As I move forward I'll monitor this addition. But keep in mind, the orbat is correct. The EG border guards consisted of x6 bdes on the WG border, x1 bde around w. Berlin, x1 bde on the Baltic coast, x1 bde on the Polish/Czech border. x3 bns per bde. Each bn is x40 inf sqds, x2 mtrs, some APC's. A speed bump. I wanted to use the Border Icon symbol, but wanted them fixed so as not to allow them to join the invasion.
The militia is also accurate. It was very large, well trained in military tactics, and a political check on the Army. Estimates of 280,000. About half will join the invasion, which should be very interesting, the others are fixed to EG cities (as they should). If used realistically, they would provide rear area security and most probably occupy the larger cities and towns of West Germany.
After Beta, I added a substantial West German Territorial Army. At 1979, it was still a rear area security force, but equally large. So the two opposing militias should help balance each other and help against airborne/SF attacks.
Hellen & Larry, please keep at it. Your posts have allowed me to see how others play this, and helps me make some corrections along the way!
