East German Mot-Schützen Platoon (TEG702)

East German Mot-Schützen Platoon (TEG702) East German Mot-Schützen Platoon (TEG702)
includes four MPi KM Assault Rifle teams with RPG-18, four RPG-7 Anti-tank teams, four Medium four-hole bases, four Small two-hole bases and three Unit cards. 

The Russian BMP-1 is the successor to Germany's ground-breaking Hanomag halftrack of the Second World War. It carries the Schützen into battle in relative safety, then gives them fire support as they launch their attack.

The East German Volksarmee, or Peoples’ Army, has the reputation of being the most well-trained of all the Warsaw Pact armies. It has a high proportion of professional soldiers and is well-equipped. 9. Panzerdivision, or 9th Tank Division, in particular, is equipped with T-72M tanks and BMP-1 and BMP-2 infantry fighting vehicles.

Mounting an AT-3 Sagger missile, the BMP-1 also protects the infantry from enemy panzers.

The company’s riflemen are armed with the classic AKM assault rifle, or MPi KM (Maschinenpistole Kalashnikow Modernisiert) submachine-gun as the East Germans called them. Each squad is also equipped with an RPK squad automatic weapon, disposable RPG-18 anti-tank rockets, and the powerful RPG-7 anti-tank rocket launcher.
The company is backed up by a platoon of six belt-fed PKM machine-guns, as well as AGS-17 30mm grenade launchers, all mounted in BMPs.

With the threat of war looming the companies have had their old Strela-2 anti-aircraft missiles replaced with newer Strela-3 (Arrow-3) aircraft missiles (known as SA-14 Gremlin in the West). These are deployed in a squad, mounted in another BMP, attached from the battalion’s air defence platoon.
