Default "realistic templates"

For the mission designers:
The last couple of weeks I've been digging through field manuals and online resources to find info on "realistic" battalions/groups/platoons/batteries/...
The result is a mission file with more than 30 different battalions, batteries, platoons,....
For the ease of deployment in missions, larger groups are divided in subgroups, so you can deploy a single platoon out of a battalion if you want.
Most groups are just a line-up of all units needed in that group, so exact unit placement is up to you.
Other groups are already placed in a setup like found in the online resources. Same goes for some subgroups. Different variants are available where appropriate.
In infantry platoons, some of them have the soldiers themself in a separate group. Leave out if not needed, duplicate if more are needed.

Obviously, DCS does not have all vehicules available that are needed to make it 1 on 1 realistic.
So, non existing vehicules are replaced by simular units or left out. Used my imagination here.

Also included, is a farp template, what allows you to place a group of vehicles that are outlining a farp structure if zoomed in completly in the editor. Handy to place the farp on a exact spot, or to place units on the farp.
Once done, place the FARP structure itself on the central unit, which is another type for easy recognition.

Download HERE.
In the download are a .miz file what can be used to ad the groups to your own templates, a templates.lua file to simply replace your templates and a pdf with all groups in it.
