Romanian Armoured Division Romanian 1st Armoured Division: 1 x Armoured Regiment, 2 x Motorised Infantry Regiments, 1 Motorised Artillery Regiment, 1 Mech Recon Battalion (2 Motorcycle Recon Company, 1 Cavalry Recon Company, 1 Weapons Platoon (2 Lt AA, 2 47mm AT), 1 Engineer Platoon), 1 Mot Weapons Battalion (12 Lt AA, 12 47mm AT), 1 Mot Engineer Battalion, 1 Mot MP Company [2 Armoured Car Recon Companies nominally part of unit, but remained in Romania in 1941, dunno about 1942, no organisational details given] Romanian Armoured Regiment: 2 Armoured Battalions (total of 41 x Lt Tank (R2 = Czeck Skoda LT35), 8 x Lt AA) Romanian Motorised Infantry Regiment x 2: 2 x Motorised Infantry Battalions (3 x Motorised Infantry Companies, 1 x Motorised MG Company), 1 x Armoured (really Motorised) Infantry Company (4 x 47mm AT, 16 LMG, 4 HMG), 1 x Motorised Weapons Company (6 x 81mm Mortars, 6 x 37mm AT, 6 x 45mm AT) Motorised Artillery Regiment: 2 x Medium Artillery Battalions (12 x 100mm Howitzers each), 1 x Medium Artillery Battalion (12 x 105mm Howitzer) In DCCB Terms ... 1) 1 Armoured Regiment, 2 Motorised Infantry Regiments, 1 Motorised Artillery Regiment for a 4 element Division. 2) Armoured Regiment: 109 x Lt Tank (Skoda LT35 or, possible, Skoda Pz38(t)), 11 x PzIIIn, 11 x PzIVg, 8 x Lt AA, 10 SdKfz 222 Armoured Cars 3) Motorised Regiment x 2: 1000 Infantry (Romanian), 16 Lt AT (4 x 47mm, 6 x 45mm, 6 x 37mm or 9 x 75mm PAK 40 or 9 x 50mm PAK), Trucks (??), 8 x Half Tracks 4) Motorised Artillery Regiment: 200 2nd Line Infantry (Romanian), 24 x 100mm Howitzer, 12 x 105mm Howitzer, Trucks (??). Note: Again, no idea how many trucks ... but, presumably, the bare minimum. The Armour Regiment TO&E is uncetain, sources seem contradictory ... or, perhaps, it changed rapidly through CB (for example, I strongly suspect there were only about 40 LT35 or Pzkfw 38(t)s, rather than the number alleged, and that the Pz. IIIs and IVs largely replaced any nominal additional numbers of those types ... but it's a guess, and no more. Likewise, the AT Gun strength of the Motor Infantry Regiments, by CB they seem to have had 75mm and 50mm PAK, but may still have had some of the early, smaller caliber, guns as well ... it is unclear).
