Default Re: Problems with the current Russian OOB (#11).

There appears to be an "easy" fix for this. I just have to proceed carefully.

( and " easy " is a relative term )

When all BTR-50's are made 20 carry capacity and changed to UC-120 that shifts these big APC's to a UC all their own. The ONLY formation affected by this is 5 ( from the POV of the picklist )...that's the Mech Rifle Co from 1/1955-12/66......none of the others are affected ...BUT......moving Formation 375 to slot 5 puts the Hvy APC's in the formation slot the picklist wants and moving Form376 to Form38 puts everything in sync.... freeing up 2 formation slots as well as changing nothing from a player POV and keeping the picklist " happy " once the "new" Form 5 is pointed at the correct place it's "new" pls are found in ( 38 )


now all I have to do is figure out the infantry that goes into each and in the end these early big carriers will be set up correctly but there WILL need to be a slight compromise to accommodate the lower carry capacity of the BTR-152 that shares this class

The bottom line is this can be fixed so it better represents the actual situation but it won't be exact and in the process free up 2 formation and 1 unit slot

I always thought that command groups are simply spread out among the rifle squads. So mech sections should be either 7 men (if we have 3 men vehicle crews) or 8 (if commander dismounts too).

Also there should be two man PKM team in each BTR/Platoon after 90s as company machine gun platoon was disbanded. AT assets went to a company command and machine guns were spread out among the platoons.
I have made OOB development adjustments to the Russian OOB that appear to set up the various mech formations more correctly with slightly larger mech units and so far I have not found a case where units were left on foot and the manpower count seems to be as close as we can get. Both the BMP and BTR Rifle plts now have 24 men on foot with 6 more as crew in year 2000 platoons but it's a juggling act to get this all to work with formations that span 75 years but I *think* I have. PLUS the BTR-50 formations are better represented in regards to manpower and number of carriers per plt/ coy

However, in future PLEASE use specific game formation numbers when making comments on formations so I know I'm looking at the same thing you are looking at

Russian Victory Day parade showed couple of new developments which caught my eye: according to news there were arctic versions of Pantsyr and Tor-M SAM launchers.
In a nutshell: Snow track vehicles that are amphibious. If there's room to fit them in the OOB.

Fallout Re: Problems with the current Russian OOB (#11).

This is everything I've been tracking for Russian SPAA/AA equipment in some cases for almost 2 years now.

Pantsir-S2... Issues improved radar and detection augmented by a new missile allowing extended range and altitude.

ZSU-23-4 & Tungunska replacement?... Issues they're just old and outdated.

The next is specifically for the dedicated Arctic Defense Force (ADF) they already had the SPAA version mounting the Pantsir-S1 modified system the news here is they are also equipping the ADF with the new longer range TOR-M2 system
with both mounted on the Vityaz DT-30-series all-terrain tracked carriers (ATTCs) optimized for Arctic operations.

Buk-M3... Issues pretty much the same as the above improved radar and new missile, however, the main difference here is that this is considered a completely new system vice an improved one. That's the big news here. I believe I might've posted this already in the SPA/SPAA Thread at least the second ref.

Finally because it's time for lunch and getting ready for "my Monday" the TOR-M2U improved version of the well, TOR-M2... Issues this comes under much improved from the first ref. "The SAM system is capable of acquiring over 40 targets simultaneously, prioritize them and engage four of them at the same time." in the SAM world that's pretty darn good.

Strela replacement and SPAA for Russian Airborne troops, the Sosna-10... Issues simply "out with the old, in with the new".

That pretty much covers most of it. As a reminder equipment status always noted on the equipment info refs or as otherwise noted in the preceding article.

Since this came up, I'll be moving this into the SPA/SPAA Thread early Tue. morning after work for my tracking.
