bojan 0 Posted May 28 Author Report Share Posted May 28 9 hours ago, Perun said: Which numeration did naval infantry brigade had No info. Structure checks from a two different sources, but there are still some doubts about exact weapon allocations - AT company, engineer company and artillery batteries should have more SMGs if we follow general plan for organization of other such formations. Through it might be that those "rear-area" units had less SMGs in the Naval Infantry Bde since Naval Infantry Bns were pure SMG based ones. Quote Link to post Share on other sites
