Equipment of the Warsaw Pact.
INFANTRY DIV (MECHANIZED) (1ST) FORT RILEY KS
Pagination or Media Count:
Beginning in the late 60s and continuing into the present, the Soviets conducted a dramatic increase in the mechanization of their ground combat forces. With the introduction of a wide variety of new self-propelled weapons systems, they managed to increase significantly the tactical mobility, firepower, and survivability of those forces on both the nuclear and chemically contaminated battlefield. This booklet, through photographs and brief discriptions, is designed to provide the reader with an appreciation of the capabilities of the equipment employed by three of the major members of the Warsaw Pact, the USSR, East Germany, and Czechoslovakia. It is an unclassified document based on information from open sources.
