Thank you for your kind comments Big B.
Infantry: The infantry is a bit complicated, but not too much. Infantry components changed over time in the NRA, but most of the changes happened before the period of interest and so can be ignored. Purely by happenstance, the major regional armed forces, particularly those of Shanxi, Guangdong, Sichuan, Yunnan, and Guangxi, had company/platoon level organizations that resembled those of the NRA, at some point in the NRA evolutionary process.
In ‘Model’ and ‘New’ Type units, the platoon organization was 5 squads of 10-men each. This is cumbersome and badly skews the assault value calculations, so the troops and weapons should be consolidated into 3 squads, giving more rational firepower and assault values for higher level units. This gives a company of 9 squads, a battalion of 27, and a regiment of 81. Squad specs are:
Type=23, LC=17, Anti-Armor=5, Anti-Soft=15
The 1936 Type units were substantially the same. Regiments would comprise 84 squads (by including the special service/guard platoon).
The 1938/39 Type units were organized differently at the platoon level. At this time, squad size shrinks (men per squad increased from 10 to 14, but squads per platoon falls from 5 to 3) while armament increases by addition of grenade dischargers. This results in squads with specs of:
Type=23, LC=14, Anti-Armor=12, Anti-Soft=16
The 1938/39 regiment technically returns to 81 squads, but the division includes a special service/guard company which could be considered as a platoon per regiment, letting one keep the 84 squad constitution.
1942 units, through the end of the war, were constituted as above. Once again, however, the Chinese made provision for certain ‘select’ units. In these, the all three squads were armed uniformly, each with an LMG. They still included 2 grenade dischargers, but these were simply handed out whenever the mission called for them. These troops would be found, in small quantities, in the central component of Chiang’s personal command. The specs for these ‘heavy’ squads would be:
Type=23, LC=14, Anti-Armor=12, Anti-Soft=19
Note: Although very easy to produce, the GDs did not become immediately available in sufficient quantities to completely arm all units. It took more than two years to fill out the entire army with the authorized 2 GDs per squad. This would imply that many squads only received one weapon, or that some squads had both while others had none. If this level of detail is desired, the relevant specs would be:
Type=23, LC=14, Anti-Armor=12, Anti-Soft=14 – no GDs
Type=23, LC=14, Anti-Armor=12, Anti-Soft=15 – one GD
Type=23, LC=14, Anti-Armor=12, Anti-Soft=16 – two GDs
Note 2: Anti-armor is predicated on the 12.1 LP T 7.92x57 iS at 100m
