Upgrade the formation. This can increase the echelon. You can also downgrade.
In the orders bar, Unit Admin > Upgrade.
You can also laterally change the type of formation for some.
For example, I have already created a Motorized Light Infantry Brigade. I want it to be mechanized now that I have APC's.
I downgrade the unit to Light Infantry Brigade, and then upgrade to Mechanized Light Infantry Brigade--all in the same turn. Troops and equipment are sent back or replaced by the SHQ at the end of the turn to agree with the TO&E for the formation's OOB.
The paths to make these kind of formation changes are based on the starting model types--infantry, tanks, artillery, etc.
See also: Discover the Formation Type Overview, for more details about formations.
These actions have minor PP costs.
