Does anyone know what the equipment type and ratios are in H&R's 50-figure packs? Specifically I want to compare the Germans to the 1980's West Germans and Warsaw Pact Soviets to Motor Rifles.

I'm planning on building a ~1990-era force for both nations, and I'm trying to figure out the best infantry for them. Suggestions from other suppliers in 6mm are welcome: I only know about GHQ as an alternative.

The GHQ packs are post 2000 infantry/heavy weapons.
What do you want to know about the West German infantry and heavy Weapons ? Do you want a comparison between the old packs M08/M09 and the new packs M32/M33 ? Likewise for the Russians M03/M04/M17 (the old packs) and the new packs M28/M29 ? The main difference is the old packs were modelled in the 1980's the new packs in the last couple of years.
The modern heavy weapons packs are a random selection of the new heavy weapons + Command strips, NCO strips and LMG strips.
There is also Mainforce figures sold by Magister Militum these are mainly prone figures.
