Simplifying the Red god of War

 Chris Kemp
Reading through some of the bewildering changes in the Soviet orders of battle in Zaloga and Ness (1998) leads me to the conclusion that simplification is needed when reducing everything to a 1:30 NQM scale. After all, MiniHitler and SmallStalin only have 15mm forces with which to wage their wars.
Part of me wants to faithfully reflect the historical campaign, but another part recognises that there are limits to what can be achieved. I think I really lost the plot when looking at RVKG (Stavka artillery reserve) artillery orders of battle, but the resultant simplifications have been added to the NQM Soviet Artillery page:
