Okay so this is the first iteration, so if you spot anything let me know, I will sort it out. Hopefully this will satisfy some of the more unusual request's I've had for specific Lists.

As with everything thus far, I've gone very broad Brush. I haven't started drilling down to specific Lists like "British Para's" or "Foreign Legion". I intend to at some point, but to be honest the idea of this was Mechanised Battlegroup Warfare and in many regards light Infantry even Elite Light Infantry isn't a great fit and will be very ATGM and Infantry Support weapon heavy and light on vehicles. 

For the sake of completeness I do aim to have all that done by the end of 2014. In the meantime I want to continue to focus on refining and improving the Rules, and getting specific lists together for certain forces and Nationalities. 

One's I have so far avoided have been Mediterranean Forces (so Spain, Portugal, Greece, Italy, Turkey). 

This will be a large job, but doesn't fit in the "German Centric Campaign". I have been considering the second front being an Airborne led Invasion of Greece by WARPAC with follow on ground forces via Yugoslavia. Potentially with Turkey coming to Greece's Aid (unlikely but necessity makes for unusual bed fellows) and with an Amphibious Counter invasion under NATO Command Naples with Spain, Portugal, Italy and Royal Navy forming a huge task force in the Ionian and Aegean. The US Focuses on reinforcing Turkey to protect it's assets there, and to close down the Bosphorus and protect Istanbul and the Eastern end of Turkey from invasion via Georgia or Armenia.

The Invasion of Turkey could be very interesting, as we could easily accommodate massive Tank battles, and Mechanised warfare. Possibly with Iran getting involved as well. So Eastern Turkey could become a real Cauldron..... Just thoughts but it would make for very interesting scenarios. Any thoughts?


 So given my reinforced Company battlegroup is almost complete, I thought I would give an overview.

This was my original Concept

As you can see, I've fleshed this out with several Armoured Cars, some BTR50's and small Battery of 2S3's and some SHILKA's.

Future additions I want to add to this force to make it Complete in my eyes.

2 x MTLB's (Artillery Command Unit and a spare Command Unit)
4 x BRDM (to give a Scout Platoon)
3 x BM27 (MLRS enough said)
? x URAL's & GAZ Trucks.....Like a sh*t tonne of them (Possibly 20).


The US Forces and Bundeswehr Forces are now pretty huge. I don't want to steal the other guys thunder. But I will give an Orbat Picture so you can visual it.......
