HELP NEEDED 2, OOB's REVENGE

Postby [EUG]MadMat » Thu 2 May 2019 17:43

Hi,

I come back to the most learned among you about Bagration's Soviet OOB.

In the solo campaigns, we are trying to designate each battalion (or regiment-size units) by its IRL designation, but some still elude us, especially on the Soviet side. Usually, the smallest level given in Soviet OOBs are division, brigade at best, but rarely batalions, which we have to look for individually.
For the most part, we've succeeded, but a few ones are still missing.

Could some of you, especially with access to Russian-speaking sources, fill the blanks for us?

Those we are looking for presently are (all from 1st Bielorussian Front):

??th Recon Battalion / 9th Gds. Cav. Division / 4th Guards Cavalry Corps
??th Artillery-Mortar Regiment / 9th Gds. Cav. Division / 4th Guards Cavalry Corps
??th Recon Battalion / 10th Gds. Cav. Division / 4th Guards Cavalry Corps
??th Recon Battalion / 10th Gds. Cav. Division / 4th Guards Cavalry Corps
??th Recon Battalion / 30th Cav. Division / 4th Guards Cavalry Corps
??th Recon Battalion / 30th Cav. Division / 4th Guards Cavalry Corps
??th Tank Regiment / 35th Mech. Brig. / 1st Mech. Corps
??th Tank Regiment / 37th Mech. Brig. / 1st Mech. Corps
??th Tank Regiment / 19th Mech. Brig. / 1st Mech. Corps
??th Sap. Battalion / 1st Gds. Tank Corps

The 10th Guards Cavalry Division was formed in 1942 with the following units. The 10th Guards Recon Squadron might be the recon battalion you're looking for. In US and Russian cavalry organizations, as I'm sure you know, squadrons were battalion-sized elements.

The new numbering of parts of the division was assigned on November 22, 1942:

36th Guards. cavalry regiment
40th Guards. cavalry regiment
42th Guards. cavalry regiment
The 128th Tank Regiment (from 09/06/1943 to 10/17/1943, from 02/27/1944)
183rd Guards. artillery-mortar regiment (149th guards. artillery-mortar regiment, 12th guards. equestrian artillery division)
45th Guards. Dep. Air Defense Division (56 ambush, 65 Guards. Zenbatr)
12th Guards. artillery park
10th Guards. reconnaissance squadron (10th Guards reconnaissance division)
8th Guards. sapper squadron
10th Dep. Guards communications squadron (91st dep. half-squadron communications)
reserve squadron (until 11/28/1942)
12th Medical Squadron
11th Guy. Dep. chemical protection squadron
8th food transport
8th fuel supply platoon
9th Divisional Veterinary Infirmary
1582th Field Mail Station
945th field ticket office of Gosbank

The 30th Cavalry Division had the following units:

The composition of the division:

127th Cavalry Regiment
133rd Cavalry Regiment
138th Cavalry Regiment
tank regiment (from 08/05/1943)
134th Tank Regiment (from 08/25/1943 to 10/02/1943, from 02/28/1944)

I'm guessing none of this was useful?
