    Mihais, It is socking for this civilian who had trouble to go through all your acronyms.

    I can see why it is written like that. Some politico will read them, too, at some point of time ;)

      Soviet expeditionary force in the 80s

      Were the soviets capable of sustained ( i.e > 3 months ) of military operations in areas that were not geographically close to the the USSR ?
      In other words did they have the capability to muster a expeditionary force comprising of air/sea /land elements to fight overseas average size enemy like lets say Egypt ?
      If so what would such a force consist of ? Naval marine units ? Paratroopers ?

      I'm thinking of a scenario lets say in early 80s Libya and Egypt war flares up and soviets decide to intervene to prevent fall of GaddAFI , DID they have the force to do so ? Assuming Israel and USA does not come to Egypts aid
