  1. That would be very easy to upgrade the WW2 Russians to fit this list. Mark's Americans would easily upgrade as well - we just need some jets and helicopters.

  2. 120mm mortars and 122mm howitzers are horse drawn,normal battalion are 3rd world. I don't have the rules with me but I can guess what that means
