I see you moved the 193rd from Panama to Puerto Rico-and on a Navy Base no less! They would have gone to Fort Buchanan instead. You forgot one brigade that's been on the forum: Frank Frey revived the 173rd Airborne Brigade and I believe it was 1995 when reactivated IRL. Since he never indicated where the Sky Soldiers were reactivated in T2K-where do you think they were stood up? Benning or Bragg? He did include a reactivated WW II battalion: the 555th PIB (which was the first all-black airborne unit-never saw combat and used stateside as smoke jumpers on forest fires). His composite Avn Bn, the 228th, used OH/AH-6s, UH-1s and AH-1s. Substitute Blackhawks for Hueys, and while AH-64s would be overkill in Kenya, given the level of opposition, the Marines loaning the Army some Marine AH-1Ws with NTS would help out at night. There was something else IIRC: the 228th was also flying some A-1 Skyraiders they found in Mombasa awaiting shipment to the Confederate Air Force when the nukes fell.


193rd IB was moved to Puerto Rico because IRL it inactivated in 1994. I felt the brigade would have been moved instead of being inactivated in this timeline.
http://www.red-devils.org/_regtcoat/inf_5081bat.asp http://www.warrantedgrafix.com/SEP_BDES/193INFBDE.htm

As for where I stationed the Brigade, Fort Buchanan is a relatively small facility (only 700 acres) and would not accomidate a brigade sized force. The only solution I saw, was to move the brigade to the much larger Roosevelt Roads facility (6800 acres).

BTW the Brigade would have redeployed to the canal zone when the war broke out anyways.

173rd Airborne Brigade was not reactivated IRL until 12 June 2000. This comes from multiple sources including the brigade's own website. So I did not include it in pre-war brigades. It will be included in a different list of units activated during the war.

As for Frank Frey.......

While going through some old T2K notes, I found my hand drawn AO map foe western Kenya. I used the map in a Merc: 2000 campaign. Here are some of the concepts for the T2K campaign.
1.) The main American unit in Kenya is the 173rd Airborne Brigade. It was reactivated in 1996. (oob available). It was orignally tasked as CentComm's mobile reserve force but wound in Kenya protecting the oil refineries there.
2.) The Kenya military in T2K is still a very potent force. They work with the American paratroopers in keeping things relatively orderly.
3.) The two main enemy organizations are the PARA (Pan African Revolutionary Army) a loose amalgamation of various tribal militias and warlord armies and Jundullah (Soldiers of God), a radical Muslim group that wants to establish a theocracy in East Africa.

Anyway, those are the basics. I didn't really get much else done.

As best as I can reconstruct it the, the 173rd AB deployed the following assets in Kenya.
HHC 173rd Abn Bde
173rd Recon Company (Airborne)(LRRP)
173rd Intelligence Company (Airborne)
173rd Engineer TF (Airborne)
1 Bn/ 503rd Parachute Infantry
2 Bn/ 503rd Parachute Infantry
3 Bn/ 503rd Parachute Infantry (Lt. Motorized)
4 Bn/ 503rd Parachute Infantry (Airmobile)
173rd Aviation Company
173rd Artillery Battalion (Airborne)(105mm)

There were units that were attached to the 173rd. IIRC, one of them was the 228th Aviation Battalion.

Frank Frey

Frank also had an OOB/TOE for the 228th Aviation Battalion but I can not find the copy I had of it at this time.


I was a taking a second look through this thread and saw I forgot a brigade.
