Worldwide Equipment Guide
This Worldwide Equipment Guide (WEG) serves as an interim guide for use in training,simulations, and modeling until the publication of FM 100-65,
Capabilities-Based OpposingForce: Worldwide Equipment Guide.
The WEG is designed for use with theFM 100-60 seriesof capabilities-based opposing force field manuals. It provides the basic characteristics of selectedequipment and weapons systems readily available to the capabilities-based OPFOR, and generallylisted in either
FM 100-61, Armor- and Mechanized-Based Opposing Force: Organization Guide
FM 100-63, Infantry-Based Opposing Force: Organization Guide
. Selected weapons systemsand equipment are included in the categories of infantry weapons, infantry vehicles, reconnais-sance vehicles, tanks/assault vehicles, antitank, artillery, air defense, engineer and logistic systems,and rotary-wing aircraft.The pages in this WEG are designed for insertion into loose-leaf notebooks. Since thisguide does not include all possible OPFOR systems identified in the OPFOR field manuals,equipment sheets covering additional systems not contained in this initial issue will be publishedperiodically. Systems selected will be keyed directly to the baseline equipment contained in the100-60 series and substitute systems found in the appropriate substitution matrix. The WEG isscheduled for eventual publication on the worldwide web for use by authorized government or-ganizations.
Due to the proliferation of weapons through sales and resale, wartime capture, and li-censed or unlicensed production of major end items, distinctions between equipment as friendly orOPFOR have blurred. Sales of upgrade equipment and kits for application to weapon systemshave further blurred distinctions between old or obsolete systems and modern systems. ThisWEG describes base models listed in the FMs or upgrades of those base models, which reflectcurrent capabilities. Many less common variants and upgrades are also addressed.
The WEG is organized by categories of equipment, in chapters. The format of the equip-ment pages is basically a listing of parametric data. This permits updating on a standardized basisas data becomes available. For meanings of acronyms and terms, see the Glossary. Please notethat although most terms are the same as U.S. terminology, some reflect non-U.S. concepts andare not comparable or measurable against U.S. standards. For example, if an OPFOR armorpenetration figure does not say RHA (rolled homogeneous armor), do not assume that is the stan-dard for the figure. Please consult the Glossary often. If questions remain, contact this office.

ivSystem names refer back to the field manuals. However, they also reflect intelligencecommunity changes in naming methods. Alternative Designations include the manufacturer’sname, as well as U.S./NATO designators. Note also that the WEG focuses on the completeweapon system (e.g., AT-4/5 antitank guided missile launcher or 9P148 ATGM launcher vehicle),versus a component or munition (9P135 launcher assembly or AT-4/5 ATGM).Common and consistent technical notes and parameters are used in chapters 2 through 7,since the systems contained in those chapters have similar weapon and automotive technologies.Chapters 1 (Infantry Weapons), 8 (Engineer and Logistics) and 9 (Rotary-wing Aircraft) offersystems that have many unique parameters and therefore may not be consistent with those in otherchapters.We solicit your assistance in finding unclassified information which can be certified foruse. Questions and comments on systems data should be addressed to the authors noted for eachchapter. For questions concerning distribution to U.S. government organizations, please contactthe local publications clerk, and:
