I'm looking for info regarding Tables of organization and equipment for modern armies. Specifically U.S., U.K., Russia, Israel, Syria and North Korea. Does anyone know if Table Top Games still publishes its Ultra Modern Army Lists books? Any help here is greatly appreciated.

David Isbey wrote two books in the 80's, Weapons and Tactics of the Soviet Army and Armies of NATO's Central Front. These books contain info on most units right down to the infantry section. I have a copy of the Soviet book. For instance a tank platoon is listed as:
"Total Strength: One officer, 11 enlisted (older tanks) 8 enlisted newer tanks for three tank platoon. Some units may have a four tank platoon. Each crewman has an AK MS and five grenades. The Tank commander often carries a pistol."
"Tank Company: Company HQ and 3 Platoons. Company HQ consists of: one tank, commanded by company cdr. Deruty cdr (also political officer), Tech officer, admin officer, one clerk and one driver. They ride in the company's truck(URAL 375 or ZIL 157). The Company Comander may also have a GAZ 69 assigned to him."
This goes on all the way up through division for armor, mech infantry, leg infantry, artillery just about everything you would ever want to know. Check your local library I have a first edition and there is a second edition, but it is not that much different from the 1st. Both books are out of print, Ivbe been loking for the NATO edition for about 10 years now, a friend of mine had a copy in Hawaii. I kept trying to borrow it so I could copy some info. Where I worked we had a high speed copier which could have copied and bound a 500 pg book for me in about 15 minutes. He would not let me take the book apart though, which could be why he would not let me take it out of his sighr ; ). Two other books are from Tom Clancy. Armored Cav gives you the TO & E for the Cav Regiment while Marine will give you the TO & E for them.
I just recieved a used copy of the Nato Armies book, it was originally in the Command and General Staff College at Fort Levenworth. I wonder the reason why it would be so close to the penitentary where most military felons end up : ). Other than a few high lited passages and tons of pencil marks it is in pretty good shape.

Sorry, I should not have written that, but really? Is Stu like four years old?

The posts I see on here like "my armor will beat yours" are infantile.
