Hi All, On a 1 to 1 scale does anyone happen to know the orginization of the israli armored recon company for 1967? I did have one it was in WRG 1950 - 1975 rules but those rules left when I went to the hospital last time long boring story. Also what exterior colr was israli armored force's painted in 1967? Thank for any help anyone can give.

Some discussion at 87th.org.il.
Search on "Israeli armored reconnaissance company organization."
And look for images 73 war.

I didn't see any detailed organization info, but this is a pretty interesting read about the development of reconnaissance units and there is a section on Israeli recon.

I have some old SPI wargame magazines that I inherited. I'll dig through them and see if there is any info on the Israelis.

This isn't specifically 1967, and I have only skimmed it, but this has some great info for Israel in the early 1970's.

I checked my stash of Strategy and Tactics, but the only thing I found was from the 1973 war and it only mentioned recon companies of 20 jeeps. Sorry.

The Israelis are reluctant to discuss or publish much about their organization.

I forgot where I found this but it was handwritten in my wargaming notebook:

Israeli Armored Recon Battalion

Bn HQ
3 Tanks, 4 APCs

Recon Company x 3
HQ
1 Tank, 2 APCs
Tank Platoon x 2
3 Tanks
Mech Infantry Platoon x 2
3 APCs
3 Squads each with
2 MG
1 Mortar
1 Bazooka

Recon Company
HQ
2 Jeeps, 2 Trucks, 2 MGs
Recon Platoon x 4
4 MG Jeeps, 1 Mortar

I believe this was for the 73 war, but I suspect that for 67 you could substitute AMX 13s or jeeps with recoilless rifles for the tanks and halftracks for the APCs and you wouldn't be too far off.
