US Rifle Cos. '44 & '45 are appearing in the Force Selection screen without a 1st Plt. This is caused by errors in ScnUnits.txt. The two selected cells highlighted in blue below are Co. HQ sub-units. They occupy what should be the 1st Plt slots for their respective companies. The rifle platoons that should be in those cells, 147 & 148, have been pushed back to the 2nd Plt. cell. Thus, the platoon numbering goes from 2nd to 5th for each Co.

The US Rifle Co. '42 layout on the top line has its 3 rifle platoon in the correct cells but its missing its Co. HQ sub-unit (143). The '42 Co. HQ only consists of an unarmed 3/4 ton and jeep but it raises the question as to whether its absence will affect sub-unit re-organization (column H) in a grand campaign?

By moving the '44/'45 Co. HQs (144, 145) to the end of the sub-units row, all rifle plts are enumerated correctly as 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and the weapons plt as 4th.

To be clear: All the units in all the platoons do appear but what should be 1st platoon is numbered as 2nd platoon. This is purely cosmetic. I have this on my list of issues but it's lower priority. Changing the ordering in ScnUnits.txt is not an idea fix as it may cause issues with existing saved games.

Yes, in units where the Co. HQ occupies column L, all the sub-units are on the roster - just numbered starting with 2nd plt.

So the '42 US rifle Co. not having a Co. HQ isnt a issue in the GC when it transitions from the '42 oob to '43?

No, the re-org isn't an issue. Platoons re-organize according to the data in the table -- i.e. Rifle platoon 42 becomes Rifle platoon 43, etc. After that any missing units (like the Coy HQ 43) are created and filled with new soldiers.
