Soviet OOBs

Post by Art » 08 Oct 2007 13:45

Anticipating possible questions in the future, I want to recommend the following site with Soviet OOBs:
http://tashv.nm.ru/
See the third link from the top.
The OOBs are taken from the handbook "The combat composition of the Sovet Army in 1941-45" and for the most part show the battle order of the RKKA for the first date of each month between 1st July 1941 and 1st May 1945. Also the OOBs of the forces on the Far East after May 1945 are included. All the OOBs are in Russian. For explanation of the abbreviations see the list compiled by our forum's member AMVAS:
http://www.rkkaww2.armchairgeneral.com/ ... B_abbr.doc
Also the following list is available in Russian:

If somebody can do this he'll be awarded a Hero of the Soviet Union... :D
I did my best to translate almost every typical abbreviation, which can be met there

Alex,

Michael and I are in the process. Will need some help on the hand-writing part and the missing pages (and No. 10). Already found some units missed in the Rifle Divisions (mainly the SU Battalions).

You can give Michael the HSU (or shouldn't it be now the HRF?) :)

I'll take the Order of Zhukov.

Figure out what Soviet front acted there, then amry (armies) and then it's easy to decompose armies by corps and division levels using BSSA book

Re: Soviet OOB 1940?

Post by 5th Horseman » 03 Aug 2009 02:59

I am preparing a scenario for a wargame, based on a theoretical Soviet attack on Germany in 1940 in response to the German attack in the west.
I have been searching for a while and would appreciate any help in the Soviet Order of Battle for the invasion of the Baltic countries and the Fronts facing Poland and Rumania.
Essentially all I need is Front/Army/Corps/Division. So nothing really that detailed.
Again, any help would be appreciated.
Thanks, 5th,
