ZSU-23-4

See Helicopter and Air support Rules TBD
SA-9

See Helicopter and Air support Rules TBD
BRDM or BMP-R

See Recon Rules

All  bases are 1.5” square, except those designated as small, which represent roughly platoon sized attachments and are on 1” squares

Motorized Rifle Regiment (BMP)
HQ
• 3 x Motor Rifle Battalions (BMP)
3 x Motor Rifle Companies (BMP)
• 1 x Tank Battalion (MRR)
3 x Tank Companies
• Regimental Artillery Group
3 x 122mm SP Batteries [Small Base]
1 x Forward Observer [Small Base]
• Air Defense Company
1 x ZSU-23-4 [Small Base]
1 x SA-9 [Small Base]
• Recon Company
1 x BMP-R [Small Base]
1 x BRDM [ Small Base]
• Anti-Tank Company
1 x BDRM-3 (AT-5) Company

My design assumption is that the battalion commanders have parceled out battalion level heavy weapons and that is baked into the unit stats.

Now for the Americans...

Sample TOE, US Army, ~1985
Stats

M2 Infantry
Move 12” or
6” and dismount
Fire vs. Infantry: 6” 2K/1S, 12” 1S
Fire vs All AFV: 12” 1K/1S  (Stationary Only)
Fire versus Light AFV: +1S

M163 Vulcan
Move 12”
See Helicopter and Air support Rules TBD
Stinger Team
Move 12”
See Helicopter and Air support Rules TBD
M3 CFV

See Recon Rules

All company bases are 1.5” square, except those designated as small, which represent roughly platoon sized attachments and are on 1” squares
Brigade, Armored or Mechanized Infantry Division
HQ
• 1 or 2 Armor Battalions
4 x Armor Companies (M1)
1 x M3 CFV Scout Platoon [Small Base]
• 1 or 2 Mechanized Infantry Battalions
4 x Infantry Companies (M113) or (M2)
1 x Anti-Tank Company (M901)
1 x M3 CFV Scout Platoon [Small Base]
• Attached Air Defense Assets
1-2 x M163 Vulcan [Small Base]
1-3 x Stinger Teams [Small Base]
Brigade will typically have at least 1 battalion (155mm) from divisional artillery in direct support.  It is assumed that fire support teams are distributed across the Brigade and US Company and Platoon leaders are prepared to call and observe fires as well, therefore all artillery support will be off table and any company may call for fire.
Battalion heave weapons, mortars, etc. are assumed to be distributed to maneuver companies.  The only exception is the Anti-Tank company, which is kept together to better model the amount of anti-tank firepower across the battalion.
