Does anyone have any links to or information on soviet TO&E during the invasion of Afghanistan for soviet VDV units? I am looking mainly for information at the squad to company level. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am completely lost on this right now.

Thanks,
Phil

Try the above link. Possibly too modern by 10 years but I doubt doctrine will have moved that quickly if at all. Check weapons and back-date? Wink
