After playing more and reading bayonet strength, I get that you guys got the german composition just about right even if that means 5 men squads. I still find it difficult to justify bringing a transport or truck for the guns though. Those limited support slots are precious.
There should be a distinction between platoon support (like sdkfz 251, 250 or truck transport and pzschreck) and heavy company level support like mortars and heavy machine guns. I don't know how would one implement that in-game though. The compromise I've reached is to try and define different types of platoons for example:
1 HQ (Kompaniechef), 2 squads (each with a trupp 1 & 2) and two transports, be it kubelwagen, sdkfz 251 or trucks
1 HQ (Zugtrupp), 2 squads (each with a trupp 1 & 2, maybe different types with extra pzfaust), 2 pzschreck/pzjâger
MG defensive platoon:
1 HQ (Zugtrupp), 2 squads (each with a trupp 1 & 2) and 2 Heavy MG's
The problem I see is that this would leave me with even less infantry to play with but I see it as the only way to play with those underplayed teams.
Have any other suggestion?
