Royal Army - Military Organization

Unit Hierarchy

Fireteam - 5 men
Squad - (Two Fireteams) - 10 men
Platoon - (Five Squads) - 50 men
Company - (Five Platoons) - 250 men
Battalion - (Four to Six Companies (ASR Battalions are made up of only Two Companies)) - 1000 - 1500 men
Regiment - ( Two or Three Battalions (Of varying size)) - 2500 - 3500 men
Brigade - (Two Regiments) - 5000 - 7000 men
Division - (Two to Four Brigades) - 16500 - 30500 men (Incl. HQ, logistics and support units)
Corps or Command - (One or Two Divisions) - Varying Size
Army - (Two Corps) - Varying Size

Temporary Units

Whenever the need for a temporary force arrises several Regiments, Brigades, Divisions and, rarely, Corps can be organized from several seperate units and will carry the designation Task Force or Expeditionary. Thus, a regiment composed of battalions from two different regiments will be designated as X Task Force Regiment or X Expeditionary Regiment. Same goes for Brigades and Division if those are subject to Task Force Corps.
Divisions will usually, if not part of a Task Force Corps, be designated as a Task Force, ie. West-African Task Force  or Task Force 2.
If the Task Force is a Corps sized unit, the Corps will use the same designation conventions as a divisional size Task Force.
The size of Task Force units are usually, but not always, the same size as their standing counterparts. Thus as Task Force Brigade can easily be made up of three or even four regiments.


Chain of Command

Fireteam - Lance Corporal, Corporal or Sergeant
Squad - Lance Corporal to Staff Sergeant
Platoon - Warrant Officer, first or Second-Lieutenant
Company - Captain or Major
Battalion - Lieutenant Colonel
Regiment - Colonel
Brigade - Brigadier General
Division - Major General
Corps or Command - Lieutenant General
Army - General or Field Marshall (The latter is during wartime only)


Regimental Structure

In the Mfasan army, regiments are half brigade sized units composed of a core infantry or armoured force with support elements attached. Two examples of regiments of the Royal Army:

Armoured Regiment
- One Mechanized Reconaissance Platoon
- Two Tank Battalions
- Four to Six Mechanized Infantry Companies
- One or Two Artillery Batteries (w/ supporting elements)
- Two Engineer Companies (One Combat and One Bridge Companies)
- Two Support Companies (Logistics, Field Hospital)

Infantry Regiment
- One Mechanized Reconaissance Platoon
- Two or Three Mechanized Infantry Battalions
- One or Two Artillery Batteries (w/ supporting elements)
- Two Engineer Companies (One Combat and One Bridge Companies)
- Two Support Companies (Logistics, Field Hospital)


Unit Designation
In the Mfasan Army, all infantry regiments are considered Mechanized Infantry regiments despite lacking said designation in their unit names.
