I'm having a hard time locating detailed OOB's for the KMT (Nationalist Chinese) and CCP (Communist Chinese) regimes for my new scenario. I'm not able to locate any detailed information what soever, just vague information. if anyone can point me in the right direction it will be greatly appreciated. One would think there would be a ton of information on this other than Wiki, not the most reliable source of information out there

i have finally found an OOB for the Nationalist army, but back from 1941, so i will have to use this. 12 Infantry Divisions will be level 3 infantry, machineguns ect. which represents those divisions which were trained by the U.S. Also, those Divisions which are not level 3 will also have a readiness of 50 and a experience level of 25. I do not know the exact number of divisions but it totaled some 300,000 troops trained by the U.S. the rest will start out with level 1 everything. I'm still trying to obtain a OOB for the Communists.

A factor you might wish to consider:"Chinese Warlords". Some of the warlords local forces were well equipped,supplied or experienced. Both the nationalists and communists to an extent courted these warlords to join their factions or eliminated them if they did not.

To simulate this can you use the supply containers in the game? Or do event cards based on holding certain cities?

Just a thought. Good luck with this effort.

Thanks for the information, that is something I'm interested in doing....

1st screenshot is of Nationalist positions in Manchuria, 8 Divisions in this area are U.S. trained and equipped. Level 3 for the ROC (Republic of China) represent units which have received U.S. training. These units have full readiness and experience, while those units which are level 1 have full readiness, but experience level is only 25

Wiki (but in Chinese) provides the OOB (down to division level) of three decisive campaigns, namely HuaiHai(or Xu-Beng called by KMT), PingJin(named after BeiPing and Tianjin) and LiaoShen(literally the abbreviation of Liaoning-Shenyang). Although these campaigns happened in the last year of Chinese Civil war, I think the OOB could serve as a good instrument when you are trying to get the OOB at the beginning of the war.

I could find some materials in Chinese about the OOB at the begging of the war, but it was army level.

If the scenario is going to cover the whole period, a factor you may want to consider is the growing rate of PLA, which in the history started with 1.2 million in July 1946, then grew to 2.8 million in June 1948, and reached 4 million in June 1949.

I'll take any help I can get, cannot read Chinese though, but I'll take your help. I found a OOB for the Nationalist army but it is for 1941, what I'm trying to find now is a OOB for the communists side. I have not decided whether or not to make Russia active, as they were actively involved in the civil war either directly or indirectly, right now the only 2 regimes active are the Nationalist and Communists.

There are 13 regimes for this, but as I said above only 2 are active at the start, the other regimes do not activate unless attacked. Regimes are as follows

Nationalist China - active
Communist China - active
Soviet Union- undecided
Indo-China - asleep
Dutch East Indies - asleep
Japan - asleep
United States- asleep
Philippines - asleep
British India - asleep
Britain - asleep
British Malaysia -asleep
France - asleep
Mongolia - asleep

I have also made it where one can build a capital city ( this represents the communists capturing Beiping (Beijing) and making it their new capital, but to do this is very, very expensive in PP's. So if the communists capture Beiping and make it their new capital, then their current capital " Yen'an" can be changed back into a city.

I'm also curious if supply will travel through an ally nation, asking because the communist Chinese control northern Manchuria, while the Nationalist control southern Manchuria and while northern Manchuria is connected to the rest of Communist controlled China, a part of it is through mountains where there are no roads. So since CPC (communist party china) is allied with Mongolia will supply travel through Mongolia to the rest of CPC controlled territory that is adjacent to Mongolia....

one other thing, one of the Nationalist Corps in Manchuria is called " Manchurian advanced Corps" I have not been able to locate information on this Corps, so I'm assuming that this corps held Mechanized and light Armour units, or rather that is what I'm giving them. The mechanized units are U.S.trained as well and have level 2 Light Tanks (Stuart light tanks and M-3 halftracks). If anyone though has information regarding this Corps that I have not been able to find, please let me know as I will update these units accordingly.

About supply, I think most supply of PLA came from local people, mainly farmers. CPC built up many "liberated districts" during the War of Resistance Against Japan and the Civil War. In these areas, PLA took land from old landlords and distribute it to farmers, who actually worked on the land but did not own it. Since farmers benefited a lot from such land reform, they truly love the communist party and PLA. Therefore, PLA can get supply form local farmers and recruitment too. This explains why PLA was growing so fast.

After Japan surrendered, the communist party sent many troops to Manchuria and many experienced administrators who knew how to launch land reform in order to get support from local farmers. But short after, KMT also sent its elite troops to Manchuria and drove PLA out of southern Manchuria. PLA had a very tough time in northern Manchuria and was even threatened by banditry. Gradually, PLA eliminated banditry or converted them and built up "liberated districts".

Nationalist- have a main army corps HQ, called a " Army Group" then 1-3 or more Corps attached and from 2-4 Infantry Divisions attached to the corps. I have 4 pages of OOB for the Nationalist Chinese and I'm only on page 2, don't know if I will put all 4 pages of units onto the map, just too many. I haven't been able to find a good Airforce OOB, than what I have found so far, regarding the P-51 planes the Nationalists had. I did read where the CPC had an airforce, but they were flown by Soviet pilot's until Communist Chinese could be trained

Ask in the command Ops forum section about communist and nationalist OOB information sources. It's a very knowledgeable and helpful group that can pull information sources out of their posteriors. I'll lay odds they can site some good info sources.

doesn't appear at first the CPC had enough men to fight in Manchuria and protect their capital at "Yen'an". is this where their irregular forces took up the lack of trained regular main force units. As of right now I have the CPC starting first, but maybe I should have the ROC begin first. thank you very much, you have helped tremendously in regards to these OOB's

Irregular forces were mainly militia, most of which gradually became regular force. That is the reason why PLA grew that fast.

CPC sent in total 110,000 troops to Manchuria in the autunm of 1945. 6,000 were from Eighth Route Army's ShanDong military district; 30,000 from New Fourth Army in the Yangzi River area; the rest from military districts of ShaanXi and ShanXi and Heibei provinces.

At that time, Manchuri was the most industrilized ares in China. So CPC definitely wanted to occupy it before KMT could take any actions. Stalin also told Mao to do so. According to what I know, Mao at first planned to choose one major city in Manchuria as capital of his party.

I am not sure if Mao really need many troops to protect Yen'an. PLA was very good at guerilla warfare. In 1947, when Zongnan HU led 200,000 army to attach Yen'an. Mao left Yen'an and in some sense used himself as bait to attract HU's army. During 3 months chasing, HU's army was defeated many times by Dehuai PENG's Northwest Field Army but still could not find Mao.

thanks a lot for the information. The Nationalist setup is off a map I found showing positions as of 1946 showing KMT forces and their position in China and Manchuria. Nationalist forces controlling southern Manchuria and CPC forces controlling the northern portion of Manchuria.

the 100,000 troops the CPC sent to Manchuria, this just left the 20,000 men to defend Yen'an or more if you include irregular forces. I plan on adding irregular forces as well for the Communist side. Another question, were the irregular forces brigade or division size formations or smaller.

I know that the KMT had tanks, but I do not know how many, what kind or if they were formed into Brigades or just attached to the infantry Divisions. I haven't attached any to the infantry Divisions, but have given the KMT 2 light tank brigades level 1. The mechanized brigades have given them level 2 tanks. For the CPC forces, I know that they had tanks but I do not know how many or if they were attached to infantry Divisions or formed into Brigades/Regiments. I did read that the CPC received tanks from the Soviet Union and from capturing them during battles with the KMT but were not able to use them until they were trained by KMT deserters....
