Default Re: Design issue report for Scenario #139 Battle of the Beachhead

Not to jump and add confusion, but wasn't 1985 a big year for NATO and the US for certain upgrades and changes to doctrine? Would it not be similar for WP nations?

It was. It was roughly the year Warsaw Pact was starting to go bankrupt. It is a change after all xD

By that year Polish Army for example reorganized its 7th Naval Division towards a brigade. 6th Parachute Division was also brought down to a brigade. Several regiments were also being disbanded or downgraded
It is also the year DDR was for the first time refused certain military aid by the Afghan concerned USSR.

Right, I'll do something about that.

This is not much of an issue, IMO.

Ad lib - they are fictional scenarios anyway. I also relay heavily on modern maps, they won't be perfect for the 1980s either. Most scenarios have NATO focus, the WP units are seldom identified.

John Hackett's book was written about ten years before 1985 so it contains a lot of guesswork and IIRC it was written as a message about the need for a strong NATO conventional capability, so nukes takes a back seat as how thing unfold. Works good for me. Thing is, now I don't have to World Build a WWIII setup.

Team Yankee makes use of Hackett's book too IIRC.
