Default Cuban OOB

Does anyone have any good information about the Cuban OOB in the mid-1990s or know of any information sources where I can research this, in particular information about regiment designations and which units are regulars (including conscripts) and which are reservists?

Wikipedia has the following information for 1996 (which is from Jane’s Information Group, so is presumably reliable):

The Cuban Revolutionary Army (Ejercito Revolucionario) was organized into three Territorial Military Commands with three Armies, one army for each command and there were an estimated 38,000 army personnel.

Revolutionary Army Command:
  • Airborne brigade consisting of 2 battalions (at Havana and its immediate environs)
  • Artillery division (at Havana and its immediate environs)
  • SAM Brigade
  • An anti-aircraft artillery regiment

Western Army (deployed in the capital and the provinces of Havana and Pinar del Río)
  • 1st Armored Training Division
  • 70th Mechanised Division
  • 78th Armored Division "Sanguily Rescue"
  • 2nd (Pinar del Río) Army Corps:
    - 24th Infantry Division
    - 27th Infantry Division
    - 28th Infantry Division

Central Army (Provinces of Matanzas, Villa Clara, Cienfuegos and Sancti Spiritus)
  • 81st Infantry Division
  • 84th Infantry Division
  • 86th Infantry Division
  • 89th Infantry Division
  • 12th Armored Regiment/1st Armored Division
  • 242nd Infantry Regiment/24th Infantry Division
  • 4th (Las Villas) Army Corps:
    - 41st Infantry Division
    - 43rd Infantry Division
    - 48th Infantry Division

Eastern Army (Provinces of Santiago de Cuba, Guantánamo, Granma, Holguín, Las Tunas, Camagüey and Ciego de Avila)
  • 3rd Armored Division
  • 6th Armored Division
  • 9th Armored Division
  • 31st Infantry Division
  • 32nd Infantry Division
  • 38th Infantry Division
  • 84th Infantry Division
  • 90th Infantry Division
  • 95th Infantry Division
  • 97th Infantry Division

Guantanamo Frontier Brigade
  • 123rd Infantry Division/former 12th Infantry Division
  • 281st Infantry Regiment/28th Infantry Division
  • 5th (Holguín) Army Corps:
    - 50th Mechanised Division
    - 52nd Infantry Division
    - 54th Infantry Division
    - 56th Infantry Division
    - 58th Infantry Division
  • 6th (Camagüey) Army Corps:
    - 60th Mechanised Division
    - 63rd Infantry Division
    - 65th Infantry Division
    - 69th Infantry Division

Now there is an obvious error with this information, the 84th Infantry Division appears twice, and the 28th Infantry Division is mentioned twice, though it may well be split with Regiments in different locations, so does anyone have a better information source than Jane’s via Wikipedia?

Additionally, it seems like the Cuban naming convention for the structure of the Revolutionary Army is to add a digit for each sub unit. For example:
  • 2nd Army Corps:
    - 24th Infantry Division
    --- 242nd Infantry Regiment
Does anyone know if this is correct?

If it is then it allows a GM to create regiment names if needed.

Thanks for any help with this.
