Default Your Personal Unit ORBATS

As I try to fine tune some of my units in my campaign, I find it challenging when I need to modify a unit from its original concept to meet the T2K restrictions. Writing a unit ORBAT from scratch it s PITA.

Would you guys mind posting some of your own small unit ORBATS? I mean things detailed down to weapons and vehicles each squad uses not just a unit designation and thats it.

Anything you all have come up with, or seen else where, would be great.

I don't have any written up on hand, but I would suggest a few rules of thumb:

- A commander should have between three and five subordinates reporting to him. Any more than that, and he will likely be overwhelmed. This does not rule out temporary attachments and support elements.

- Infantry sub-units try to build around the machine guns/SAWs/whatever.

- Most commanders like to have a recon element, as well as indirect fire support and antitank weapons.

- Tankers and gunners like to be massed in as few units as possible, so that they can have the greatest effect on the battle. This goes for aircraft, too, but that's not so much a worry by T2k.

- Don't forget the medics and mechanics.

I don't have any them written down or the materials right now. Seems to have been mislocated temporarily.

At 'squad' level depending on how you describe it, and what the unit does it will be self-contained with no sub-units (many in T2k would move to this format depending on your taste) to 3 sub-units (fire teams). Many have to other sub-units assigned such as Anti-Tank Team, FIST TEAM, Forward Observer Team, Machinegun Team, Scout/Sniper Team, etc on the mission to mission details dictate and the parent unit has resources to hand out. AFV (Tank) Squad would be the crew of an individual Tank, IFV/APC/CFV/ACCV (M2/M3/M113/LAV-25/Stryker would have the crew and dismount teams.

At 'Platoon' level again it depends on what you type of units the unit was and resources it may have acquired depending on the GM feel for it. In general again small HQ, 2-4 of the above Squads. They may or may not have medical services and Forward Observer Team assigned depending on the resources of higher headquarters. Depending on the Platoon mission they may have 'Weapons' Squad which would hold the platoons MG Teams and/or AT Teams, again depending on how you want to deal with either team. Some would attached MG team to a squad (especially if the Platoon is only two squads), while AT teams may be Company asset, regardless it can be part of the regular squad or like in Mechanized infantry of the US, have a designated gunner with each dismount team with another assigned to help them within the dismount team.

At 'Company' Level depending on the unit will have HQ, 2-4 Platoons, and then will start having 'Support' Platoon or 'Weapons/Anti-Tank/Mortar' Platoon depending on the function of the Company. Again it may have other Platoons attached from higher HQ depending on the resources. Some Mechanized/Armor units may have their Companies organized as 'Teams' in which they have 1 or 2 Mechanized Platoons and 1 or 2 Armor Platoons, and may have Mechanized Anti-Tank Platoon or Section (Half of a Platoon) depending on parent HQ resources, in an attempt to make the Company a Combined Arms Company.

At 'Battalion' Level will find HQ, Headquarters Company, Support Company, and 2 to 5 'Line' Companies, at 4 'Line' Companies one has to think about if it would be wiser to make two Battalions, but in T2K resources may dictate that large Battalion would be more of an advantage than two weaker one. If it is Mechanized/Armor HQ, you may find Engineer and other such Company attached. If Light Infantry it may be platoon size element attached. Start of the Combined Arms concept. Also the Battalion would have Mortar Platoon, Signal Platoon, Transport Platoon and Scout Platoon, as well Medic Platoon with aid station/evacuation station.

Regiment depending on the Army may be or may not be hq. In many case it either treated as Battalion or Brigade level depending which nationality you are dealing with.

A 'Brigade' level will find HQ with mix of Battalions with 2-5 of that are of the task for the Brigade. With a Forward/Sustainment/Support Battalion and similar units assigned to them. Will start to see wider range of units with different skills at Company level and above show up here. Also will host many of the Support elements assigned from Division and Corps HQ.

'Division' would be organized much similar to a Brigade with HQ, 2-5 Brigades of what the Division is suppose to be. They may also have Artillery Brigade, Engineer Brigade, Aviation Brigade (Next to nothing T2K depending where you are at), and 1 Support Battalion and other supporting units. This HQ may or may not be in the OOB that you would want to use. In WWII the Soviets Mechanized and Armored Corps HQ had direct control of Brigades and served as the intermediate hq between Army and Brigade.

'Corps' and on up. Will have two to five sub units, maybe more if a Corps has no Divisions along with supporting Brigades and Battalions as need. Will attach sub units of the supporting Brigades and Battalions to their sub units as they feel is needed to achieve their objectives at the current time.

At Corps level or above in some place like the Soviet Army HQ had direct control of the Division working under it, they usually had 3 to 5 Division. Any more than that they would usually create another Army. Also some military establishments have done away with Divisional Command all together or like the US have them set up more fluid where a Division HQ has some support units and then the combat brigades are added for the situation.

Basically if you coming up with something for T2K and not too worried about what the units looked like before the war. Use your imagination. If you google a particular unit you can find the OOB of the particular units (Division/Regiment usually). Won't give you a break down, down to platoon level, but give you rough idea. If you can find a Division around 1990 or before look at those. I usually look for WWII version, Vietnam era one if I can find one, something from then 1980s and one from the 1990s and as I am right now currently rebuilding the US Army Divisions. If you look hard enough you can find on down to Platoon Level but you have to know where to look.

If you have access to the first 4 modules. Look at the organization details they give for the Krakow ORMO (formerly the 8th Polish MRD) in the Free City of Krakow. Then look at the 14th Polish MRD overall organization in Black Madonna, and then the Ruins of Warsaw look at each community ORMOs and how the General of the 10th Soviet Guards Tank Division organize the remains of his Division.

Also Kato posted a thread that about the 5th US Mechanized Division and the XI Corps. Look at that too.

Krakow can be gear toward any unit on both side, but works best for Pact Motorized units, but after reviewing what Grea had done with the 5th Mech and GWD had done with 14th Polish MRD and 10th Soviet GTD you can see that the door is wide open for you to build from the ground up.

Hope it helps you some...

You can find a whole host of US Army TOE's at the Federation of American Scientists' website

http://www.fas.org/man/dod-101/army/unit/toe/

It may or may not help you - it's obviously based on pre War levels, and some might argue that it actually has too much information(!), but it might be worth a look.

This is a quick rundown of the OOB I built for the Butchers of Ropczyce, a marauder group listed in the Free City of Krakow. I thought Id post it as an example.
For play, Ill print it out and use an NPC record sheet I have laminated. Units that get wrecked by the PCs are crossed off the main list and I can keep using the laminated sheets over and over again. The list doesnt have much diversity when you lok at it, that has to be added by the GM.

This is another OOB I had lying around from a pretty good campaign I ran involving an attempt 2nd Marine Division made to rescue the 5th Infantry Division from the original adventure that came with 1st edition boxed set. I had pretty much run "Death of a Division" into the ground so I thought this would be a fun twist.
The group is the PCs and NPCs I used for the game play, any names in bold were the Players.

Echo Company, 2/2 Marines

1st Lt Jack Seaver, CO M16A2 Binos,
PRC-68

1st platoon
SSGT Tom Calder 1st plt sgt M16A2 Binos, PRC-68
LCPL Dave Cross M16A2/203 AT-4
LCPL Sara Hildeman M249
LCPL Sean Andrews M16A2 PRC-77
LCPL Mike Schulyer M16A2 AT-4
LCPL Julio Gustino M16A2/203
LCPL Art Hadrian M249
LCPL Sam Allen M16A2 20lb C-4,
Demo equip,
1 AT mine

2nd platoon

I'll try to dig mine out. I had all the teams in the PC's unit in my campaign written up on file cards, with their names, ranks, positions in the unit, nicknames, personal call signs and important weapons and equipment. Problem is I packed it all away when my campaign ended and my fiance moved in. I will eventually post it all, its just going to take some time.

Heehee.....I did filecards for a while too, and of course the good dog would paw them off the table...or some get lost, etc. Also I started losing my mind doing card after card with as fast as I go through NPCs, so I just build lists like the one above now. Its simpler and I REALLY try to restrict myself to just the details you see there. Anything else I found was taking too much away from story building.

You've still got the 5th as an effective and intact unit?
That's a huge departure. It implies you've radically changed the events of 2000 over a large scale too, especially when the 8th's location is also considered.

Lets try not to discuss WHY people have the units organized the way they do and just leave it a thread about HOW they did it please.

This is a very old attempt of mine to reconcile the canon 8th Mechanized values. Even nearly doubling the available manpower I still feel it is vastly understating the support needed (esp after reading Grae's 5th Mech doc)

I think it's worth hearing why people did what they did if it's radically different from the established histories. A simple list of units and their strengths only goes so far...

Dog6 covered this in the "LAV-75; Stingray; M8 AGS" thread. His world seems radically different from canon in many respects.

I have had that doc since before I found this forum. I literally spent months playing around with it before deciding that the "barely 1000" men could never support the 8th Mech's declared equipment. It therefore languished in my docs folder until now. Hope someone can build upon it.

Edit: I should note that I threw in a few exotic vehicles (M1AEV, M5AVR, M1 Bridge, etc) just to give myself some options as a GM. They probably should be replaced with a M88, a M113 and a M60 AVLB. The Anti Air assets are also probably too high, but the EESB does mention several stingers per infantry company, so I included them.

I like the work you've done. I'm especially appreciative that you've maintained the spirit of Twilight: 2000 in your organization. I note that the 91st ID hasn't come across any hidden stockpiles of tanks and TOW missiles. The battalions are quite small. This is a weak division, but it's exactly the sort of combat formation one would expect in late 2000/early 2001. Nicely done!

This is an orbat for a small civillian unit that I faced in a twilight 2000 game. They were a small light unit something like the selous scouts.

Sqaud Leader:
M59 SKS, 100 rounds 7.62x39mm
2-F1 hand grenades

Rifleman/Grenadier:
M59/66 SKS, 100 rounds 7.62x39mm
4-anti tank rifle grenades

Rifleman/Grenadier:
M59/66 SKS, 100 rounds 7.62x39mm
4-anti tank rifle grenade

Rifleman/Grenadier:
M59/66 SKS,100 rounds 7.62x39mm
4-anti tank rifle grenade

Rifleman/Grenadier:
M59/66 SKS, 100 rounds 7.62x39mm
4-anti tank rifle grenade

Sniper:
M-48 Mauser Rifle Zrak 4X24mm ONM76 scope
100 round 7.92x57mm
TT-33, 25 rounds 7.62x25mm, 3-8 round magazines.


fighting agaisnt this small 6 man unit was remarkably challenging despite the fact they where only armed with SKS's. While some of the rifleman accurately aimed and fired their rifles at us,we took cover and others fired rifle grenades at us pinning us down. When the men in my unit broke from cover to fire at the grenadiers the unit sniper picked them off and they whole team was supported by accurate rifle fire.

The unit I was in was what what left of a Russian motor rifle sqaud. We had 5 guys armed with AK-74's and one PKM machine gunner. We had no RPG's or GP-25 and no sniper, they took out our Machine gunner imediatly and everytime a rifleman in the company picked up the machine gun they shot him. A couple of other Russians soldiers were wounded by shrapnel from the rifle grenades. We did manage to wound the sqaud leader after which they broke contact.

Weak by the standards we normally assign to formations, but by 2000/2001 the reformed 91st would be a preetty powerful formation...except for the level of training of the majority of the troops. The adventure is built around forming up and testing the unit against Soviet, Mexican and marauder elements in Southern California.
With a little research, I figured it would make more sense for this kind of formation to pull the 106mm rcls back out as the ammunition would be easier to manufacture and the system has many less quirks. Its the mortar equivalent for the anti-tank side and can be used for bunker busting too.
Thanks btw

I agree, if it wasn't for my research projects, I'm pretty sure my head would have exploded by now
