While cleaning up an old desk I found some hand written notes on the average Battle Group. These are at least 5 years old, probably older, but looks like I was calculating basic point value for a mid sized force. The idea to find a base line for custom force compositions.

Reference: DSII rulebook, page 7
Unit is typically 4 vehicles

1 unit heavy battle tanks (4) = 960 points
2 units medium / light tanks = 660 pts medium, 504 light pts
3 units APC w/ 2 fire teams per track = 630 pts
1 unit artillery = 1245 pts
1 command element w/ support = 1623 pts

Total Average Battle Group = ~5500 points

Command element consists of the following: 1 command vehicle, 1 area defense vehicle, 1 engineering vehicle, 3 missile vehicles as a unit. The command unit may or may not function as a contiguous unit. The vehicles or units may be attached to another unit, in which case the lower morale level is assumed. If functioning independently an individual morale market is selected. Whatever the organization the case organization should be determined before morale markers are drawn.

My next step is to publish the data cards from my Excel Workbook, see the file section shortly.
