FYI, the "Ir" and "US" notations indicate the primary weapon types of the infantry platoons.

What always amazed me is, how they managed to keep the US imported F-4's flying without spares after the embargo...

True... but still... they must have managed it better than the 'Galactica' cannibalising the old Viper models :D

Ummm i imagine that "Ir" refers to the prewar iranian army equipment (G3 assault rifles enter in this category) later maybe we can see "CN" designation for chinese equipment even "SV" for soviet... i know very little about Iran-Irak war but the armament supply is like Game of Thrones but with more cliff angers and jetpack moments (i refer to the TV show )

I see strange the lack of a mech infantry brigade in iranian armored divisions but well, they use the west "king size" tank battalions and maybe they have bigger mech infantry battalion in the armored brigades and is not like they have a lot of material even in early part of war to mantein a generous mech infantry support.

I remember read to about how good was Irak to keep working their high tech equipment even with no support, looks like arab countries apart of be specialist in burn good material with a bad use from semiprofesional armies they can use when they dont have supplies a good amount of inventiveness... but not allways they hit the target

I think Quasimodo finds his armored couterpart
https://www.militaryfactory.com/armor/detail.asp?armor_id=902

With this i am divided in 2... increase armor good, do it with reactive armor in a thin armored vehicle... i prefer dont be inside or outside

There are “Cz” (Czech arms, from the 40’ through 60’s, although some infantry units were still armed with them at the time of the war, “US”. ( US arms started arriving in the 50’s, “Ir” ( locally produced under licence arms of various origin) and “Co” for the usual Communist weapons

The 80’s orbats are based on Micro mark lists

As I think Before 1950-1960 there is not major interest about oob! most of division was purely infantry with one regiment of artillery and some support armored car and light tank versions.

Most important period was 1970s which in that duration major reformation of equipment happened.new air force fighters new naval equipment and base on CS-ME ground force structure changed.

Unfortunately there is no certain information about composition of Iranian army before eve of war with Iraq clear. we shall consider general formation base on available data.

Jason Petho order sample order of battle is correct but it need some minor adjustment such as armored cavalry organization! BMP-1 was newly imported at that time from soviet about 150 Pcs but some used after start of war to organized mechanized infantry battalion and some used to refitted armored cavalry battalions which was heavily damaged during first week of war to slow the advance of Iraqi invasion , good sample was 283rd Armored cavalry battalion ( it consist 21 x scorpion tanks , 6 M113 Tow and 9 120mm M113 mortar carrier which changed later its armored carrier to BMP-1.before that and as normal oob it used BTR-60 as its troop carrier.

Look at below oob for on armored cavalry company of Iranian army, its is near to their general table of equipment such as us army in 1977:

Iranian tanks Cobra AH-1J and anti tanks weapons was mostly from western source but the carriers , transports and most bridge equipment was from soviet.

I recently played a megagame on the Iran Iraqui war and started as iraqus chief of staff but was sacked though my 2 succrssors were both shot
We lost hormuz early but counterattacked and by peace time we has Abadan khorramshah and had wrecked Ahwaz to screw the Iranian economy
We also recognised israels right to exist and got cluster bombs from the yanks which were tres useful against human wave assaults

Interest or not, our standards are to ensure the organizations are built throughout the time frame of our games, so if someone wants to create hypothetical battles in the various decades, they can do that.

I will also be covering some of the fighting against the Kurds in the 40's through 70's.

This a typical Tank Battalion oob in armored brigade in 1979-1980 type of the tank can be replaced by M60-A1 but generally 2/3 of battalions equipped with chieftain and remain with M60-A1.

There was one tank battalion in infantry division which mostly used M-47 or M-48 Patton.

Thanks,

I have two main sources, firstly ST 17-1-1 circa 1977 of US army which Iranian army in 1970 was constructed base on that but with some variations and several type of other equipment. The second source is some military history books of Iranian army which published after 8 years war and you can find good view of oob, description of battles and other topics ( not English translated ).

About the graphics I mostly use ship-bucket drawings with some modification.

In next steps I will go to mechanized infantry Battalion.

Good day!

I'm just looking at the Armoured Cavalry Squadron for the Iranians in Post 38.

You're showing that each platoon had three squads of infantry. A quick comparison between the two

The US Model shows:

An HQ with an APC and 2 men
A rifle squad in an APC with 11 men
A scout section consissting of 4 APC's with 3 men each
A light Armour section of 3 tanks with 4 men each
the mortar squad in APC with 5 men

Your Iranian platoon shows
an HQ with an APC and 5 men
three rifle squads with 3 APCs and 11 men each
a light armour sections of 2 Scorpions with 3 men each
the mortar squad in APC with 5 men
M875 RR with three men

The organization looks awesome, but I am questioning the three rifle squads. That seems quite heavy compared to the US model.

Any ideas?

Because lack of APC and tanks, quantity of APC scout vehicles reduced.battalion Rule of scouting changed to rule of fast screen formation to absorb first wave of armored attach with aid of gunship cobra AH-1J and Airforce. As there is no shortage of infantry, all APC used as troop carrier with full rifle team capacity.

As I mentioned before, each battalion standard OOB consist 21 scorpion light tank , 6 Tow M113 and 9xM113 mortar carrier .

If you look at Mechanized infantry battalion of US army 1977 you will find another sample for difference. US Mechanized infantry battalion had 18 Tow-M113 but Iranian table of organization for mechanized infantry battalion only consisted 6 Tow-M113 vehicles, about 33 APC and other reduced equipment but foundation of organization is US army 1970 standard.

However at this time with shortage of detailed documents of real order of battle the nearest reference is ST 17-1-1 circa 1977 with some balancing from published war report as Iranian Army published books.

Next part is 1980 infantry battalion of Iranian regular army which consist of three infantry company, one combat support company as below sketches( in later stages of the war the fourth infantry company also added to OOB ).

There were also battalion HQ company which include support,transport, medical and maintenance platoons which have not effected to game, but i will try to put it if found some exact information.
