One thing that ruined me for life is they misspelled reconnaissance, it should have two "n"s not just one according to about five online places I checked to write this article.
I always liked this one because it is a well rounded task force. It has a medium tank to handle enemy tanks, four scout vehicles to perform the actual reconnaissance duties, an armored personnel carrier for troops who can scout dismounted, two light tanks for fast scouting and support, and finally a mortar carrier. The mortar carrier can clear enemy infantry away so the reconnaissance can continue forward, or so they can drop smoke quickly and retreat if they find more than they bargained for!
I decided to do this unit in about 1968 and now in 2023 I am actually working on it. My plan is to make several versions, starting at about 1955 until about 1984, using the M47, M48, and M60 series tanks as the main battle tank. The tank in the photo I believe is an M48 medium tank. I think this because the turret looks round, the tank is larger than that obvious M41 tanks at the bottom, and the gun seems to have a muzzle break. That rules out M60 (no muzzle break), and the M47, which looks like a big M41 light tank. Also the chart is dated 1967 when the M48 was common in US Army service.
So my first version will be:
Platoon commander: 1 x M47 tank
Scout Platoon: 4 x M38 Jeeps
APC: 1 x M59
Tank Platoon: 2 x M41
Mortar Platoon: 1 x M84
It will all be Roco Minitanks except for the M59 which will be Roskopf, and the M84 which will be a conversion of the Roskopf M59 into the mortar carrier. Except I will be using an 81mm mortar rather than the 4.2 inch standardized in the M84. There was a proposal to use the 81mm mortar but it was decided an M59 was large enough that would be a waste to carry such a small mortar in such a large vehicle. I think an 81mm mortar would be perfect in this role since it would deliver a higher volume of fire in a shorter period of time and for a reconnaissance unit that is more important than heavy fire, delivered slowly. I have extra Roco Minitanks 81mm mortars from the Roco M3 halftrack.
I also plan to do two identical reconnaissance units like this one in olive drab. The other one in all white Arctic camouflage as published in TC5-200 Camouflage. Although TC5-200 did not come out until after the M47 was out of service I suspect it simply codified a white paint job already in service or from a previous manual.
Other iterations as they develop.
