It seems to me as if the commonwealth carrier sections are taking disproportionally high losses in battles. I've embedded an example from a 1944 (D-Day) campaign against the AI on challenging. It's turn 9 and I've lost 960 carrier sections and 892 rifle sections, even though the carrier sections only make up a relativity small part of the infantry strength in commonwealth divisions. Is this WAD?

As Axis, i can report doing these type of casualties to carrier sections. My interpretation, is that this was a sort of ambush (AT rifles firing at close range):

This could be a function of what units have been fighting. Whilst overall, Carrier sections might be a low % of troops, if you use mobile divisions to do your fighting you will expose them a lot more. If Carrier sections are the only infantry present, they will be the only infantry casualties. Also this is one example...Anyone else seen this?

In my experience this happens more or less every time; regardless if you attack with CW infantry divisions or armour divisions, the ratio of lost carrier sections to rifle sections is roughly 1:1, which means that more often than not you loose half or more of the carrier sections in a division per each deliberate attack it conducts.

Could be an issue then... if the sections are being engaged by AT weapons it could imply they don't morph into infantry at close range, effectively dooming then to fight mounted. If they did that in RL you would get high losses. Carrier Platoons should be vehicles at range 2000+ and infantry by 500, transitioning somewhere between
