Default 4th soviet Guards Army

About 4th soviet guards army.

If i understand correctly so is this army a big reason to the failure of the spring 2000 offensive.

1. Does it mention anywhere from ware they received it's fuel from?
It's must be a huge source of supply if you are going to move an army with 1 TD and two MRD to Poland from white Russia.

2. Where ware these unit stationed prior to the move to Poland 2000.

Found this.

According to one of the rumors in Escape from Kalisz,
"A vehicle driver tells you that the 4th Guards Tank Army was able to move so fast because it's running on gasoline! A whole month's output from the Ploesti oil fields in Romania was earmarked for the 4th Guards just so the Warsaw Pact would have one mobile army. There are thousands, maybe millions, of liters of it in the supply dumps of the division. A lot of supply officers are getting rich selling it to the black market."

Escape from Kalisz module included in the 1st ed. boxed set.

If I remember correctly the 4th was stationed in Belarus prior to moving out to counter the 2000 offensive.

If I remember correctly the 4th Guards Tank Army was part of Group of Tank Armies that were in reserve position. The other Army by 2000 had converted over to Cavalry. The 4th GTA even with Motorized Rifle Division was quite under strength too. I believe one of the Divisions of this the 4th GTA went on rampage shortly after entering Poland, the 9th Tank Division if I remember correctly.

The 22nd Soviet Cavalry Army, now that I remember the name of the Cavalry Army had over ran the positions of the 10th Soviet Guard Tank Division Which itself had been re-outfitted with T-55s, before it switch sides to NATO. In fact, I think many units of the 22nd Cavalry Army were themselves on the verge of declaring for NATO.
