Default Ireland OOB?

Well almost all European nations are available but where's Ireland? Worth of own OOB at all? Same equipment as British have? Anyway, if it exist somewhere let me know...

Back when they started SPMBT in 2002 (I think) nobody really plumped for Ireland or offered to do an Irish orbat. The same is true for Singapore, Venezuela, and a bunch of other countries.

Closer in terms of kit to Austria than UK - Steyr Aug rifle and Piranha APC, No tanks (other than a few old scorpions)

Add Irish kit to the UN orbat if you need them, as that is the only way they would be involved in conflicts.
e.g. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siege_of_Jadotville

IRISH equipment basic Textural OOB from a quick trawl of wikipedia:

NOTE A persistent problem with the Irish is that they're constantly running out of spares or other things for their vehicles. For example, their Comet tanks had all HE ammunition withdrawn because of faulty fuzes; and they never replaced it; making them anti tank vehicles only, etc.

Weapons:
Steyr AUG (1989-Present) with M203 GL.
Steyr AUG Enhanced aka Model 14 (2014-Present). ACOG 4x32 equipped. Carbine/Standard length variants

4 x Churchill Mk VI (1948-1969).
8 x Comets (1959-1973) (4 x in 1959, 4 x 1960) Faulty fuses caused HE ammunition to be withdrawn.

80 x Mowag Piranha IIIH (2001-Present)
....45 x APCs with 12.7mm MG and coax 7.62mm MG
....18 x Close Recon Vehicles, 12.7mm MG or 40mm GL in Kongsberg Protector RWS)

It's hard to believe, but 2002 was a long time ago -- almost fifteen years now.

The world's changed a lot -- Singapore from 1968-20xx operated just the AMX-13; and then they just jumped to the Leopard 2A4 then to Leopard 2SG -- that's going from 'no sizzle' to lot of 'sizzle'.

Same with Venezuela. No sizzle for a long time, then Comrade Hugo shows up and starts buying Russian kit like it's going out of style.

Default Re: Ireland OOB?

Here's a crude early attempt at an Irish OOB by extending the United Nations OBAT080 to include them.

I haven't done Irish infantry or put in their weapons, and there are some placeholders such as the Timoney APCs -- they're reserved, but no data is done.

One set of graphics is incorrect -- unit #521 Piranha III APC -- the Irish bought it with a small one man turret containing a .50 and .30 -- I don't feel like doing a set of special graphics and packing a SHP right now, so...

Key Formations to use:
Irish Arm Trp/Sqdn/Tank (Squadron Disappears 1973 with retirement of last tanks, as Ireland only bought 14 Scorpions in total.)

Irish APC / 2 Irish APC / 4 Irish APC - Contains the Irish APCs from Bren gun carriers to the Pirhanha IIIH.

Scout Car Pl: Contains the AML vehicles (AML-60-7, AML-20, AML-90).

Notes:
Irish Units start at #500.

Irish Weapons are marked * at end, e.g. "30mm A/C*" to show what's new and not compared to WinMBTv10 OOBs.

Irish Formations start at #800.

Knocked out a set of graphics this afternoon for the Irish Piranha IIIH with the .50/.30 turret.

Reference image also included for future reference.
