Yes, I am tried to reduce it down to a Company size, but after getting down to the Battalion you start to lose the smaller units in the division, such as the Recon platoons. I wanted all the base formations to be included. I also thought that the paper strength of 12x Rifle Squads and 4x Maxims in a battle, while quite a few units, did not seem to overload a player during a turn. And with more reduction due to combat losses, a Battalion seemed to be a good place to stop. I have read somewhere that a Russian division was often floating around 50% strength soon after being exposed to battle and with the creation of new divisions being more important then bringing existing divisions back up to strength, the Battalion is where I stopped. Without too close a look, I think that there are about 5 reorganizations within the time frame that COH represents. It will be nice when we get some new units to play with. hint...hint
Thanks for the info Jamm.
