I have always been interested in the military organizational structures of the US and Russian Forces. I usually use these organizations when I make my battle groups in SR2020. So far I have created 3 different organization guides. One for the US Military Structures, One for a modern day Russian or Larger world power, and one based off of smaller developing states. Most of the information came from FM 100-60 and FM 100-63 which are based on OPFOR military organizations. Organization of the US military came from many different resources.

While not every single battalion or squadron style unit is modeled in SR2020 I did my best to get close approximations and filled in gaps with what would make sense in SR2020. Some information on Air Force and Naval Organizations were approximations as I was not able to nail down documented examples such as those utilized in the FMs.

There are also some hypothetical style organizations based on technologies down the road.

Love the post.. have an idea this would be a great asset in strategic planning. One Question: Where can a non-military mate find the meaning of all your acronyms. CABDE ? FARP? FBW? I google them and looked up military acronyms... without much luck!

It would help tremendously
thanks..Bill

Sorry for the necro but I didn't think it worth making my own topic. I've also used a similar setup for a longtime, although I have refined it a bit (especially since some units just plain don't work) and gone through several iterations, but my latest is a streamlined version that is a little less micro management to use (but still quite a bit)

I've got pretty much everything down to mixed stacks. They are pretty effective in play when used properly. Not as effective (or as easier to manage) as using stacks of single unit types but adds a bit of entertainment value for me. Note that I mod my own units. I also have missile fabs producing 10 missiles each so the high initiative, long combat time shortrange AA with each BCT are important. Realisticly for US forces I have far too little recon, but they are not useful enough. Same for AT for the most part (sub good ones for tanks in some formations). Initially I used old school triangular divisions (3 BCT), then I tried out square (4 BCT), then I went back to triangular (DSB are what I consider the Corps level assets even though in practice I typically attach them 1 per division and keep them there). US Army is supposedly going to a similar setup (cutting 1 BCT per div, reinforcing the other 3 BCT with 1 extra maneuver element and a full btn of engineers). Purists would use Paladins/Crusaders instead of the Mortars (mortars are typically used at the platoon level) but the high initiative and combat time make them more useful at the front, especially with tech to extend range to 2 hex. They are also conveniently airdroppable and amphib.

For regular army I have 2 basic formations:
The Brigade Combat Team (BCT) and the Division Support Brigade (DSB)

Some examples I use (for US forces - heavy, airborne and stryker or LAV. All use units available at start or researchable/tradeable pretty early on):
HBCT 1 Eng, 2 Mech, 1 Tank, 1 Art, 1 AA, 1 MSB, 1 UH 1 Eng, 2 Bradley, 1 Abrams , 1 M1064A4 MTVL DragonFire, 1 Transportpanzer, 1 Avenger, 1 UHL-60
HDSB 1 Rcn, 1 SPA, 2 MRL, 1 Launcher, 1 LRAA, 1 MSB, 1 AH, 1 CH, 1 OH 1 M-9 Tracer, 1 Crusader, 2 M280, 1 Launcher, 1 Transportpanzer, 1 MIM, 1 AH64, 1 CH47, 1 OH58
ABBCT 1 AB Eng, 3 AB Inf, 1 AB Art, 1 AB AA, 1 AB MSB, 1 AH 1 ECB, 3 AB Elite, 1 M777E1 155mm, 1 BMA-10 Supply, 1 Avenger, 1 AH64
ABDSB 1 Rcn, 1 SPA, 2 MRL, 1 Launcher, 1 LRAA, 1 MSB, 1 AH, 1 CH, 1 OH 1 M/UGV AvantGuard, 1 Crusader, 2 M280, 1 Lance Launcher, 1 MIM, 1 BMA-10
SBCT 1 Eng, 2 Mech, 1 Tank, 1 Art, 1 AA, 1 MSB, 1 UH 1 Stryker Eng, 2 Stryker, 1 Stryker MGS, 1 Stryker Art, 1 Stryker AA, 1 Transportpanzer, 1 UHL-60
SDSB 1 Rcn, 1 SPA, 2 MRL, 1 Launcher, 1 LRAA, 1 MSB, 1 AH, 1 CH, 1 OH 1 Stryker Recon, 1 Stryker Art, 2 M280, 1 Launcher, 1 MIM, 1 Transportpanzer, 1 AH64, 1 CH47, 1 OH58

Next up is the Special Forces Brigade (SFB). I used to use the different units but since they all cost the same I just use the best available to me to represent SOF, Rangers, SEAL teams, etc. It's less headaches. These are your garrison sweepers. I use 6 since I can fit 2 per MH-47E.
SFB 6 SOF 6 Green Beret II
MAC-SOG Enough stealth transports to carry each SFB. Typically 3 MH-47E, although I keep enough MC-130 around to drop at least 1 group.

3 BCT make a division, 4 divisions +4 DSB + 1 SFB make a Corps (the DSB is roughly 1/4 of the units that would make up a Corps), 2 Corps make an army. Army and Theater level units I don't have a standard, I attach what is needed.

Marine Corps
Marine Expeditionary Brigade (MEB) and Expeditionary Strike Group (ESG). 4 MEBs make a Marine Div, 4 MEBS + 4 ESG make a Marine Expeditionary Force (MEF)
MEB 1 Engineer, 3 EFV, 1 Tank, 1 Art, 1 MSB, 1 VTOL FB, 1 AH, 1 CH, 1 Marine SOF + 2 SEALs 1 Lav-E Combat Engineer, 3 EFV, 1 Abrams, 1 M1064A4 MTVL DragonFire, 1 BMA-10 Supply, 1 F-35B, 1 AH-1Z Viper, 1 MH-53 (modded to have capacity of CH-53, which is what it is based on, not the CH-46 which it seems to be in game), 3 GB II
ESG 1 LHD, 1 LPD, 1 LSD, 1 CG, 1 DDG, 1 FFG, 1 SSN 1 LHD-1 Wasp, 1 LPD-17, 1 LSD-49, 1 DDG-1000, 1 CG-73, 1 FFG-7, 1 SSN-773 Cheyenne (note that I have modded the LPD to carry 1 shortdeck, as godawful expensive as it is I think it deserves it...otherwise just use another LHD-1)

Navy
I tend to have 10-12 CSG, and a couple each of the others, total.
CSG 1CVN, 1 CG, 2 DDG, 1 FFG, 2 SSN 1 CVN-79, 1 CG-73, 2 DDG-71, 1 FFG-7, 2 SSN-773 Cheyenne
Typical CVW
CVW 1 ASW, 1 FI, 3 FB, 1 PAT 1 Seahawk, 1 F/A 18J, 3 F-35C , 1/2 Globalhawk

DESRON 2 CG, 3 DDG, 2 FFG 2 CG-73, 3 DDG-71, 2 FFG-7
SUBRON 6 SSN 6 SSN-21 Seawolf
SSGNRON 2 SSN, 4 SSGN 2 SSN-774 Virginia, 4 SSGN-726 Ohio
SSBNRON 2 SSN, 4 SSBN 2 SSN-774 Virginia, 4 SSBN-726 Ohio
SCG 2 Hvy Tran 2 T-AKR-287 Algol (basicly enough to transport 1 Army corps)

Air Wings -
Pretty much identical.
FIW 6 FI 6 F-22D Raptor
FBW 6 FB 6 FB-22 Delta Raptor
PAT 4 Pat 1 E-3B Sentry/2, 1 E-8A JSTAR/2
