Hello,

 I am doing online research for a Cold-War based wargaming project and I need to find out the following:

 

  Is there good online sources for Platoon level organizations for NATO and Warsaw Pact armies for the years ca. 1980-84?

 

  Any help you can give would be most appreciated!

Briganza,

 Appreciate the help, but I need something for a set of miniatures rules (should have specified that) and basically, I am looking for either original source material online, or at the very least stuff that's based on research of said same?

Have you tried the cold wargamer blog? FAS also has examples of the US Army's FM100-2 Manuals on the Soviet Army.
