Re: Soviet Unified Army Corps?

My source is seriously out then, the link I posted gives 4 tanks per company and 12 per battalion, giving 36 and 4 commands for a regiment. Can someone give me a more reliable link please? Best "general" sourcing for bone-standard Soviet ORBAT's in english> http://www.armouredacorn.com/or...

From Jed, figures. Most of Eugen's vehicles came out of there. Just like "PT-71" with ATGM. I'll keep my opinion that this is bull unless proven otherwise.

Re: Soviet Unified Army Corps?
