    This is the Holy of Holies for the US Army: The online field manual guide. Nearly all weapons, tactics and organizations are here.

    http://globalsecurity.org/military/l...olicy/army/fm/

    For example:

    Bradley Mechanized Platoon and Squad

    Ranger Special Ops: Raids

    PHASE 1. The ranger force inserts or infiltrates into the objective area.

    PHASE 2. The objective area is then sealed off from outside support or reinforcement, to include the enemy air threat.

    PHASE 3. Any enemy force at or near the objective is overcome by surprise and violent attack, using all available firepower for shock effect.

    PHASE 4. The mission is accomplished quickly before any surviving enemy can recover or be reinforced.

    PHASE 5. The ranger force quickly withdraws from the objective area and is extracted.

    A British Platoon to the best of my knowlegde. This is all what we base ourselves around at RAAB anyway . Unless otherwise mentioned assume rank = Private

    HQ section

    Contains the CO (a Lt)
    Platoon Sgt (carries radio)
    Medic (Cpl?)

    3x Rifle Sections.
    Each section contains:

    Fireteam C
    Section I/C (Cpl, carries a radio)
    Soldier (SA80)
    Soldier (UGL)
    Support (LSW)

    Fireteam D
    Section 2I/C (LCpl, Carries radio)
    Soldier (LAW)
    Soldier (UGL)
    Support (LMG)

    Manouvre Support Section.

    Section I/C (Rifleman, carries radio)
    GPMG Gunner x 2
    GPMG Assistant x2.

    Somewhere on the Army website is a graphic of how it looks when it gets larger but cant find it to save my life.

    Afaik mech inf only have 7 men per section due to the Warrior APC only carrying 7.
    If you're reading this, turn off your computer, step away from the internet, and go out and enjoy life to its max.

    PS. All UKF related queries to da12thmonkey. I don't do this crap anymore.

    Here is circa 1989 Soviet TO&Es for higher level units (Battalion/Regiment/Brigade and above). Not exactly useful for squad and platoon level fights like in OFP, but it'll give you a good idea of the kind of support Soviet-style opposing forces will have.

    Think its good to bring in direct link to the part needed for proper briefings (even when it can be founded from Field Manual link) - comand and mission planing on platoon level:

    Infantry riffle platoon/squad overview, command (link above), offensive and deffensive operations and so on:

    At home I have an HTML format for briefings that I use in the OFP missions I play with some friends, based on US OPORDs. I'll post it here and anyone that wants to use it in their mission briefings is free to do so.

    Those links you provided are perfect for knowing what kind of info you want to plug into the Opord, Munch.

    4 Para Bn; they also have VABs; you can also add 1 SF Bn

    3) " " Armourede Inf Bn`s vou`ve got?

    6 Bn with the outdated AMX10PH which should be replaced by the VBCI around...2010 ?

    4) Are there any plans to reduce or expand the Bn`s

    None that I am aware of

    5) Are there any decisions made what rifle will be used for FELIN?

    A converted FAMAS with a Picatiny rail and no handguard; it's ugly as hell.

    I just made a mission with this thread in mind and it's great.

    You need real tactics to win, else 4 Soviet squads could obliterate you heh.

    Basically you have to clear an LZ so that friendly troops can land and help take the town the the West. That may sound easy, but you havn't seen the Soviet MG squad, mechanized squad, and 2 supporting infantry squads that are defending the area.

    It's alot more fun than normal missions, and it lets you try out different tactics to win it.

    This thread is a must!

    The following is the standard 5-paragraph Operations Order I use in most of my mission briefings. Feel free to edit the information as you see fit and use it for yourself. This particular mission was designed as an open ended giant MP mission/campaign on Tonal using BAS and Combat stuff that still needs tons of work...

    See Munch's post above for more info on how to fill out the OpOrd - I'm not presenting mine as gospel 100% accurate.

    &#60;P&#62;&#60;br&#62;Task Force 21 has recently arrived in country. Your TF is composed of a company from the 5th Special Forces Group located at &#60;a href = &#34;marker&#58;base&#34;&#62;Camp Pablo&#60;/a&#62; along with aviation and security elements.&#60;/P&#62;&#60;BR&#62;
    &#60;BR&#62;
    &#60;P&#62;The friendly host nation is experiencing a widespread insurgency in the desert wastes of the country. As part of the current US policy of pre-emptive counterterror strikes, Task Force 21 has been dispatched to help before the situation gets out of hand.&#60;/P&#62;&#60;BR&#62;
    &#60;BR&#62;
    &#60;P&#62;Enemy forces in the vicinity are thought to be comprised of 50-300 fighters, with some heavy weaponry, light vehicles and possibly light armor. Some foriegn Jihadi fighters may also be present. The enemy is widely dispersed with strong concentrations in the urban centers. It is also believed that a local warlord has set up his headquarters in your AO. His capture or elimination would be a great help to the host country.&#60;/p&#62;

    <warning: person without army training>
    well I certainly don&#39;t mind realism in OFP missions, but what puts me off most of the times is the cryptic usage of acronyms in briefings and radio comms that are absolutely Chinese to me and that make it almost impossible for me to understand what is expected: "Get your TF to the AO, but take care to check the Bn on all TTA&#39;s at any time. Contact your AFFA after DD and then proceed to extraction".

    could somebody please clarify the most commonly used acronyms?
