 
     maneuver, and shock effect.
e.  Provides the mobility, armor protection, firepower, and flexible communications 
     to successfully exploit the effects of nuclear and nonnuclear fire support.
f.  Conducts combat operations under limited visibility conditions employing night 
     viewing devices.

 * Scout Teams have been equipped with the JIM-LR. 
 * The 2 and 3 element in each Recon Platoon have the Javelin Teams.
 * The Squadron S3 is normally identified by "33" as his callsign; 65 is used to enable better fidelity at the Troop level. 
 * The Squadron Staff, Squadron Aid Station, and the Forward Support Company are not modeled in this template.

 

Recommended callsign template:
     US battalion 
        * change "HHC" to "HHT" to match current US Cavalry naming conventions.

Here is a set of templates for a US Armored Cavalry Squadron of Armored and Mechanized Divisions

and Troops for separate Armored and Mechanized Brigades. 

 

I've included two different versions to represent the earlier version with M113 TOWs, late '70s to early '80s, 

and a later version with M901 ITVs which were introduced in the late '70s mostly in Europe.

Can you edit this post to include the template file? It'll make it easier for there to be a one-stop-shop to find the order of battle and the template using the base table of contents.

I did these some time ago but I had trouble. Something to do with not being able to break down the Gustav/mg teams. I figured a way around it but the call signs seem messed up.

If anyone wants to fix please go ahead.

Not going to attempt a more modern one as I'm not confident of the info. I think there may have been some recent OOB changes.
