Squads: A squad is a small formation of about 11 to 15 soldiers who are commanded by a high ranking NCO, they are a group. A squad is expected to work together, such as patrolling together, fighting together, defending together, residing in the same place et cetera. A squad is under a company, the company commander mostly gives orders to his squad, a example would be during a assault on a building that Squad A would be tasked with frontal assault, Squad B entering from behind and Squad C covering the windows. (we would be speaking of a really large building then). A squad has 1 SL, 1 SSL/Radioman, 1 Engineer, 1 MG, 1 Assault and 10 Riflemen(one medic)
Companies: A company is a military formation of 80-250 soldiers, a company is based upon platoons, and those platoons are divided into squads. On the server we do not use platoons, so we will mainly be focussing on companies commanding squads. A company is led by a Captain in the Red Army and led by a Hauptmann in the Wehrmacht. Companies mostly don't work as a whole on the server, most companies divide their squads into individual tasks but in major events a company may find itself charged with the same objective for the entire company, meaning that every squad will perform the same objective instead of each squad holding other objectives.
