nicely done, Pat! I can olny imagine what a bugger it is to get much detail in something that scale.

There is an interesting article about Soviet aerosans here:

http://www.battlefield.ru/content/view/216/123/lang,en/

Steven Zaloga’s Red Army Handbook claims that some aerosans were grouped into aerosled battalions:

“A unique Soviet formation was the aerosled battalion equipped with the unique powered snow vehicles that the Russians called aerosan. An initial group of 62 battalions was raised starting in January 1942 but as warm weather approached they were disbanded, the last 17 in June. A second group of 70 began forming in October but this time they were kept on duty through the summer of 1943, although their numbers slowly declined to 57 at the end of the year. In May 1944 reduction began anew and in June all the remaining aerosled battalions were disbanded.

The battalions were exceptionally small, even by Soviet standards. The basic unit, the platoon, consisted of three NKL-26 armoured aerosleds, each with a 2-man crew and armed with a light machine gun. Three such platoons, plus a tenth aerosled for the commander, made up a company. The battalion consisted of three such companies plus a headquarters and a supply company, the later with 10 cargo/utility aerosleds. These elements gave the battalion a total strength of around 100 men.”
