Thank you kindly, Mario, but I can't claim too much credit at all. This was simply a matter of taking Bernard's British Army orbat (in turn derived in part from the great work of Louie) and combining it with the TOE post that James1978 contributed, then dressing it up with a little formatting and underlining.

I know people have their different preferences for formats when it comes to orbats, but this one does allow a quick tallying up of equipment holdings (at least in active service) and looking at it from a slightly different angle to the original.

I share your preference for this kind of format and, once acknowledged work by other, I think there's nothing wrong in getting credit for your contribution 🙂

I'd like to do something like this for James1987's Italian Army OrBat, but right now I already have enough TLW commitments 🙃

The Russia-Ukraine War is given the Last War a lot of stuff it can use.

Am I wrong in thinking that there's at least three backfires there that are no longer backfires?

Having read a bit more by now than just his wikipedia page, what, if anything, would Billy Waugh be up to in this universe? I mean, he is only 75 by the time WW3 kicks off, practically still a spring chicken, and he might as well coordinate some shady Agency business in some warm-climed corner of the world :mrgreen:

Louie, you mentioned back in October 2023 that you had figures for RAF and RN ammunition stocks? Would it please be possible at all to share those?

It would provide an interesting logistical side to the progress of the war at this point and illustrate some drivers for different types of operations.
