Battalion Battle Group Lists - The European Front - NATO Part 1 1986 to 1990


Here at Manoeuvre Group we have been working on a new concept, Battalion Battle Group lists.    This is our second set Battalion Battle Groups NATO Part 1 - 1986 to 1990.    Progress on the full divisional lists is, by definition, slow.   On this basis, and due to feedback from our players, that not everybody wants to design their own task forces from scratch, starting with the division, we have produced smaller lists.  These new smaller lists go up to battalion battle group level. Occasionally, where necessary, we have attached out higher level units for you, so that it is much easier and quicker to build a force for an evening game; be it battalion, company group or a platoon skirmish.   This second set is Part 1. (I know, it's Part 1, but Paul improved the format in Part 2 so we launched with Part 2  re-formatting Part 1 to match it!).  With this set all the major protagonists are covered for the European Front 1986 to 1990.  This set covers British Armoured, Canadian Mechanized ,  German Panzer and Panzer Grenadier,  Italian Armoured, and United States Heavy brigades along with French Armoured and Motor Rifle regiments. 


In order to make the lists quicker to use, we have also added a few bits of the rules in the text.  Mainly we have done more to define the artillery allocations, but left the real information so you can still use the data for your own rules if you want.   As always, these lists can be used for any wargame set, not just Manoeuvre Group, as they are real lists.   For Manoeuvre Group players, full vehicle and weapon specifications are included.  For non-Manoeuvre Group players, the vehicle specifications are defined in such a way that the armour values can converted back to basic values for use other rules.

We have published a free, updated Quick Reference Sheet on the site.  It's only taken four years to find a couple of missing items!

Use addition for researching orders of battle. I got it for researching the Canadian 4th Mechabnized Brigade. All of our game group, Samos' Swordsmen 472nd RCT found it useful. Always looking to hear from former Swordsmen! Survive and Suceed! [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
