Its easy to find sources citing when various bits of NATO equipment came into service and with which unit but very little on the WP side of equipment changes, well I found an interesting thread buried deep within over at tank.net forums where someone took the time to go through various Military Liaison Mission reports (US/UK and French) detailing when kit was first seen and with which WP unit that was in East Germany at the time.

I've reformatted it and removed non fighting equipment (radars and such like) leaving a estimate of which unit had what vehicles and in which year

I think it will be of great help to scenario designers looking to create as accurate as possible scenarios

Some interesting points -

1. the northern armies of soviet forces in Germany received the T64 first, while the 2 southern armies facing the US V corp were still on T62 tanks until 1983/1984 when they received the T80 (seems they skipped the T64 almost entirely)
2. The missile firing T-64B were deployed on the basis of one company per tank battalion in units equipped with T64
3. Manoeuvre regiments have retained their D30 subsequent to the arrival of 2S1
4. Regiment and divisional artillery was battery strength until the early 80's

If anyone knows of any other sources please let me know, I'm very interested in building up a year by year TOE for soviet forces.

The Soviet Readiness System

Interesting page about soviet readiness formations and at the bottom a list of all divisions at each readiness state in various districts

Tazak, I would be interested in the raw document with the radars and other toys.

Thanks.
