A Swedish mechanized battalion is positioned in the 1980s.

“One further misunderstanding needs clarification. Although a platoon or company
commander is not entitled to summon up aircraft or the divisional artillery, this
certainly does not mean that Soviet forces operate without fire support. The
commander of a Soviet motor-rifle battalion (400 men) has 6 120mm mortars at his
disposal. The commander of an American battalion (900 men) has only 4 106mm
mortars. The commander of a Soviet regiment (2,100 men) has a battalion of 18
122mm howitzers and a battery of 6 Grad P multi-barrelled rocket launchers. The
commander of an American brigade (4,000-5,000 men) has no fire weapons at all.
Commanders of Soviet and American divisions have approximately the same quantity
of fire weapons.”

Keep in mind that this was written in the mid-70s, so a lot of things might have changed, and I am pretty sure organization of other NATO land-forces and non-NATO forces at that time were different from that of US (Or, I would say I hope it was different)
