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.

 * Task Organization reflects a typical Olvanan Heavy Combined Arms 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.  
 * 1x Artillery Battery is depicted "on the map." They 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 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.

According to a video I just watched a captured Russian manual states the a new "Assault Detachment " has been formed to replace BTG's for assaulting in Fortified positions . They consist of.


6x T-72's

12x IFV's

? x Man portable themobaric rockets ? Perhaps RPO-A Shmel ?

?x ATGM systems

12x Towed artillery and self propelled mortars


Detachment is made up of

3x assault companies and a tank section.


Each company has command element,  2x assault platoons (Less than normal platoon strength - 12-15 men). A UAV team,

an AFV group*, a fire support platoon, and an artillery support platoon.

A reserve section ??, a Medevac section

*A single Tank and 4x BMP/BMD IFV with HMG and mortars, ATGM's


Anyone have any more info ?
