My Unofficial Battlegroup: Cold War - East German Paramilitary Battlegroup List

So it's taken a while to get here, and rather than jump on the Polish lists like I thought, instead we've completed an East German Paramilitary Battlegroup list as something a wee bit different.  Once again this  would not have been possible except for the extensive research efforts and help provided by Paul Cziganj (as known as Kirill_GV001 on the Battlegroup forum). 

The primary idea behind this list is to provide opportunities for players who want to run some games set in Berlin to have access to some of the units that would have been at the forefront of the battles - excluding frontline NVA or Soviet troops.

So the list includes units from Wachregiment "Feliks Dzerzhinsky" of the Stasi, the Kampfgruppen der Arbeiterklasse or "Combat Groups of the Working Class" and Grenztruppen (or Border Troops) - all of which had a role in Operation Stoss - the planned capture of West Berlin.

So here is the East German Paramilitary List:

I still have to finalise the East German AFV data.....  

Sadly for the Poles they are getting put off yet again, so the current plan is to deal with the Belgians next.  So we'll see what actually turns up!

Let me know if you have any questions, comments, suggestions etc - here or on the Battlegroup forum.
