The Turkish OOB was actually researched quite extensively by Frank Chadwick.

http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.co...7961481421.pdf

Taken from Frank Chadwick’s extensively researched “Combined Arms” OOBs, 1987. Gendarmerie and Army HQs from World Armies Today. Equipment holdings are from IISS’ 1990-1991 Military Balance and is current as of early
1990.

1. 1st Army - Thrace: (HQ: Istanbul)
a. 3rd Mechanized Division
b. 66th Mechanized Division
c. 2nd Infantry Division (M)
e. 4th Infantry Division (A)
f. 6th Infantry Division (M)
g. 8th Infantry Division (A)
h. 23rd Infantry Division (M)
i. 33rd Infantry Division (A)
j. 61st Infantry Division (A)
k. 65th Infantry Division (A)
l. 1st Armored Brigade
m. 2nd Armored Brigade

o. 41st Infantry Brigade
p. 18th Armored Regiment

2. 2nd Army - Asia Minor: (HQ: Konya)
a. 5th Armored Brigade

b. 39th Infantry Division (M)
c. 11th Infantry Brigade
e. 19th Infantry Brigade

5. Ankara
a. 15th Infantry Brigade
b. 28th Infantry Brigade
c. 62nd Separate Infantry Regiment
d. Commando Brigade
e. Airborne Brigade

6. Reserve Units
a. 1st Armored Division: equipped with older equipment
b. 58th Infantry Division (R)
c. 1st Infantry Brigade
d. 3rd Infantry Brigade
e. 5th Infantry Brigade
f. 57th Artillery Brigade: 1 155mm Howitzer bn, 3 155mm gun bn, 2 203mm howitzer bn, 1 M107 175mm SP bn
g. 58th Artillery Brigade: 1 155mm Howitzer bn, 3 155mm gun bn, 1 203mm howitzer bn, 1 M107 175mm SP bn
h. 59th Artillery Brigade: 1 155mm Howitzer bn, 3 155mm gun bn, 1 203mm howitzer bn, 1 M107 175mm SP bn

7. Gendarmerie – 110,000 strong, armed with light infantry weapons. Controlled by the Army in wartime officially,
but effectively the case during peacetime. Includes three mobile brigades in 2nd and 3rd Army areas.

The two NATO army guides in the game show the 1st Army as destroyed and the most of the remaining Turkish forces in the 12th and 3rd Armies. However there was no 12th Army in reality. Most likely it was a typo and should have been the 2nd Army (with the remnants of the 1st Army and the Reserve force attached to it.)

The Aegean Command should be referred to as the 4th Army. It does match the same units that Frank had in his OOB for the T2K OOB.

The biggest issue I see is the description of the armor that the Turkish Army had. The T2K guides state the tanks are either Leopard I or M60A4 tanks. However the true story is much different and allows a GM who wants to incorporate Turkish units to have a very large range of armor. As you can see below they actually had M-47, M48A1/2/T1/T2, M-41 and M-24 Chaffee tanks. There were very few Leopard tanks - most of which most likely if not all of them lost in the war in Thrace and Bulgaria.

If developed a couple of years earlier you might have some prototypes in service
