Proposed CSSR Units - NOTE: It's extremely hard to find any relevant information about possible CSSR post 1989 shopping spree, so bear with me here. Some proposals are based on what DDR/Poland would be getting and as such are only minimally less probable.
In service within the timeline
Planned to be bought later on
Prototype or not fielded because of reasons
Less Essential Units
Post Cold War Endeavor
Completely Bonkers Proposal that was put in just because
So obsolete that it hurts
T-72M1K - in service with CSLA. 32 known to be still operable as late as 1991. Same as Polish T-72M1D or any other T-72M1 command variant as far as I can tell.
Supply Mi-4/Mi-8/Mi-17 - considering other NSWP got them [supply helo I mean], I don't see why CSSR shouldn't.
TATRAPAN VSRV - Command Truck
No idea. Some "real" Spec Ops, but I don't think there's anything elgible to be called that way among CSLA. Maybe just copy picture of Specialni Jednostky, add a beard and call it "Specialni Jednotka Rychleho Nasazeni", equip it similiar to Polish Komandosi and call it a day ? Idk. Suggestions are welcome.
Záložníci - reservists. Suggestions for their weapons welcome.

Woozle wrote:VZ. 52 Rifle, and VZ. 52 LMG would be a better choice for CSLA Reservist, CSLA never used RPD, and SKS was in service for a year before being thrown out in favor of VZ. 52.
Igla-1 - Poland planned purchase of the license. It could be assumed CSSR planned to get the system itself at the very least. Idk. about DDR.
RPG-29 - for high end AT unit.
T-21 Tarasnice - Infantry RR
Modern Infantry with LADA project weapons (chambered WP 5.45×39mm) :
If wikipedia is to believed, LADA was paused after Velvet Revolution, and not restarted before Velvet Divorce:
So I would cautiously see an 1990/1991 entry date for it, with possible prototype status.

Skupina speciálního určení
Skupina zvláštního určení

Banskobystrický - (??)
Jednotka rychlého nasazení
BRN - Brigáda Rychlého Nasazení
815 8x8 152 mm ShKH Ondava - very advanced upgrade program of the DANA SPG which produced a few prototypes, interrupted and then cancelled due to Velvet Revolution and Divorce. Upgrades include: Longer barrel with 2 part muzzle breaker, new FCS and reloader. Effectively the maximal range has been increased to approx 32km. Experience with the Ondava has been used in later Slovak upgrades of the DANA systems family. Below photos of the Ondawa in the museum, among them one of it majestically rusting next to it's little brother Strop-2.
Additional information: http://www.kotadef.sk/vyskum-a-vyvoj/zb ... ca-ondava/ in czech. According to this the ammo load is reduced to 40.
Tunguska - lack of any data about it being planned at all. Suggesting it cause that's what both DDR and Poland planned to acquire later on.
BUK - same as above.
Both BUK-M1 and TOR were planned to be introduced before 1995
Kub-M4 - also been an option.
Strop-2 - increased availability and perhaps unprototyping ?
Kub-M3 - according to this https://www.isvav.cz/projectDetail.do?r ... ETIA200901 the missile used by Czech Kub's is 3M9M3 variant, which would mean that the system itself is of M3 variety [afaik, someone correct me if I'm wrong]. Since there doesn't seem to be info about Czech Republic acquiring more Kub's since the divorce [nor they would actually have money to do so], it can be reasoned that latest Kub variant in service with the CSLA was the 2K12 KubM3, however there is no exact data about when did this variant entered the service in CSSR.
S300 - [doubtful it gonna be ingame due to it being strategic level asset but still] One battallion created in 1990 and passed on onto Slovakia post Divorce according to the wiki. Can't find more data elsewhere.
2K11 Krug - just cause that one guy can't shut his mouth about it. Old, inaccurate, obsolete, redundant. Not worth the development time given other options.
T-55AM2B with DYNA ERA - information on this is highly limited [to me]. It was apparently shown at IDET 1993. Idk. by whom, if by Slovaks or by Czechs. Only change from original T-55AM2B is addition of DYNAS ERA armor [afaik]. The only pictures I could find are below.
Proposed T-72 Tank Lineup:
T-72S and/or T-72S1 were planned to be acquired [tanks and/or license], but negotiations collapsed along with the communism.
T-72M1 and/or T-72M1M covered with DYNAS ERA armor
T-72M2 Moderna (without autocannons)
T-72M2 Moderna with 1x 30mm 2A42 autocannon
Both tanks feature the same type and variant of the main gun - 2A46, developed by USSR in late 60's."
Though according to the manufacturer, 2A46MS was available since 1994:

I have emailed ZTS - ŠPECIÁL (manufacturers of the 2A46MS) inquiring for information and I have just received an answer:
So while it might not have been part of the Moderna prototype at IDET 1994, it certainly is a viable option to give to some tank with such gun to them, be it Moderna or some other T-72 modification.
Extent of Modifications:

Mi-17 (NATO Hip-H) - was in service in CSLA, 6 pylons, most likely for some unguided rockets.
