Apologies if this is in the manual and I've missed it, but is the unit size label in the attached image just a label? Does anything actionable follow on from it being Army Group versus Corps, for example?

Asking because I made a test scenario with units with same equipment and different unit size labels and the strengths and supply usage were the same. Thanks!

Just a label. Through history regiments have meant different things and were of different sizes. In game you can call a unit anything you want. Won't have any effect on strength. So I could make a unit with a division symbol XX and put in one squad. Or I could use a brigade symbol X and it will still have the same strength of one squad either way.

The only exception is the section icon. This will prevent the unit from dividing.

I appreciate it Golden! I never realized how little I knew about TOAW until I started trying to build a scenario and interacting with the force editor.

Also note that when using the “Section” label the graphics for the label can easily be modified so the Section appears on screen as a company, battalion or whatever you desire as the lowest divisible unit. This is a very common mod.
