Default Finnish OOB 8.0

Have a nice holiday from the tiresome task of going thru OOBs and checking and checking. Here's something for the version 9.0 when the holiday is over. I try to put everything in place so that there's only minimal work required.

Unit 021 Leopard 2A6FIN

Units will be shipped from Netherlands during 2015-2019 and will thus have the equipment 2A6NL currently has:

MODIFY
Unit 021 Leopard 2A6FIN
Weapon1: 120mm L55 WG06 or WG01 (needs new weapon entry either way)
EW: 4

REMOVE
Unit 025 Leopard 2A5FIN
No upgrades planned to 2A4s as 2A6s were bought.

Fallout Re: Finnish OOB 8.0

I just was under the "impression" the Finns would continue with this nomenclature in naming their newly bought LEOPARDS. If this is incorrect that's on me, however, that does not change the fact that those tanks are the Dutch ones they just bought. That being said I believe those guns are correct. That was just a simple transfer to the Finnish OOB of the tanks that are in the Netherlands OOB for how many years now without issue. No plans have been announced for any upgrades on those tanks by Finland with the possible exception of changing out of the TI and maybe the FCS to a BAE Hauglands system. I'm tracking this issue currently. I cannot speak to the LEOPARD 2A5FIN except that the refs below do support your claim.

Fallout Re: Finnish OOB 8.0

Well that was the plan, see the Patch Page/or the MBT Thread. The wrong Netherlands unit was transferred over to the Finnish OOB. It should've been as requested; Dutch UNIT 037 which does have the correct 120mm/L55 on it. You are correct and I missed the "gun check" myself when I bounced my inputs off the Patch.

Pat

Default Re: Finnish OOB 8.0

The minister of defence, Carl Haglund, accepted the proposal and the agreement was signed in the change of January-February.

As the Finnish government is looking for savings the FDF has had their share of budget cuts (thus ATACMS acquisition was cancelled) and FDF had estimated that the price of Leopard 2A4 upgrade is half of a price for a new Leopard 2A7 and it wouldn't make any sense to do such thing.

ref: http://www.talouselama.fi/uutiset/ha...rista/a2226406 (in Finnish)
http://yle.fi/uutiset/puolustusminis...mmaksi/7036200 (in Finnish)

translating the most important paragraph:
"According to the Minister of Defence Carl Haglund the Leopard 2A4 tanks currently in use have aged to the point where they need to be upgraded or replaced with new ones. New tanks would have cost approximately 10 million euros a piece and even the upgrade around 5 million euros per tank."

According to the latest Teknologia & Talous magazine, the batches of deliveries will span from 2015 to 2019. A big piece-by-piece scan here, translations maybe later: https://www.dropbox.com/s/mnmftx6phbrubie/TT.png

The reality has just been updated. Itpsv 2010 Marksman SPAAG prototype never went into production and the defence forces stopped training new conscripts for the gun. However, it will be included in reserve "near the end of this decade", ie. 12/2020 or so.

REMOVE
Unit 322 Itpsv 2010 AA
A prototype upgrade, never continued.

And finally, a possibility of a Human player to use the AMOS SP-mortar in dual mode, if the code supports it:

ADD/MODIFY
XA361 Dual AMOS
XA361 can engage both in direct fire (like assault gun) or indirect fire (like SP mortar). However the current game mechanics prohibit human player from doing so, as the mortar version has no Fire Control, Range Finder or Stabiliser set.
Create a dual-purpose AMOS for a human player to pick so he can change the purpose at will.
Copy unit 335 - XA361 AMV AMOS and 336 - XA361 AMV STRIX to new units and change the following:
Radio: 93 (prevent AI from using these as it probably can't)
Fire control: 35 (as in assault gun type version)
Range finder: 22 (ditto)
Stabiliser: 3 (ditto)

Default Re: Finnish OOB 8.0

Finnish Defence Forces Army has published their new "local defence model": http://www.puolustusvoimat.fi/wcm/03...df?MOD=AJPERES (pdf, 2.8 MB)

Here's some background work and in the end I try to intertwine it to SPMBT. Please try to bear with me for a while as I'll summarize the most important pages:

Page 3, Army wartime troops from 2015 on
  • Army 150 000 men
    • Operative troops 20%
      • FDF Rapid Deployment Brigades
      • Mechanized battle groups
      • Motorized battle groups
      • Special Jaeger Batallion
      • Helicopter Batallion
      • Detail units
    • Regional troops 60%
      • Infantry Brigades
      • Infantry Batallions and combat groups
      • Branch troops
      • Detail units
    • Local troops 20%
      • Local Batallions
    • Separately formed troops
      • AT Companies
      • Mortar Companies
      • FG and AA Batteries
      • Tank Companies
      • Other units

Operative troops should be represented as top of the notch companies and this categorization has already been seen in the reserve training where the emphasis is on important key strategic troops as opposed to, well, me. According to this public documentation, they'll be the best equipped bunch from these. So to map the current WinSPMBT companies and platoons, I propose it to be divided to (in parentheses their current exp/morale adjustment):
  • Operative troops 20%
    • Special Jaegers (+15 +15)
    • RDF Co/Pl (+10 +15)
    • Para Co/Pl/Co[A]/Pl[A] (+10 +10)
    • Coast Eng Pl (+8 +8)
    • Sissi Co/Pl (+5 +10)
    • Sissi Mortar Pl (+5 +10)
    • Sissi Lt Mortar (+5 +10)
    • Coast Jaeger Co/Pl (+5 +5)
    • Heavy Arty Bn/Bty (+5 +5
    • Artillery Bn/Bty (+5 +5)
    • Field Gun Bty/Pl (+5 +5)
    • SPA Bt/Bty/Sec (+0 +0)
    • MRV Inf Co/Pl (+0 +0)
    • MRV Support Pl (+0 +0)
    • BV Jaeger Co/Pl (+0 +0)
    • CV Jaeger Co/pl (+0 +0)
    • Mech AT Plt (+0 +0)
    • Bde TOW Co/Pl (+0 +0)
    • Helicopters (+0 +0)
    • AMOS Assault Pl (+0 +0)
    • TOW BV Pl (+0 +0)
    • Pioneer Tank (Pl) (+0 +0)
  • Regional troops 60%
    • Pz Jaeger Co/Pl (+0 +0)
    • Pz Pioneer Co/pl (+0 +0)
    • Scouts (+0 +0)
    • Ski Scouts (+0 +0)
    • Infanty Co (+0 +0)
    • Jaeger Co (+0 +0)
    • Sniper (Grp) (+0 +0)
    • Pioneer Plt/Det (+0 +0)
    • GL Section (+0 +0)
    • Infantry AT-Grp (+0 +0)
    • Apilas Plt (+0 +0)
  • Local troops 20%
    • Reserve Co/Pl (-5 -5)
  • Separately formed troops
    • Mineclearing Pl (+0 +0)
    • MBT (Co/Pl) (+0 +0)
    • Inf-SAM Sec/Det (+0 +0)
    • AAG/SPAAG/AAMG Bty/Pl (+0 +0)
    • The rest of generic (non-FG/SPA) ARTILLERY units (+0 +0)
    • All the things in MISC (+0 +0) except...
    • Tractors (-5 +0)
    • etc

Naturally the units in the game fall heavily on the A-list as nobody is interested in creating the small nuances between Ostrobothnian reservists vs. North Karelian reservists. I propose the following adjustments to be made as there is still plenty of space in the Finnish OOB:

Copy / Modify
Formations 285, 286, 287: MRV Inf Co/Pl to MRV Jaeger Co/Pl:
Difference between Infantry and Jaeger is the equipment, most importantly the XA-185/202 APCs which are missing from the infantry troops. They have trucks or if they're really out of luck then they have tractors.
End current formations to 12/2014 if you are worried about compatibility and replace the units 127 Infantry Sec with unit 113 Jaeger Section and start the new formation from 1/2015 with +3 / +3 morale/exp boost. Alternatively it could be renamed to "Motor Inf Co/Pl" and be given trucks instead. Or if that is the game developers' view, then drop it to the "60% regional troops" class and do nothing.

Modify
Unit 400: CV9030S: Change unit class to 120 Heavy APC or 127 Gun APC (Tracked)
CV and Pz Companies are overlapping as both are able to pick CV9030S or BMP-2 as they like. However they should represent totally differing types of troops: one driving a 1980's Lada and another driving 2000's Volvo .
Change unit class to either 120 or 127 (or another compatible if there are effects in the game mechanics from picking either one of these). The unit is already of movement type Tracked.

Modify
Give operative troops a bit of exp/morale improvement:
Formations 285*, 286*, 287*, 019, 032, 300*, 301*, 168, 141, 140, 013**, 014 : Bump up the morale and experience a notch (+3, +3)
MRV Jaeger Co/Pl, MRV Support Pl, BV Jaeger Co/Pl, CV Jaeger Co/Pl, Mech AT Plt, Bde TOW Co/Pl, AMOS Assault Pl, TOW BV Pl
Formations 146, 147, 152 : Bump up the morale to respective values of non-SP arty units (+5, +5)
SPA Bt/Bty/Sec
* Modifications proposed also in other parts of this post
** Modifications to affected units proposed earlier in this thread

Copy & Modify
Add the regional artillery (see page 4 of the PDF) by copying the existing arty formations, renaming them to "Res. Arty Bn/Bty" and "Res. FG Bn/Bty"
Formations 175, 176, 230, 233 : Copy units to new slots, remove the morale and experience bonus: (+0, +0) for Artillery Bn/Bty, Field Gun Bty/Pl

Modify
Add some AT weaponry to Reserve squads:
Formation 252 Reserve Platoon
Add a copy of a unit 046 - Orak Team available from 1/96 on and with class 161 - Reserve Sup't Squad which is unused in the OOB. In 12/95 HMG section goes away from the company and 66 KeS Orak (M72 LAW) becomes pretty low-tech as Apilas has been around for 9 years. This date trick allows the unit to replace the gap removal of HMG leaves them and some slight AT capability against IFVs and APCs. Alternatively it can be added as of 1/2015 to capture only the recent changes.
Add this unit to formation 252.

Copy & Modify
Add Reserve light mortar platoon for Reserve troops (see page 14, the structure of a "local company": Jääkärijoukkue = Jaegar platoon, Kevyt kranaatinheitinjoukkue = light mortar platoon)
Res. Mortar Pl
Copy formation 109 Mortar Pl(3) to new formation and rename it to "Res. Mortar Pl" and give it (-5, -5) modifiers.

After modifications the new modifiers will be (changed values in bold:
  • Operative troops 20%
    • Special Jaegers (+15 +15)
    • RDF Co/Pl (+10 +15)
    • Para Co/Pl/Co[A]/Pl[A] (+10 +10)
    • Coast Eng Pl (+8 +8)
    • Sissi Co/Pl (+5 +10)
    • Sissi Mortar Pl (+5 +10)
    • Sissi Lt Mortar (+5 +10)
    • Coast Jaeger Co/Pl (+5 +5)
    • Heavy Arty Bn/Bty (+5 +5
    • Artillery Bn/Bty (+5 +5)
    • Field Gun Bty/Pl (+5 +5)
    • SPA Bt/Bty/Sec (+5 +5)
    • MRV Jaeger Co/Pl (+3 +3)
    • MRV Support Pl (+3 +3)
    • BV Jaeger Co/Pl (+3 +3)
    • CV Jaeger Co/Pl (+3 +3)
    • Mech AT Plt (+3 +3)
    • Bde TOW Co/Pl (+3 +3)
    • AMOS Assault Pl (+3 +3)
    • TOW BV Pl (+3 +3)
    • Helicopters (+0 +0)
    • Pioneer Tank (Pl) (+0 +0)
  • Regional troops 60%
    • Pz Jaeger Co/Pl (+0 +0)
    • Pz Pioneer Co/Pl (+0 +0)
    • Scouts (+0 +0)

  • Separately formed troops
    • Mineclearing Pl (+0 +0)
    • MBT (Co/Pl) (+0 +0)
    • Inf-SAM Sec/Det (+0 +0)

Default Re: Finnish OOB 8.0

I covered the issue of OOB work like this in the note we included with the patch release and it was aimed exactly at posts like this. Apparently, you either didn't read it or figure it didn't apply to you but BELIEVE ME.......it does.

If you want these mods then do them yourself and post them to the mods folder with a detailed readme and MAYBE after we finally get the break we have desperately needed to take for at least 2 years, we will look at what's been done and *IF* we agree it's worthwhile we will consider using the mods in the official OOB.

I have no problem with someone pointing out an error here or there but we are done with lists like this and I thought we had already made that clear when we released the patch.

Sorry Don!
I was too excited to get back to the game after a long period of hospital stays, visits and checkups etc that I just did a cursory reading over the release notes before I fired up the game to fight my friend. That's why there was nothing from me to this forum during that time either, I was too busy concentrating on my family members' health.

I was thinking already while writing that message that I would add "I'm creating an unofficial OOB based on the changes I have listed in this thread." I hope it gets merged back to the main game, I try to be careful not to introduce any changes not specifically mentioned in this thread and extra careful not to break any backwards compatibility.

In the mean time, take a cup of strong coffee and enjoy the time away from this thread and enjoy the finer things in life.
