U.S. Marines, '42-'43.

I just fished an afternoon long Marine project. One whole full strength platoon from the mid-war period. Note, all unit strength ideas are from a website called bayonet strength.

Command section, Lieutenant, platoon sergeant, demo corporal, scout, and three runners.

A rifle section. sergeant, corporal, two BAR gunners, and eight infantry men.

Each squad had at it's disposal a flame thrower and demolition specialist when requested.

The platoon had at it's disposal a bazooka when requested.

Some average figures from a squad.

None of the figures are based yet, obviously.
