Hey Phil, I have renamed the Soviet formations and want to make this availablle to you so as to avoid extra work. If you like I can email you the files so you can continue with the OOB work.
That would be great ... email is at the bottom of my sig, I think, or ...
Also, I have a few further ideas about the german Panzer formations:
It seems the standard practise, in theroy, was to have 2 x leichte (light) Company, and 1 x mittlere (medium) company in each Pz Bn so we could use this as a starting point and add seperate Bn for those PzD that had more than 1.
This would give the PzDv some needed flexability with their panzer regiments as now all tanks are in one counter usually with the armoured infantry too. This is tactially inferior to the Soviets and ahistorical.
From my German TO&E thread ... organisation of an Army Panzer Division ...
1st PzGr Regiment: 1800 Infantry, 200 x Engineers, 250 Trucks, 120 x Halftrack, 15x 50mm AT, 10 x 37mm AT, 10 x 75mm LeIG, 5 x 150mm SIG33, 5 x Marder II, 5 x 20mm AA
2nd PzGr Regiment: 1800 Infantry, 200 x Engineers, 350 Trucks, 60 x Halftrack, 15x 50mm AT, 10 x 37mm AT, 10 x 75mm LeIG, 5 x 150mm SIG33, 5 x Marder II, 5 x 20mm AA
3rd Panzer Regiment: 65 x Pz II, 100 x Pz III, 50 x Pz IV
4th Artillery Regiment: 200 2nd Rate Infantry, 25 x 105mm LeFH, 5 x 100mm K8, 10 x 150mm SFH, 150 Trucks
Note: The above is based on a 3 Battalion Armoured Regiment with each Battalion having 2 Light and 1 Medium Tank Coy, which is the standard TO&E, as you say.
I am not sure about where to put the Infantry in Halftracks ... there's one Battalion of it in one of the two PzGr Regiments, and one Company in the other ... maybe it should be placed in the Panzer Regiment?
Which is what I have (for the moment) done with the SS Motorised Divisions (see below) which would more properly reflect its deployment in actuality, wither that or have a 3rd PzGr "Regiment" with the Halftrack Infantry (and, probably the Engineers, which I have really just subsumed as "Infantry" in the PzGr Regiments) ... giving a 5 element Division?
Note: The SS Panzer Regiment (a one Battalion Regiment, as per 19th Pz, but different mix of tanks), as I have currently modded it, has the Halftrack Infantry element (which was a separate Battalion in the SS Divisions, the regular PzGr Regiments were, according to TO&E, only Motorised at this stage) and the additional StuG Battalion that was with the Liebstandarte (but not the Wiking).
