    Warsaw Pact ORBAT

    Colonel,

    I was wondering if you could provide information on the Warsaw Pact ORBAT during the 1980's.

    Does a tank regiment only have 2 tank battalions + 1 MR battalion? Can't see them having 3 tank battalions with a total 94 tanks if you count a company as having 11 tanks.

    would a tank battalion then break down as the following?

    battalion HQ : 1 tank 2 bmps

    then 3x company each with:

    1 tank for company commander + 3 platoons of 3 tanks.

    Ah, there's my problem. Somehow got the idea in my head that each platoon's got a 2 tank command section.
