Given both Soviet and NATO doctrine, there would in a way be no front lines. Both sides called for deep-penetration raids by special operations, air assault, and airborne troops into the rear areas of the enemy, to destroy supplies, disrupt supply lines, and attack high-level command structures. Those female troops in the rear might find themselves on the receiving end of a Spetsnaz or Ranger attack. I used this in Korea when teaching how important to the troops at 2X (Division HQ) how important it was that they knew how to use all weapons at their disposal -- the North Koreans are on the Soviet playbook, and at that time REMFs were lucky if they knew one end of their M16 from the other. (That's not the case now days, from what I understand -- thank god.)
