Greetings, I am looking for pictures/photos of NATO countries forces, soldiers, tanks, aircrafts, joint excercise, etc during Cold War. All Cold War era NATO countries including US and most specifically the US Forces Europe.

I know there's one thread about Warsaw Pact so I thought another for NATO. Some peple might tell me to use search function or search in Google but believe me I can't really find anything apart from two West Germany threads in this forum. The others are mostly post cold-war pictures, or pre-WW2.

Thanks

Could be an interesting thread. I would love to see pics of the huge annual "Reforger" exercices conducted by NATO during the 80s.

Hell yeah, I'd like to see a photo of miles of railroad cars carrying M-60s and M-113s to the exercise.

Check his profile he’s a self admitted nintendosniper wannabee with ADD. I guess he missed the part where I said the pictures were almost 30 years old. Hey the FNC1 did sterling service. I carried it (or the C2) from 1977 to 1989.

BTW I went back and editted some of the pics adding captions from my mess tin addled memory.

I'll try and hunt up some more later this week that haven't been scanned yet.

Need more infos on these please, does the 14,500 flown to Europe meant that many soldiers from continental US flown to Europe silmutaneously within hours or is there other explanation? Because I'm sure (in event of war) the many zillions millions Red Army and Warsaw Pact folks won't wait patiently until all of their enemies have been mobilized with reinforcements came and stood next to them!

It's hard to tell in the photograph, but they probably have rubber pads on the tracks to prevent too much damage to the local roads.

&BTW, excellent thread, kudos to the Cold Warriors who stood along the Iron Curtain and defied the Reds, bascially giving them the finger for fifty years.

Great thread, I remember when I was a kid my brother showing me pics of his squadrons jaguars using an autobahn(I think) as a runway back in the 80's, I'll ask him if there scanned.

There are rubber tracks on the AFV's as already stated and the autobahn itself was/is pretty strong , moreso than equivelent roadways in North America.

The whole system was designed and constructed in the 1930's partially as a make work project to help out with the Depression( similar to those make work projects in the US) but also to improve the mobility of the German military. BEing in the centre of Europe means you need to be prepared to fight a two front war right. That meanss being able to shift troops and vehicles from East to West rapidly.

The Germans/Prussians used a similar technique in the 19th century with the development of an excellent railway system that was used to in both the Franco Prussian and First World Wars

The above quote, is very pro-Greek. History always more than one side and seeing as this conflict is going on. Both sides wanting to take Cyprus as its own. ( and don't tell me Greece is any different), when it finally ends then history can be written.

question, I see a few pics of the early M1 tank, when did it actually enter service with the US army ?
According to Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M1_Abrams):

The M1 Abrams replaced the M60 Patton in US service, as well as the M48A5. It did, however, serve alongside the M60A3, which had entered service just two years before (1978) the M1, for over a decade...
.
.
.
...The Abrams, by contrast, can destroy certain enemy tanks by firing, on the move, a single round from 2,000 meters away. As the Abrams entered service in the 1980s, they would operate alongside M60A3 within the United States military, and with other NATO tanks in numerous Cold War exercises.
It entered service around 1980-1981.

Need more infos on these please, does the 14,500 flown to Europe meant that many soldiers from continental US flown to Europe silmutaneously within hours or is there other explanation? Because I'm sure (in event of war) the many zillions millions Red Army and Warsaw Pact folks won't wait patiently until all of their enemies have been mobilized with reinforcements came and stood next to them!
2nd Arm Div was transport from Texas to southern Germany in 2 days in this excercise
at the same time, the soviets doctrine required them to advance to Rhine in 2 months. and soviet armed force do not have too much experience in tactical nuclear warfare, they do not have enough equipment have NBC protection at that time. And Soviets could not deter the "devil capitalism" to escalate the nuclear war because they do not have enough strategic nuclear weapon in early 60's

I have a question. From 1979 to the end of 1984, the production of Leopard II is about 800+, and about 300 Leopard II sold to Netherlands Army in 1983 , and assigned to Netherlands 4 Inf Divison (please correct me if I made a mistake)
So, how did German assign the rest of Leopard ii? Did the Panzer Battalions in the 3 panzer divisions stationed in the rear area ( 5, 7 , 10 PzD ) got the higher priority to arm these new tanks? or those Panzer Battalions stationed in front area change their Leopard I to II first?

As a young U.S. Marine infantryman, I participated in the NATO excersise "Operation Love Song" in the North Atlantic in June and July of 1970. Does anyone have any pics?? We attempted an amphibious landing in Denmark, but our amphibious tractors couldn't navigate in 20ft swells. We went back onboard the U.S.S. Plymouth Rock ( LSD-29) and took British Westland Wessex helicopters to Denmark. We worked with British and Dutch Royal Marines and the Danish Army. It was a lot of fun for a seventeen year old kid like me!! Best to all, Bill Stephens.

6 Morre TA Brigs had only 1 Tank Btl, 2 Jaeger Btl truck mounted and 1 Art Btl with towed 105mm.
The Jaeger Btl with the M113 APCs had 7 of either Leopard 1A5 or KanonenJagdPanzer in the Heavy Coy. The truck mounted Jaeger Btls had mostly M48A2GEA2.
Although seriously outdated by early 90's standarts, the Job of these TA Brigades was to keep the Rear secure of either Air Assaults or being an immediate stopgap in case of a breakthrough.
In addition to these TA Brigs, the TA also had 6 Jaeger Regiments with 4 Jaeger Btl (truck) each and about 150 independant Jaeger Coys for point defense.

There's something so ominous about the early Leopard 2s (pre-A5). They look like brawlers. The A5 and A6 look more like sports cars than combat tanks.

I know what you mean. I vividly remember taking that close-up picture of the Leo II driving by. My tank was sitting right off that road and the German tankers were staring at me as if to say "Don't even THINK about messing with us". If you look close I think even the driver was staring me down.

Great pictures! SpeedyHedgehog, based on your posts I assume you were assigned to area close to Czechslovakia, do you have photos close to the Czechoslovak border? There were lots of pictures of American soldiers met face-to-face with East German border guards but rarely with the Czech.

I was stationed in Bamberg, Germany. Our GDP (General Defense Plan, or wartime) positions were on the Czech border. We went there often in jeeps to recon those positions but I have virtually no photos of those trips. This is the only photo I know was near the border, but I have no idea where.

I volunteered to be SGT Diemer's loader (he was a relatively new tank commander and one of the best soldiers I ever met-probably the only time he had a First Lieutenant for a loader). This shot was taken from the loader's hatch looking across the TC's hatch.

I think that date must be wrong. The last time I ever saw a M60A2 was around 1979 at Hohenfels, before I ever got into armor. I NEVER saw one after becoming an Armor officer in 1983, except at the Patton Museum at Ft. Knox.

Yeah, the fate of most Sheridans was to be used as Opfor surrogate vehicles. I think they only finally did away with them in the last couple of years - JRTC at Fort Polk and NTC at Fort Irwin were the last to use them. IIRC they've all been replaced by M113-series opfor vehicles. Even the tanks.

Dissapointed by the meagre UK showing sofar in this thread.

Especially missing one cold war fighter everyone must remember

The venerable lighting. A true classic. Some impressive stats including an initial climb rate better than many much later fighters.
A site from a pilot who flew both the Lightning and the F15 and the EEL stakcs up pretty damned well all things considered

My platoon sergeant and his wingman got their tanks stuck-you'll notice the roadwheels are almost covered.
http://i533.photobucket.com/albums/ee337/SpeedyHedgehog/boggeddotjpg


I was in Bravo and CSC 3/35 Armor from 1978 to 1980. I ended up running the AVLB section. The serial numbers on the AVLBs were 9 and 59. They were in M-60 chassis and didn't even have the newer RISE package engines.

There were so many differences between the two vechicles that they weren't compatibale! Serial number 9 didn't even have the quick disconnects to allow another tank to raise it's bridge in the event of a Hydraulic Pump failure....and guess which one always blew it's pump? Thats right! Old Number 9.

Number 9 was such a disaster that when the AGI came up I painted it like it was just issued...Forrest Green paint and nice neat black stencils so the inspection team would think it was a new tank and not inspect it. Damned if it didn't work! The team took one look at 9 and went straight for 59. :)

I was also the guy who started the fashion of putting the small reflective US flags on our tanks (they came from Re-Up bumper stickers) and re-started the Fashion of naming the tanks in 35.

There was some directive/unwritten rule I had never heard of stating that we couldn't put names and nose art on our tanks. I had decided to Name my tanks Lazarus (9) and Leviathan (59) and painted appropriate small art work on the sides of the bridge tongue.

All hell broke lose when the first sergeant saw it. He ordered me to paint it over. I hummed and hawed and said I would get to it later as it was quiting time. I put if off for a few days then the CO chewed me out about it. I said I would get to it first thing in the morning.

As luck would have it the Battalion Commander was in the motor pool bright and early that next day, saw it and liked it. He ordered everyone to put a name on their tank's gun tubes the next day. Some of the more artistically inclined even painted nose art on their spotlight covers.

As you can tell it won me no points with my CO and First Sergeant. I wasn't the first time they were pisssed at me and it wouldn't be the last.

Those two had no love for me and the feeling was mutual.

Reforger '79 was another great hit with them....

Thanks to one of the Losers they saddled me with from the line companies for the exercise (there was only two of us assigned to the section with two tanks, a Duce and a Half and a jeep to operate) I had an AVLB jammed up against the ASP fence in Katterbach while moving back to Bamberg after Reforger was over with.

By the time I got that beast out of there we had to drag it the whole length of the fence, tearing it down as we went, and ended up creating a 10 foot deep ditch out of the 3 foot deep drainage ditch that ran along the fence.

The road collapsed, jamming the tank up against the fence, the dip***** ran off back to Alpha Company and I was stuck getting the damned thing out by myself after sending my tank on ahead with the other crew. We sunk the M-88 trying to get the tank out and sunk another M-88 trying to get the first M-88 unstuck!

The desiel 88's just didn't have the same torque and pulling power as the old Gasser 88's. Of course they didn't shoot flames out their ass ends 10 to 12 feet either. We finally had to call in the last Gasser (MoGas Powered) 88 we had left in the inventory to unstick us all. :)

Good Times! I didn't sleep for 8 days on that little job.

When I left in 1980 they were just getting in the A3's.

We were in the field 8 to 10 months every year and had alerts damn near every week and some times 2 to 3 times a week that we were back in barracks.

Shortly after I got to 3-35 AR in October '83 we reorganized to Division 86 standards and CSC disappeared. Mortar platoon, scouts, etc. went to HHC but the AVLBs left the battalion completely.

From the time I got there no one painted names on their tanks. I don't know if that was a battalion directive, or 1st Armored Division. The only thing we had that even sniffed of "individuality" was the "dominos" on the
back of our bustle racks. Each company was a different combination of colors (red with yellow dots was Delta). The first number represented platoon, and the second was the tank (6= platoon leader, or commander; 4=platoon sergeant; 2 & 3 = the wingman's tank). As far as I know these were unique to 3-35 Armor.

I guess when that BC went so did individuality again. The Dumbass Bastards never could understand that by naming a tank you take ownership of it in a real way. Esprit raises and so does maintenance and gunnery skills. This is your baby and she may not be the youngest belle at the ball but she can take care of you just fine, if you take care of her.

Great thread - keep it up.

In between wars the American Army lives off the surplus from the last war. Korea was fought with everything from WWII including rations. Dad called it the "Surplus War". In basic training we were eating 15 year old C-Rats so I know what he meant now.

At my early duty stations my TA-50 was for the most part was brand new, right out of the box and made in 1945. I had a sheepskin parka liner, a wolf's skin fringed and wool lined parka hood, we had to dye all the leather parts such as our .45 holsters black because they were brand new and brown. Hell, my shelter half had buttons instead of snaps! Could never mate up to another one when I went to school so got to sleep alone a lot. :)

The equipment worked but all that weight took some getting used to. I will still pick wool and sheepskin over all these synthetics when I have the choice.

We didn't have anything new until Regan took office.

Things got pretty bad during the Carter years. We had no gas, oil or treads for our tanks, they stopped paying us for a bit and even closed the messhall. They had no food to serve. I have no use for that F@cker.

those cobra photos reminded me of one incident that occured during the cold war.




From the Washington Post archives:
Czech Fighter Fires at U.S. Copter Patrolling W. German Border.
Michael Weisskopf, Washington Post Staff Writer
October 2, 1985

A Czechoslovak military jet crossed into West Germany Saturday and fired at least two missiles at a U.S. Army helicopter flying a "routine" surveillance mission near Czechoslovakia's southwest border, Pentagon officials said yesterday.

The Cobra attack helicopter, carrying a two-man crew, was not struck and returned safely to its base near Nuremberg without returning the fire, said Defense Department spokesman Robert B. Sims.
The United States filed a "strong protest" with the Czechoslovak Embassy here Monday, Sims said. He told reporters at a briefing that the Cobra did nothing to provoke "this irresponsible act which endangered the lives of the U.S. crewmen."

The incident was the 17th violation of West German airspace by Warsaw Pact aircraft in the last six months but the first in which missiles were fired at a U.S. aircraft, according to Sims.

In April 1984, a Cobra came under missile and cannon attack from two Soviet-built warplanes, flown by Czechoslovaks, as it patrolled the border between West Germany and Czechoslovakia. The Pentagon acknowledged later that the U.S. helicopter, which escaped damage, had strayed more than six miles into Czechoslovak airspace.

A Pentagon official said Saturday's attack took place near the West German town of Freyung about a mile from the Czechoslovak border. He said intelligence reports indicate that the pilot of the Czechoslovak L39 jet trainer knew the Cobra had not strayed across the border.

"You have to believe either they're not under positive control or the incident was deliberate provocation," he said of the Czechoslovak pilot.
A State Department official said the attack reflected a "cat and mouse game" played by opposing aircraft patrolling the borders that separate Warsaw Pact and North Atlantic Treaty Organization nations. He said there is no indication that the L39 intended to hit the Cobra.
"I don't think a chopper would have been too hard to hit if they took aim," he said. "But we need to remind them that we take these things seriously. Maybe next time they won't miss."

Sims said the L39 fired two to four rockets at the Cobra without warning. He said he did not know the type and range of the air-to-air missiles, or how close they came to the Cobra. Nor could he say how near the Czechoslovak plane came to the helicopter before launching the attack.
Another L39 was in the area but did not enter West German airspace, according to Sims.

The spokesman said the Cobra, which was armed with 20mm guns, made no attempt to return the fire in what would have been a "mismatch" if a confrontation with the jet fighter had occurred.
Sims said the attack took place about 1 a.m. Saturday in the southeast corner of West Germany, in an area wedged between Czechoslovakia to the north and Austria to the south.

Two separate groups of West German citizens witnessed and confirmed the attacks, according to Sims.

The Cobra, assigned to the 2nd Armored Cavalry at Feucht Army Airfield near Nuremberg, was conducting a routine reconnaissance mission, he said. U.S. aircraft patrol the border every day as a "confidence-building measure" to make sure there are no unusual fortifications, troop movements or changes in troop composition, he said.

A Pentagon official said the Cobra's pilot and copilot did not initially realize they were targets of an attack and thought their helicopter was backfiring. After observing the smoke of rocket fire, they spotted the L39 and dropped in altitude to evade the attack, according to the official. The crew then landed in a field and checked the craft for damage before returning to their base, he said.

Sims said the helicopter crew was experienced and well trained for surveillance flights. The pilot had 680 hours of flight time, including 250 hours in the border region.

I was assigned to the Indications and Warning Section of HQ'S USAREUR & 7th Army. We reported this incident and all others as a "BOCOVIR" Border/Corridor Violation Report. Such activity was for all the East West Borders and the three air corridors to Berlin. The Helicopters flew what were called "Red Catcher" flights and were essentially the baits on the hook intended to provoke/monitor activities across the fence.

I'll try to answer your question based on my experience (limited by my memory!). I was in 856th ASA (Army Security Agency) Company (later Alpha Company of the 533rd MI Battalion) in 3rd Armored Division from 1978-80. Most of that time I was assigned to a jamming team, which consisted of a TLQ-17 jammer mounted on a M151 A2 jeep. (As an aside, although it may have been an official designation, in 7 years in the Army I don't recall anyone EVER referring to it as a MUTT - it was just a Jeep.)

By wirecutter I assume you mean the vertical bar mounted at the front of the jeep. I don't remember ever seeing one. That doesn't mean they didn't exist, I just don't remember any. As far as the M60, I would say that wasn't very common either. If memory serves, the MPs might have had some. From 1983-86 I was in a tank battalion in 1st Armored Division. There were 2 jeeps in each tank company, and several in HHC. None had wirecutters, or M60 mounts. There were two infantry battalions in our brigade, and I don't remember them having those things either.

Backseat benches are a little harder to pin down, simply because it's hard to remember that minor detail. During Winter REFORGER 1985 all 1st Armored Division officers were used as umpires for 8th Infantry Division. I spent the entire REFORGER riding around in one of our jeeps, and I can't for the life of me remember what was in the back of the jeep. I lived in that thing for almost 2 weeks but that little detail escapes me.

I think we had benches in the back of our jeeps when I was in 3d AD. I spent most of my time in the jamming team jeep. The TLQ-17 jeep had an antenna that mounted on the front bumper. We'd take the passenger seat out and turn it around so it faced backwards (the whole seat came out. It had pins at the base that held it in place). The jammer consisted of a suitcase-sized box that opened like a book. The only way to have the room to open and use it was to face the seat backwards and mount the jammer in the back of the jeep. I spent hours sitting in that jeep staring at the back. Again, I'm pretty sure all our jeeps had benches in the back, but it was something you saw every day and didn't think much about it.

Here are some pictures of our jeeps in 3d Armored Division, 1978-80. The first two show the TLQ-17 jammer and antenna mounted. The rest are other jeeps in the company on recon and map reading exercises.

We usually patrolled with two wheeled vehicles with two to three personnel in each vehicle. When I started patrolling in the early 80s we used M151s, then moved to CUCVs, then to HMMWVs. Armored vehciles were stricktly verbotten within the 1K zone...in fact I think 5Ks was a close as we could move armored vehicles. As for communications, we of course had radios and stayed in contact with the patrol camp. If for some reason we couldn't use the radio we were issued DMs so we could make a phone call.

God i miss those days. I remember on the main NATO ex in 86, we were an 432 mounted battalion who, were to hold an area against an attack by US forces in M2s. Well needless to say it didnt go to plan and 1 of the US tracks got stuck in our position, just inside a woodline. It got stuck in our A Coys area and the crew wouldnt be coerced into "coming out to play" and just further infuriated the Jocks by throwing flash bangs and smoke grenades out of the hatches.
Well needless to say when the umpires and the recovery came for the vehicle, it had been raped. Anything that could be removed was, up to and including the track. Should've came out when they had the chance. All the guys wanted to do was trade.

Got around to digitizing some of the photos my father took during his time in the Dutch army.

Great pictures Niels.

These aren't exactly NATO pictures, they're Swiss. But still interesting since there's little doubt as to who they were arming up against...
