organisation/order of battle info

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I'm trying to get my head round the organisation/order of battle and composition of different military forces, you know brigade, battalion, company etc. and figure out down to the squad level how different forces are organised, but despite there being a lot of info out there I can't find anything that's concise, clear, complete and gives a good picture of organization from company to squad level, has anybody found any good web resources I could use as an "at a glance" reference

Also, I'd love to get my hands on some sort of open source modern war gaming info as well for point values, for "balancing" scenarios and missions to but again I've had no luck with that either -has anyone seen or know of anything like that?

There is an Order of Battles website, it is not very easy to navigate though:-

For US and USSR formations the FM's seem to offer the best, easy to use data. You can find a few of those in the Download section.

1 x Sqn of Scimitar ( Supplied from Formation Recce)

1 x Sqn of WMIK ( Supplied from Formation Recce)

1 x Sqn of CR2

2 x Coy of Warrior

1 x Coy of Protected Mobility in Bulldog

1 x Recce Plt

1 x Support Coy (FSG, Anti tank, snipers etc)

Thanks CR2_Commander, I take it for this the CR2 Sqn has 14 CR with 3 troops of 4 plus XO and CO.

Think its 4 troops of 4 with CO & XO.

Squadron = 18 tanks

3 squadrons = 54 tanks

HQ Co & Xo = 56 tanks.

Type 56 regiment.
