Default KGB Border Guard Orbat

for the first time in (unclassified!) English, it's the KGB Border Guards. For more details on these guys, there is a description in the RDF Sourcebook. Most of these units remained "Border Guard Brigades", with only one mechanized infantry battalion and limited heavy weapons and armored vehicles. The KGB Motor-Rifle Regiments, modeled on KGB units in action in Afghanistan in the 1980s, are mechanized infantry regiments with 3-5 infantry battalions in BTRs and BMPs, an air assault battalion and an engineer company. For T2k, add in a company of tanks to each battalion and a battery of light artillery and BM-21s. The Border Guard Brigades remain on or within 100km of the Soviet frontier; the Motor-Rifle Regiments roam far and wide. The "Special Border Control Battalions" are fairly boring customs and immigration police working ports, rail entrance stations and international airports. The KGB units embedded in Red Army units, those that guard nuclear warheads, VIPs, Lenin's tomb and KGB facilities, and KGB Special Operations forces (the famous Alpha unit, but also some of the others such as Sigma) are generally too small, too specialized or too far away from contact with NATO troops to be listed here - and they reported to other parts of the (massive) KGB structure, although the Border Guards were often a source of recruits for those organizations.

Default KGB Border Troops (post T2K)

Here is the Orbat I came up with (FBS in my case). The Arctic District doesn't really exist anymore except for border troops. In any other case, troops that were stationed there had been attached to the North-west District or St. Petersburg VO. Border Guards personnels have played a major role in the destruction of the NATO fleet that attempted the attack on Karelia.

For the Polish Internal Troops, I just threw my hands up in frustration. The army was reluctant to be used for internal security tasks, so the communist government set up a host of other paramilitary armed formations:

MO (militia) - regular police.
ORMO (voluntary reserve of the police) - kind of police auxiliary,
some anti-civil disturbance role
ZOMO (mechanized units of the police) - riot cops, motorized with
some BTR-60s & BTR-152s.
NOMO (ZOMO reserves) - riot cop reserves - former ZOMO members
ROMO (police reserves) - former border guards, cops & such brought in
to supplement ZOMO, poorly organized, trained & equipped.
NJW (internal troops) - equivalent to Soviet MVD internal troops.
WOW (Internal army) - militia, intended for rear area security, some
units equivalent to Soviet MVD internal troops.
OT (Territorial defense) - another militia, territorial defense &
rear area security mission
SB (Secret police) - the real bad-asses, equivalent to Stasi,
Securitate, etc...

Rather than try to figure out orbats for all these organizations, the DC group is just going to throw them together into ad-hoc internal security groups when we wargame the Battle of Poland - a division of troops in Warsaw, a brigade or regiment in other cities over 250,000. (Smaller cities and formations don't figure into the Third World War wargame system).

I have yet to piece together a complete Soviet MVD orbat. I found Byelorussia's online somewhere and have parts of Ukraine's. It's definitely still a work in progress.

hmmm, lots here.

I never worried about ORBAT. Even larger groups of 10 or more, who cares about each individual unit/squad or whatever unit of scale the ORBAT is in. It seems to be too much info to me.

In any part of the T2K landscape, maybe it helps determine what you are more likely to run into. And really, given the world has gone to crap, anything is possible.

But individually numbered units ... its never been of interest to me because i couldnt see the point.
