  1. I open this thread to drop any information regarding the Greek order of battle in 1989 for Pat Callahan's project "NATO Order of Battle" which can be found in this site http://www.microarmormayhem.com. He has asked for more info on lesser known armies like the Greek. I can provide some information on the Greek army. There is a lot of info out there but also a lot of info is missing. Unfortunately I don't believe I will ever be able to draw a complete OOB, but the current version can be improved considerably. I'll start with ASDEN (High Military Command of Interior and Islands). It is important to know that the Aegean islands except Limnos are officialy demilitarised according to certain treaties. As such the Greek army used (uses?) codified terms to refer to its units there. The island garrisons are refered to as Higher National Guard Battalions Commands (ΑΔΤΕ), whereas Limnos garisson is simply a Military Command (ΣΔΙ). In fact, although there is a number of national guard battalions (others translate them as "home guard"), most are regular army units. The same happens with untis which are always refered to as National Guard untis. For instance an artillery regiment will be called ΔΜΕΘ ("National Guard Units Command") and its arty battalions will use names like TE (national guard battalion) or ΜΕΘ (national guard unit). As far as I understand, ΜΕΘ is always an antiaircraft artillery battalion, so there is a system in the terminology. I have tried to generally ignore the codified names and use the proper terms. So instead of writing a "national guard unit" I write "light AA artillery battalion" which is the proper term (the Greek is ΜΕΑ/ΑΠ). So to begin: (1989 Greek OOB) High Mil Cnd Of Interior And Islands (ASDEN) – Athens HQ Company –Athens 482 Signals Battalion –Athens 736 Military Works Directorate –Athens 471 Electronic Warfare Battalion –Athens 291 Infantry Battalion –Syros (island) Ermoupoli National Guard Battalion –Syros (island) 2 Army Aviation Battalion –Megara: 9 Chinook CH-47C 2 Parachute Regiment –Aspropyrgos Command Company –Aspropyrgos 1 Parachute Battalion –Maleme, Crete (island) 2 Parachute Battalion –Aspropyrgos 79 Military Command – Samos (island) 80 Military Command – Kos (island) 95 Military Command – Rhodos (island) 96 Military Command - Khios (island) 98 Military Command – Lesbos (island) V Infantry Division -Chania, Crete (island)
  2. Here we go: https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-61408700 The UK has agreed mutual security pacts with Sweden and Finland, agreeing to come to their aid should either nation come under attack. UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson visited both countries to sign the deals, amid debate about them joining Nato. The pacts also state that Finland and Sweden would assist the UK in a crisis. Mr Johnson and Swedish PM Magdalena Andersson said co-operation was "even more important" given Russia's invasion of Ukraine. The second deal was announced in a joint press conference with Finnish President Sauli Niinistö. Mr Johnson said the "solemn declaration" between the UK and Finland was reflective of the "extreme difficulty of the times we are in". He emphasised the deal was "not a short-term stop gap" while Finland considered whether to join the Nato defensive alliance, but rather a "enduring assurance between two nations". Asked if there would be "British boots on the ground" in Finland should a conflict break out, Mr Johnson said military assistance would be offered, but that the "nature of that assistance" would depend upon the "request of the other party". Mr Johnson added the agreement would become the "foundation of an intensification of our security and our defence relationship in other ways as well". Mr Niinistö said his nation appreciated the UK's "strong support" of Nato's open-door policy to Finland's potential membership. He said joining Nato would not be "against anybody" and the UK deal was intended to "maximise our security one way or another" while considering joining the defensive alliance. However, when asked if the possible move could provoke President Vladimir Putin, Mr Niinistö said Russia would be responsible if Sweden or Finland joined Nato. He said Russia was suggesting the two nations did not have their "own will" by threatening them against applying for membership "They are ready to attack their neighbouring country, so... my response would be that 'you caused this - look at the mirror'".
  3. Inverted, jacketed, telescopic APFSDS not only has a higher penetration than regular APFSDS but it also has a higher angle performance than regular APFSDS. Would this make NATO frontal hull designs obsolete as the required amount of raw thickness would be too high for (most) tanks reasonably achieve?
