Pet Peeve.

Not trying to be a dick to anyone here, but it drives me nuts, when people refer to an Artillery battery as a "Company" An Armored group as a "Battalion", etc etc.

Army, Corps, doesn't matter, because they're that big.

Divisions, Specforces and Rangers N/A.

Brigade. This is Infantry. Regular Infantry. Specforces, Rangers, Armor, Air cav. are all classified as "Groups"

Company: Armor and Air Calvary Is a troop Artillery is called a battery. This is the smallest number of units for Armor, Cav, and Arty.

Platoon and squad is still the same for everything.

Hope this helps!

I get what you're saying, but...

This doesn't really help matters much then because it's easier to use that terminology and those figures than to try and generate a relative size of whatever is being used than to actually list a number, in my mind at least.

Eg. I would rather say the 5th Artillery Regiment than a thousand artillery cannons. Yeah, I estimated that an "Artillery Regiment" would contain 1000 pieces of artillery and the troops, transports, supplies and whatnot necessary to make the regiment function properly.
