CHESTER HAS MOVED!: Another followup . . .

Another followup . . .

If the Brit and I are right, then that means: 2/5 is still in or around Ramadi, 1/2 will be detached from 24th MEU to fight in Ramadi RCT 5 will C2 Ramadi and other battalions from Fallujah will be shifted to RCT 5 for the fight. Possibly with 2/7 Cav for armor assets. First question to figuring out if this is right is: How many bad guys are in Ramadi? Another word on the armor assets: more than likely they are not being employed as a battalion. Urban fighting requires tank-infantry teams and to do that you have to mix them up. So at the individual battalion level, even though they are still reporting as 2/7 Cav or 1/8, they have added tank platoons and spun off infantry companies. This is textbook though, and the textbook isn't always followed.

Chester,

As a war gamer of the past, I feed off the unit compositions. Example, how many tanks are in a tank platoon? Company?

If you could have an area on your blog stating typical unit compositions it would give your readers a sense of scale.

Thanks!!
