So what does everyone think of these rules? I never got a copy but they sound interesting….Mikey
Yes by its very name it’s normaly a Light force , But in this case with the close proximity of the oposing force “Russia” You could see a very heavy and well balanced force .
Even the Leo 2 MBT is a serious opponent for the latest Rusian MBT…I think The real challange will be if Nato can obtain Airsupieroity or Parity…with out it there is little that can be done ..That Russia recognises its inferiority is highlighted by it threats to maintain the right of first use of nuclear weapons to protect Russian territory….Mikey
Boonie hats and SLR for SA ,Africa,Vietnam etc sounds tasty
To ease your confusion untill recently the US Army maintained two distinct true cavalry organizations. The ACR or Armored Cavalry regiment and the Armored Cavalry Squadron.
The Armored Cavalry regiment was a Brigade sized organization Usualy found supporting a Corps or larger sized Formation while the Armored Cavalry Squadron was a Battalion sized element found supporting a Division sized formation. Yes in ACRs you would have heard the Regiments 3 Combat manuver elements refered to as “Saber Squadrons”.
A ACR contained 3 Bn sized elements consisting of 3 Cavalry troops and 1 Tank troop supported by a artillery battery , The Divisional Cavalry Sqadrons had no organic artillery .
There were slight diferences in troop and Platoon organizations but these were not significant.
A Troop Hqs and 3 Platoons
Platoons usualy consisted of a Platoon Hqs a apc transporting the Platoon leader , RTOs Medic and platoon Sargent . 1-2 APC carrying ground survailance radars.
1-4 APCs carrying scouts , 1 APC carrying an Infantry sqad, 1 SP Mortar Track a Light section (2 tanks) or Heavy section (3 tanks) Vietnam Org The Lt Section commanded by the Tank Platoon Sargent , The heavy section commanded by the Tank Platoon Leader. The APC was of course the M113 while the Tank would have been the M48 later replaced by the M551.
Post Vietnam The platoon was slightly different with a Command track (M113 untill replaced by the M2 Bradley)
4 scout tracks M113 (NOT ACAVs) armed with M2 and M47 Dragon ATGM on M175 dragon missile vehicle mounts (M113 untill replaced by M2 Which itself would be replaced by the M3 Cav variant of the Bradley MICV).
2 M150 (Untill replaced by M901) ToW ATGM tracks, Not present in Bradley equiped platoons.
1 M1063 SP heavy Mortar
3 MBTs M60A3 in Divisional Squadrons or M60A3 or M551 In regimental troops (Untill replaced by M1 Abrams).
In BN Scout Platoons were restructured in the 90s for both armored and Infantry Battalions , with the armoured Bns having Bradleys and and the Infantry platoons having Humvees and Bradleys.
There were of course Air Cavalry troops In Divisional Cavalry and Air Cavalry squadrons at regimental Cavalry Units (AH1 untill replaced by AH64).

In The US Army each Bn has a Medical platoon with a senior Aid man at Company and each Platoon having a Aidman. At BN you would find the BN Aid Station which includes a treatment section and Evacuation section. During war time the BAS can form two seperate facilities with one led by the Doctor (present during wartime) and the other by the Physicians Assistant.
At least one member of each fire team is trained in advance life saving with the others having basic medical training….Mikey
