Because the full list is a secret! hahaha Ok, just almost impossible to find, and as far as I know there is none in English. Otherwise I remember seeing it at Armchair General, but can't find the link.

These are in Russian:

Wow!

Might as well be a secret,I've always found their symbols to be a real chore to understand.

The German isn't much better but at least there are plenty of references on line to aide in understanding them.

I'm glad we have the NATO option in the game.Their tactical symbols are much easier to define.

Here, I grabbed these for you from Lester Grau's "The Bear Went Over the Mountain":

(Grau also said that "Quite frankly, I find their graphics more "user friendly" than Western graphics, flexible and illustrative. The Russians can show the sequential development of an action by adding times or identifying lines to their graphics.")

All strictly contrary, Soviet symbols the most clear and simple.
NATO symbols is redundant, and generally for combat at battalion level useless. Well, this is how to write numbers with Roman digits (NATO) instead of Arabic (USSR), kind of cool, but in real life is not necessary.

This is the manual I usually refer to for NATO symbols.

Nato Symbols are strange.......so are ww2 Germans.. But at lowest unit levels in US army.....where nato symbols get hard to find..... well alot of small unit stuff looks alot like red armys. Like guns, mgs, mortars, arty. Basiclly same crap. Which actually probably denotes an ealier system. AS the Us Army loved French crap around 1900........and so did the Czar types....I am betting a French influence. As tanks and armor are TOTALLY different......ya I am guessing late 19th / early 20th century dry and boring field manual that got traded around international circles.
