I agree with Cplnew, honestly.

I do want to ask, Caddaric, what are your sources for this? I am not accusing you of having bad sources or of being wrong, I simply am highly interested in researching such things myself and think that asking about your sources would be a good place to start :D

The most afordable source (US army, WWII, 2015) is militaryresearch.org.
Be careful, about dates and modifications dates because two month earlier or later, organization can be different.

The most complete source are Yves J.Bellanger books (US, WWII, Infantry and armor, 2010) all absolutely top-notch.

And the must... unfortunately for US army only, but since near 80 years now: Field Manuals!

All this is possible thanks to DP who done all the material and give inspiration too!

I really appreciate you sharing your sources, because I really enjoy your work. And because of that, I really want to look further into it.

I was almost sure that the modern Us Army was drawn from these manuals:

To look further, Yves J.Bellanger books is the best solution.

Oh not Him Again...
For the shithead who will recognize himself, look for that bloody TOE Nb, you will have the source of your document, and for all my drawings and even more, and for god's sake, leave us alone.

Sorry it took me so long to get back to you Caddaric, I was thinking of some of the newer supporting units like the Multi-Roll Bridge Company, or your take on vehicles such as the M1975 launcher vehicle used for the M19 Dry Support Bridge or the new M8E1 Chemical Biological Protective Shelter. Or maybe even the US Marine Corps LVSR or MTVR family of vehicles.

One thing I have noticed in your organizational chart for a
U.S. tank battalion - the symbol you use for the light tank
company is actually the NATO symbol/icon for armored
cavalry. I think you need something else to represent the
light tank (M5 Stuart) company.
Also you need to remember that these formations were used prior to NATO being formed so the symbols are correct for the time period. A lot of the symbols were re-used and re-designated with the forming of NATO.

I'm working on it! (Engineer battalions, Corps level) Infortunatly the HQs companies are incomplete for now but I'm not desperate...
US Marines units are the point.

Does this author do only US organizations, or do they also touch on those of other nations? And if not, do you recommend any other authors for European nation's organizations?
Keep up the good work, I love all the detail you have/continue to do!
