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! :)

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:
