It looks like that chart is from 1986/87 and it also lists the Berlin Bde as 199th

It makes me wonder. There is nothing in the lineage of either bde that shows that actually happening though. I wonder if there wasnt a plan to reflag the Berlin Bde because the bde had no combat history something similar to the School Bde/6th ADA Bde being reflagged to 30th ADA Bde and it didnt happen because the cold war ended. maybe it would have happened if the bde had transformed to AOE configuration?

Chief of Staff Army Total Army Analysis 1992 Force Program Decision Briefing

https://emu.usahec.org/alma/multimed...025463I001.pdf

Apparently the Army did one of these "Program Objective Memorandum" biennially for review by the Office of SECDEF.

Again the above document should be read in conjunction with this:

https://history.army.mil/html/books/...H%2040-1-1.pdf

Chapters 1 & 2

Chico, please I hope you do! I have the researcher at the Ridgeway Library looking for a 1989-90 version. I’m also looking for an updated, again for 1989-90, force allocation chart.

Not sure, I could understand one additional. The expectation that the Blackhorse might not be in the best of shape after the initial Soviet thrust thru Fulda. As for two, no idea.

Also interesting is the 199th uses the infantry Bde symbol and not mech Bde. Another is Indiana was scheduled to get an SF aviation battalion.

Didnít the Berlin Bde have three Inf Bns scaled as Air Assault J-Series Inf but each with a Coys worth of M-113s? IIRC the Tank Coy jumped from 14 to 22 around 1989.

So,

Has anyone ever done a comparison of the 1989 NATO and PACT forces to their in-game assignments and how does it compare to this info at the army's historical website archive?
