If I remember correctly the 4th Guards Tank Army was part of Group of Tank Armies that were in reserve position. The other Army by 2000 had converted over to Cavalry. The 4th GTA even with Motorized Rifle Division was quite under strength too. I believe one of the Divisions of this the 4th GTA went on rampage shortly after entering Poland, the 9th Tank Division if I remember correctly.

The 22nd Soviet Cavalry Army, now that I remember the name of the Cavalry Army had over ran the positions of the 10th Soviet Guard Tank Division Which itself had been re-outfitted with T-55s, before it switch sides to NATO. In fact, I think many units of the 22nd Cavalry Army were themselves on the verge of declaring for NATO.
