Default A little OOB managing utility + Czechoslovakian OOBs

How do you like it?

The application is called FreeMind and its original aim was to create Mind Maps. However I thought it is a cute way how to keep all the OOB data in nice order, esp. as it supports exports to various file formats. So here is the result: Czechoslovakian Infantry Complete. The mind maps themselves are interactive, here are exports into .PNG pictures:

First (though it does not belong here, really... But what the...) Regimental structures of Czechoslovakian army in 1930s:


Czechoslovakian Infantry companies in May 1945 and 1947 organisations:


Czechoslovakian infantry companies of 1950s.
In 1954, Infantry units got renamed to Rifles. Organisation changed only slightly. 1951/1954 organisation also remained generally the same for mech units, only APCs got attached to platoons (used with halftracks)
1958 organisation is first significant change reflecting the motorisation, brought to life by acquisition of high-capacity BTR-50 APCs from the USSR. This organisation also laid the groundwork for OT-62 (modified BTR-50) and OT-64 designs.


Czechoslovakian infantry companies of early 1960s.
In 1960, Rifle units of 1958 organisation underwent a change. Company APC squad was disbanded and instead, each platoon received two integral APCs, with Co HQ getting another.
However, this change was short-lived only, in 1961 organisation the structure changes to smaller squads (7 men) and APCs are once again concentrated in APC Squad.
In 1963, without any change in organisation, Rifle units are re-designated as Motor Rifle.


Czechoslovakian Motor Rifle Companies of 1960s-1970s.
By the end of 1960s, a new variant of OT-64 APC was designed, carrying a BTR-60PB turret with 14.5mm machinegun. Such modification was called OT-64-2A in Czechoslovakia (though usually just "OT-64", sometimes also incorrectly as "OT-64A"). These APCs were to replace halftracks in Tank Division's Motor Rifle Regiments.
New APC brought a radical change to platoon organisation, with only two squads per platoon. Strangely enough, OT-64-2A had a crew of three: Driver, Gunner and Loader.
In 1970s, BVP-1 first appeared and started to free up turretted OT-64s. In response, OT-64 units reverted to "three squads per platoon" and to a similar organisation as BVP units.


Enjoy!

Sure, here it is.

EDIT: in the pics above (as in the *.mm) I have used the colored numbered icons to denote echelons (along with file formatting), so 7 is section (or other Squad subdivision), 6 is squad, 5 is platoon, 4 Co, 3 Btn and 2 regiment.

So how do you like it?
I've been thinking of using it to convert nice tables of divisional organisation from post-WWII era I found in a book to an electronic form, when I have some time.

Not got the time to play yet like to have a couple of hours free with a new program so I can learn it or at least the basics, results though are really nice.
