There are currently three sizes of unit formation, BRIGADE/BAT, CORPS/REG, ARMY/DIV, I think it would be more appropriate to swap the position of brigade and division here.

In the NATO symbology Brigade and Division are directly adjacent, with division being the bigger one:

While the order is quesitonable, swapping them would make no sense.

I know, exactly because division is a bigger unit, It would be appropriate to make it an HQ of several battalions, instead of being a subject to another HQ.
According the order inside the Wikipedia link you've just shared, if three sizes of formation are swapped to division/battalion, corps/regiment, and army/brigade, each headquarter would be just three levels above its subordinates, which is very tidy and orderly. Otherwise it would be relatively confusing

Unit designation as well as ship classification will always remain a mystery to us enenlightenend. Also each time/ nation has its own classification. ShEm has seems to simulate WWII style armies.

In a WWII setting a division was the formation where different kind of troops (infantry, tanks) were organized, giving it a high degree of independence. Its manouver elements were mostly three regiments and it had adittional support units attached, providing logistics, communications, arty, engineers, AA, AT ...

A tank division might have 1 tank and 2 armored regiments and an airborne division three airborne regiments. A regiment would consist of several battalions of typically the same kind.

For larger scale operations divisions were organized in Corps, Armies, Army Groups and Theater Commands.

A modern brigade functions as a division with the size of a regiment. It typically has battalions as manouver elements, not regiments.

Would be nice if we could really organize our ShEm armies along these lines.
