Mechanised Division

I’ve eventually settled on the organisation for this now after a couple of re-thinks and am going to leave well alone now!

The 10 Mechanised Divisions are the main strength of the Polish Army, primarily a defensive formation albeit with plenty of Tanks, it consists of: 2 Mechanised Infantry Regiments, 1 Armoured Infantry Regiment and an Armoured Cavalry Regiment and the usual supports. The Polish Regiments have a unique configuration consisting of 6 ‘teeth’ companies plus supporting companies which makes them similar to French Regiments and hence are really small brigades when compared to other forces.

The equipment is a nice mix of older and newer kit with much of it produced in Poland itself. For those not familiar with Fistful of TOW’s each thing listed is a platoon or team and vehicles in brackets after an entry is their transport. E.G. 1 Infantry (Truck) is an Infantry platoon carried in a truck.
