Default Luxembourg in T2K 1st Ed canon

Mods: feel free to move or delete if this has been covered.

Do we know what happened to Luxembourg in T2K? Did the Duchy send forces to accompany NATO or were they almost immediately "co-opted" into neutrality by Belgium and France?

IIRC reading somewhere that French and Belgian forces overran the Duchy when they established the Dead Zone-but cannot remember where or if it was official?

What say the board members?

Luxembourg isn't mentioned at all in the NATO Vehicle Guide (which, technically, might be a v2 product). I checked the Challenge Magazine index and there's no entry specifically for Luxembourg (although it might be mentioned in any number of articles). A Google search for "Luxembourg Twilight 2000" didn't turn up anything of immediate relevance.

One could infer from Luxembourg's omission from the NATO Vehicle Guide, or any other canonical NATO ORBAT that I'm aware of, that it remained neutral or, more likely, was subsumed by the Franco-Belgian Union at some point during the Twilight War.

That gives Ref's tabula raza, as far as Luxembourg is concerned. Perhaps a unit of Luxembourgian volunteers served in the German Army during WWIII.

That makes a great deal of sense. I can't picture Luxembourg sending its entire company-sized force eastward to accompany NATO-maybe attaching a platoon to Dutch or German forces.

I have to agree with you that Luxembourg was probably absorbed by the French-Belgian coalition with perhaps a few surviving personnel loyal to NATO fighting on with whomever.

At one point during the Cold War I remember that a number of AWACS were "flagged" as being from Luxembourg even though Luxembourg did not have an air force per se. Recovering a Luxembourg flagged AWACS hidden away somewhere might make for a T2K adventure plot/maguffin...
