Re: Updated Soviet Lists 2.1

Hello,

Thanks for your work, I'm glad to see everything getting updated ; especially since I'm really, really a huge fan of projectable forces such as marines and paratroopers.

By the way, speaking about WARPAC nations, I had been doing research for a couple months about the NVA DDR, first for airsoft stuff and home rules, then for another famous 15mm Cold War tabletop wargame, and now that I've discovered Battlegroup NORTHAG a month and a half ago, I had been thinking about that as well. Here's my try at whipping up a NVA Motor Rifles list based on my research, what do you think about it? https://drive.google.com/file/d/1JLwFVOWJD8TGTELsRsRsTGE9M3OErm68/view?usp=sharing

Of course, I'm not pretending to be someone from the official team of anything, please think of it as "fan fiction" more than anything else.

Edit : the page overlay has been massacred by the conversion from ODT to PDF, I hope it's still readable... Also, it has a couple typos that I'll clean up later on.

Hi Kirill_GV001

Well I think you've done a great job which will really help push me to complete the East German Tank and Motor Rifle Lists that I've already started. You've got some excellent information in there and a lot of stuff I need to look into further.

Again - well done and much appreciated.

Hi Rich

Back again with some more, (MR Div v.2.1 and Armd Div v. 4.1)
1) pg 19 (AD), 2s4 and 2s5 are still 2s3 in write-ups. pg 21 (MRD) 2s4 is still 2s3 in same.
2) pg 15 (MRD) 240mm mtr is still 1-2 1-2 240mm mtr in Frontal Arty
3) pg 19 (AD) and pg 21 (MRD) 9k22 is 'anti-craft' ?
4) pg 23 (MRD) and pg 21 (AD) 9k34 title correct (SA-14), but is SA-7 in write-up

AD = Armoured Division
MRD = Motor Rifle Division

That's all for now

Hi Paul

Thanks again. I must have got my version control stuffed coz I could swear I had already fixed some of those..... Dammit!

The final point (4) the write-up states it is a modernised version of the SA-7 so that one is OK.

I'll check my pdf variants and then re-list.

Hi Richard

Quick question: Is the Shilka a multiple barrelled light auto cannon? or a Vehicle with 4x light auto cannon?

many thanks

I'd use it as a multiple barrel light autocannon so it has a Rof of 10 and a max range of 50"

I hope that answers the question.

Hi Rich

I'm back!!

Just a quickie; in the MR Div list, the T.64 Plat (4 tanks) is only 9-r BR, should that be 12-BR (as it is in the T.80 and T.72 Plats, which also have 4 tanks each, and 12-r BR).

The T.80, T.72 and T.64 Coys are all 39-r BR (each with 13 tanks).

On the lookout for more.

Ahhh Paul - always good to hear from you!

Well spotted yet again - I've gone in and fixed that in my word version. I am slightly disapointed in you though! I checked further in the same section and noticed I had the T-62 platoon of 4 tanks rated a 6-i BR when they should have been 8-i BR. So I've fixed that too!

Very Happy

Hi Rich

I just prod you in the right direction Very Happy

I'm in the middle of painting up some 15mm 1985ish Brits and Soviets, for the smaller scale games (6mm for bigger games).

As an aside: weren't the Warsaw Pact tanks and AT gun Platoons taught to fire at one target per Platoon?
ATGWs probably not, same with AA (both AAA and SAM).

Paul (still on the look out for more)

Hi Paul

All your edits are really useful so please keep it up!

You may be right about tank and AT gun platoons being taught to fire at the same target - I just feel in games terms this is two constrictive - forcing the player to play like a Soviet. I also did not want to create tank parks where three or four tanks are all track to track so they can get line-of-sight on the same target. I really hate that look!

Hope that explains the thinking.

Hi Rich

I can see, and understand, your thinking now.
I hate 'TankParks' as well, so unreal.
