RE:ARKS 25)L1 1~ General as General Situation The si uat?i on i n t Tie ar ea. of the Fourth Gds Mecz Army (Cadre) has remained almost constant, as was analyzed in a previous report. No new units have been observed. n, Maneuvers (1) (a) -Numerous previous reports in- dicate that the TEMPIU training area mist be eonsia.erea -;..Le prin- cip , maneuver grounds for the component units of the Fourth Gds Mecz Army (Ca.dre) with the exception of the 7th Gds Meoz Div (Cadre). Ltore component units of the army (including units with four hundred tanks and armored vehicles) went to the TBLIPLIN training area in mid-June 1949. (b) From the information that ei;;ht TELIPLIN bakeries were ordered to deliver a daily quota. of 1,000 loaves of bread each up to the end of October 1949, inferences can be made as to the duration of the maneuver period and the number of troops engaged in the maneu- vers. From this and other information it is assumed that the ma- neuvers v0_11 continue until about the end of October 1949 and that the units engaged in maneuvers in the TELIPLIN area total five to eight thousand troops. (2) L1o:~ t of the component units of the 7th Gds Mecz Div (Cadre) were stir. in the LIEBEU0 'E training; area et the end of July 1949.
