Default OOB 066 Sweden [WIP]



OOB 066 SWEDEN

INTRODUCTION

The purpose of this thread is to store details of the Swedish Armed Forces, especially the Army, during primarily the Cold War era, but also later. My aim is to eventually expand the Swedish WinSPMBT OOB with correct formations, weapons etc – within the limits of the game.

Hopefully it will also provide some interesting reading for those that are unfamiliar with the history of a small neutral nation in the north of Europe.

I am looking forward to this oob. I have always thought it needed some work. Glad you are doing it Wulfir.

Nice stuff Wulfir if possible would it be possible to include notes like what you just posted so we know correct usage

Staff Coy (included command elments and 3 Recce Platoons carried in soft vehicles).
2 Tank Companies
2 Armoured Infantry Companies

Yugoslavia & Croatia are 2 OOBs I can think of that have notes.
Only viewable from encyclopedia, the first entry.

Formation:........Name:

426..............Arm Bn Spt 63

Game organisation of the Armoured Battalion Support Elements:

513 Arm Inf Sec
54 Pbv 302
1427 Arm Bn Recce Pl (New Formation)
1427 Arm Bn Recce Pl (New Formation)
1427 Arm Bn Recce Pl (New Formation)
1428 Arm Pioneer Plt (New Formation)
1050 Arm Arty (Bn) (Changed formation)

Notes: The Command element transport might be changed to a Stripbv 3021 (Command version of the Pbv 302). I might need to adjust the place of or remove the 313 Arm Arty (Bn) Plt - the game reads formations from bottom to top, I've been told.


Formation:........Name:

427..............Arm Bn Recce Pl

495 Recon Group
495 Recon Group
495 Recon Group
212 LMG Team
170 AT-inf grg
569 Pltgb 903
569 Pltgb 903
569 Pltgb 903

Notes: This formation is a compromise. A Bn Recce Plt had a Platoon command element and three recce squads of each 5 men. The Platoon heavy weapons included 3 LMGs and 1 Grg. The primary purpose was however recon, not fighting. This game organisation is close to the real one in the number of platoon personell but with less firpower. All teams are size 0. Although the platoon has some bite it has no staying power - making it useful for scouting but not fighting. Many of the other OOB 066 Scout teams are size 1 and has the same weapon layout as regular infantry sections. It does also save me from creating new scout teams as I need classes for other types of scouts.


Formation:........Name:

428..............Arm Pioneer Plt

720 Arm Pioneer Sec (New Unit)
720 Arm Pioneer Sec (New Unit)
720 Arm Pioneer Sec (New Unit)
553 Heavy Truck
553 Heavy Truck
553 Heavy Truck

Notes: Pioneer Platoons were usually found within the Battalion organisation in various types of brigades and independent battalions. It was an engineer unit but Engineer Platoons were usually found in Engineer Companies. The Armoured Pioneers did not have LMGs but older HMGs with a secondary AAMG role. Lack of suitable Anti Air was somthing that plauged the Armoured Brigade org 63 for a long time.


Formation:........Name:

050..............Arm Arty (Bn)

Change: Changed the end date to 12/101.
