Hi,

I'm designing some lists for playing India vs Pakistan games in 65 and 71 using the Fate of a Nation system from Battlefront.

I've found plenty of details about organisation and eqipment but I'm struggling with what levels to put troop training and morale at.

Does anyone have any details about how well trained the basic troops were and what morale was like for ethier nation?
Thanks

I had found some one's unofficial list for Team Yankee online. It listed the Indians as Courage 4+, Skills, Morale and Assault 5+, Remount 3+ and Counterattack 4+. The Pakistani's were listed as the same except for Remount 4+.

From my limited information (Osprey M48 Patton v Centurion: David R Higgins), I would say the Pakistanis were on the whole more aggressive, and the Indians more cautious, though possibly more steady.
I think training is more even.

Thanks, I've just been reading that Patton vs Centurion Osprey and I think it seems to imply that Pakistan had worse training. There tank school didn't even have an obstacle course

Do you have a link to that TY list jerkinder6? I was thinking of doing a TY list for India vs Pakistan as well

I believe I found it on the Team Yankee Facebook page.
