The Qatari Reinforced Mechanized Brigade or Group in this force were somewhat affectionately dubbed "Panzer Group Qatari" by the troops of the Western Coalition Members....

The Qatari Armoured Battalion may be attached to the Qatari Mechanised Battalion creating a single, 'Reinforced' Battalion under the command of the Mechanised Battalion HQ (this is actually what was done historically). If you chose to do so add the 2 Tank Companies to the Mech Battalion, and remove the Tank Battalion HQ Stand completely (assumed to be subsumed into the Mech Btn HQ).

Use the French Datacards for all Qatari troops. The AMX-30S is the same as AMX-30B2 (1982-92 & Gulf) on Datacards. The AMX-10P Combat Teams use the AMX-10P (Mech Inf) factors. The VAB Combat Teams use the VAB (1981+) factors.

Use the US Datacards for the Saudi troops. The Saudi National Guard Support Weapon Stands are integral to the Mechanised Companies, but are consolidated here to allow representation at MSH's scale - allocate any 2 (different) support stands to each of the 3 Companies (e.g. you can't allocate both 90mm V150's to the same company).

Qatari's and Saudi's may not be 'attached' to each other's units...
