Default Another Middle-East OOB

I changed the title as I went largely away from cannon when treating the Middle East. That OOB is also better for T2013 or so I think.

I never liked the idea of Iran siting with US. Therefore, Iran is with Russia and engaged in war with the Allied. However, US is fully backing Jundullah and what was the Baluchi's terrorist organization became a full army corps.

Saudi Arabia collapsed but the army is still there, backed by the allied. Regular troops (army and air force) are stationed in Iraq and they obey the allied command. Most soldiers were allowed to bring their family and they now represent a sizable community in US allied Iraq. SANG troops, however, remained in Saudi Arabia and they are the backbone of the Mekha-Jeddah Califate.

The official government of Iraq, as the Kurds, is with the allied. The sunni guerilla has received equipments from Russia and reformed a New Republican Guard. The Shiite are, then, backed by Iran.

1st Transport Squadron: Dassault Falcon 20, Rockwell Shrike Commander, Fokker F-27-400M/600M

TFB 9: Bandar Abbas (NAS Bandar Abbas satellite field)

1st ASW Squadron: ASH-3D Sea King
1st Helo Squadron: AB-205, AB-206

Notes:

11th TFS is a MiG-29 squadron IRL
12th TFS is an F-4E squadron IRL
51st TFW is equipped with Chengdu F-7M Airguards; a PRC variant of the MiG-21F-13. In T2K the F-7s were sold to the U.S. in 1994 by the Iran Nowin Government and F-16s supplied in return
81st TFW is F-14A equipped IRL. In T2K, the F-14s were rebuilt in the U.S. by Grumman to D standard, with the intention of having all of Iran’s F-14s so upgraded, however the outbreak of the Iranian Civil War and of the Sino-Soviet War prevented the completion of the program.
This unit was a Pasdaran (Iranian Revolutionary Guards Command) squadron IRL, but the Iran Nowin Government transferred all IRGC air assets to the Iranian AF.
The Iranian Army ordered AH-64As in 1994, before the Civil War broke out, and as an interim measure, all of Iran’s AH-1s were to be upgraded to the T standard, with both TOW and Hellfire capability. Only the Kerman Group’s helos were so upgraded before the Civil War broke out. The AH-64 order was diverted to the U.S. Army after the outbreak of U.S./Soviet hostilities. The Mi-8/17s and Mi-24s were ex-Iraqi helos flown to Iran in 1991.
The Iranian AF evaluated the ex-Iraqi aircraft that landed in Iran during DESERT STORM, and only kept the MiG-29s, Su-24s, Su-25s, and Il-76s. All other aircraft after evaluation, including MiG-23s and Su-20/22s, were used as decoys at various air bases, or as targets on bombing ranges. Iraqi Civil-registered aircraft were also impounded and put into service with Iranian airlines. Several captured Kuwaiti airliners flown to Iran were returned to Kuwait at the conclusion of DESERT STORM.
The Khomeni Regime ordered 36 MiG-29s and 12 Su-24s in 1989, and these were delivered in 1990 IRL. In T2K the Iran Nowin decided to keep the aircraft in service pending replacement by either F-16s or F/A-18s in the case of the MiG-29s, and F-15Es in the case of the Su-24s. No order was placed before the Civil War broke out, as Danilov wanted to maintain Iran as a neutral in the Gulf region, and ordered MiG and Sukhoi to continue parts support and maintenance programs for the Iranians up until the Soviet invasion. The aircraft had Western IFF installed and were painted with special markings to preclude friendly fire incidents after December 1996.

62nd Sqn (5 F-4D)
91st Sqn (3 C-130)

The Iranian has got loads of spareparts for their aircrafts thru USA when the war begun. Therefore they could make airworthy a larger part of their old airforce.

Matt Wiser

Good work on a ground OB, but you have some things wrong with the Iranian AF, may I suggest:

11th TFS: at least two more F-4Es and another RF-4E.
21st TFS: F-5s seem OK.
61st TFS was and still is an F-4E unit. The F-14s are concentrated in the 81st, 82nd, and 83rd TFS. 81st and 82nd are at Khatami-Esfhahan (TFB , the 83rd is at Meherabad IAP/TFB 1.
62nd TFS is also an F-4E squadron.
91st is a TFS: they are F-4E equipped, they're known as the Sharks. C-130s are in the 11th and 12th TTS.
F-4Ds are in either the 101st TFS at Chah Bahar, or in the 306th TFS at Shahroki-Hamadan AB.
No Su-24s? They are in the 71st and 72nd TFS at Shiraz AB. MiG-29s are in the 12 TFS and the 23rd TFS. (Mehrabad IAP/TFB1 and Tabriz AP/TFB 2.

There would only be four active ABs in 2000: Shiraz International (known as TFB 7), Bushehr (TFB 6) Omidyeh (TFB 5) and Bandar Abbas (TFB 9) . Where are the squadrons located?

Thanx Matt for the Iranian AF OOB, I wasn't shure on the fact I had aviable =)

I buy your version any day.

Matt Wiser

If you want, use my RDF OB from a while back: the Iranian AF is included. Your ground info is dead on.

Antenna

Well, I checked your AF OOB two days ago and send it to one of the yahoo lists to someone that needed OOBs about the Gulf/T2k =)

I looks really good =)

Antenna

What to do with the US forces that enter the RDF domain from Europe Dec/2000 ?

Well, here is one idea I run a couple of years ago (found notes remeber this is when the net was young and innocent)

~200 men would go to US Navy
~600 men would go to US Airforce

That leaves us with ~5100 men (true the book says 6,000 men but I said 5,900 men instead in my notes, not a misscalc just how I wanted it)

Well, these troops would on their journey to Iran have a rough idea what forces they could form and would have had limited infosharing with a higher command what was aviable in these 5,900 men force.

So here is my take on US Army addition (note that these forces would have to train togther for at least 1-2 months before entering the fighting ranks, just to give the troopers an idea what unit they are in the gulf)

511th ABN RGT (700 men)
90th MTN RGT (600 men)
27th LTH CAV/MOTO RGT (1,000 men, 6 M101A1)
28th LTH CAV/MOTO RGT (1,000 men, 6 M101A1)
29th LTH CAV/MOTO RGT (1,000 men, 6 M101A1)

Diffenerent "replacments/strengthen up" for various Support units : 600 men


The question about Iraqi Army when there came revised OOBs for the USA Forces in the Gulf made me do this. The Forces in Iraqi Armed Forces is taken before the War on Terror and the attack on Iraq. The Divisions has been moved around a little to also be more true to the RDF SB OOB. Some notes is also added. The armed Forces on the ground is the regular army and the Republican Guard (who ihas best equipment). There is also 10,000 men and women in the defence battalions, they still only have AKM assault guns and SKS rifles. Later on I will try to get my view on other equipment and the Iranian Forces.

Twilight war started, the armed forces of UAE and Dubai only had recived 80 BMP-3's
out of around 430 vehicles. None of the 469 Leclercs was delivered to the countries.
Instead they got their hands on second hand vehicles. Still even if the army is
realtive large it cannot support actions outside the borders due to largely a
not so well developed support force. Also the lack of Anti-armor weapons

While not following RDF at all, but rather LAW0369's idea of what would happen in
the gulf, the reinforcment would come from Korea in 2001. After the European
evacutaion of US troops the fleet steams for Korea to get troops home. All troops
in Korea (except 41si Inf Div and 45th Inf Div) is shiped to the gulf. I would
point out that ideas is for this I got from LAW0369 and Frank Frey.

OOB Israeli Army
In the Twilight war the Israeli army philosophy was to have a core of rediness
for each division that would basically be 2 battalions at high alert in Israel.
The strength would within hours be 4 folded from original strength within 36
hours. This is basically the theory what the israeli army would do if she got
invaded to wage war on their neighbours. Still 36th Division occupies the line
from Tyre to Golan Heights and has full strength.
NOTE : this OOB reflect the strength before call up, aditional men will ad to
the formations when they get called up.
