Only US or other nations either?
MIM-104A/B - Standard/SOJC
1980-85 USA 6750 M USD 60 battery 3600 missile
1983 Germany 2100 M USD 28 battery 896 missile
1983 Netherland 333 M USD 4 battery 60 missile (was not even a full battalion with 6xFU FU = battery)*
1984 Japan 4000 M USD 24 battery 1000 missile
Was far, far much more Patriot in WG timeframe than S-300V. In fact until late '80s only S-300V1 was finished without ABM capability. But Patriot was not applied as way in WG, in GER were deployed at fixed sites regardles they can be deployed anywhere.
*Mixed PIP HAWK III and Patriot battalion is also possible.
Of course only US (we talking about S-300 to "URSS"),
sorry for long response,
made some small research,
sure what you will not state against that preciseness of comparative equipment count in Wargame is pretty far from real (even not counting things like: TOS-1 which's count even now ~15 (according to your data C-300 count in that time period ~20 or more) (yes i understand what S-300 most possible would stay on country's border defence); Patriots which then should be 4+;..),
according to ~ scaling of Russian armed forces certain vehicles count comparative to US's, in the game could present ~0.4-2.1 S-300, adding 1(max count in desk) to USSR for fairness, with 7000 range(more than Patriot) wouldn't hurt anything, S-300 is even some kind of national symbol, it would be pretty move, liked by Red side players, which wouldn't brake the game
(also what data source you took the data (about patriots) from ? (if not a secret :) ))
