Sharing is caring!

Below are some Tables of organization and Equipment that outline the personnel, equipment, and organization of various types of units. For reenacting purposes it’s doubtful you’ll ever have this all (and it’s doubtful in WW2 the units in question ever did) but it’s a general guideline on what to aim for.
