Syrian IV Corps (as RDF Sourcebook)

I have uised some historical docemnts on this, still the commando groups is a fabrication of my mind.




Your post reminded me about something I've been wondering... In the NATO Vehicle Guide it mentions a Turkish Division watching the Syrian Border. It has only 900 men listed and since I don't yet have RDF Sourcebook, was there mention of any engagements between Syria and the Turks to account for such a weakened unit?

Well, that Bde watching the Turkey border is back uped by the reserve force at Headquarters. And the 89th has its base in Aleppo (Halab). What I forgot to write is location for entire Syrian Army. But the Turkish Army cannot really move upon Syria becouse of the tention between Grecce and USSR. Also you must remind yourself of the mountaines country of turkey they don't easilly move a corps or anything easilly exept on roads, and there are only one hub you could move from turkey to syria and thats thru Halab. The eastern hub is near USSR troops. So therefore the 89th guard the northern frontier and the headquarters BDEs is kept as reseve either if Israel, Jordania or Turkey would attack, the later not really possible.
You should consider that at least 2 of the brigades from reserve forces is between Halab and Damascus (it aint just written).
